We have had a test ride on the XR2. Last time we had a go on a Bianchi was with the original Oltre - and had forgotten how nice they are!
Everything you want from an Italian bike - smooth sleek lines, classic colour schemes - the ride was good. With the new XR2 they have achieved a difficult feat, which is to have a ride which is both smooth and easy, so it feels like you can sit in the saddle all day - but when you want raw power acceleration, it is stiff enough to give it to you straight away
If you are wanting a tip-top all rounder, from a manufacturer with a long classy cycling heritage, then you won't go far wrong or be disappointed by the Oltre XR2!
Good luck & let us know what you go for
