Last weekend we thought we would have our bikes out, but things didn’t work out as planned. The BMW is home but not in that good condition and the KTM didn’t start.
Instead we went on a test ride on the new CCM GP450 Adventure as the CCM test ride fleet payed Stockholm, Sweden a visit.
A great light-weight adventure bike for off-road rides, made for longer trips with packing. The seat height on the lowered version was perfect for someone my length (160 cm / 5’35 ft) and it’s half the weight as the BMW F650GS or KTM 990 Adventure.
On gravel and off road it was awesome! Light and easy managed. Would absoluetly be a fun bike for us and the way we mostly ride.
On freeways and at higher speed it’s not the most perfect bike. Another, and sometimes an important thing is the prize, from £8000 pounds / $12000 USD which is pretty much.
So, this season I think we stick to what we got, but it’s absolutly an interesting new bike ☺ …hopefully we’ll get our bikes “ready to race” in a couple of weeks.
