But there are other, more practical reasons for riding a motorcycle: They are easier to park, use less gas and take up less space. They have one other benefit: They attract women. Motorcycles are fun, dangerous and exciting and - by extension - the men who ride them must be edgy, as well.
Are KTM motorcycles any good?
Based on a survey of more than 10 000 bike owners, Consumer Reports ranks KTM in 8th place in terms of reliability. Many adventure bike riders have ridden their KTMs around the world, and since 2001, KTM has won the Dakar Rally 18 years in a row. A well maintained KTM can be just as reliable as a Japanese bike.
