After putting a few thousand miles on a long-termer KTM 390 Duke, we declared that it can’t be topped in terms of versatility, style and performance in a $5k package. Winner of our Little Terrors Comparison against Honda’s CB500F, the little Duke punched above its weight, outpointing the bigger Japanese bike in smiles per dollar; $4,999 vs. $6,299. “The little orange ripper’s amazingly light weight and low price tag blow the Honda out of the water. What a sweet little maniac of a bike,” was our final conclusion. If the KTM isn’t your cup-o-tea, read more about the Honda CB500F – our Honorable Mention for Best Value of 2014here.
