That was one of the best comparison tests I have read.
The MCN (US) guys do an excellent job at reporting (I think there is a real benefit to a subscriber based publication).
Rarely do the less expensive bikes get this level of attention in the glossier mags.
Hopefully you are joking. It could only have been a more stupid comparison if they had thrown a Goldwing or a Speed Triple in the comparison.
I've taken that magazine for at least 12 years and typically I've had a good opinion of it but this one was a low point.
