Funny how some people are not intelligent enough to discern between opinion and fact - or to realize that they are offending fellow bikers. Even if you are just a simple-minded clown who likes to stir up sh*t. I assume from your comment that you are likely not a very accomplished rider, or a person for that matter. Perhaps we can arrange to have your ass handed to you by said "tractor" at the track, or perhaps your nearest farm road. Bring a thimble-sized helmet to protect your small mind.

None of that makes sense.



The two bikes are compared because they're both light and nimble v-twins. One is a premium product demanding a higher price, the other is a budget product with a lower price.



You contradict yourself on the size, you say it doesn't matter, then in the same sentence you toss size back in as if it does matter. Pick one and stick to it. Also- care to compare fuel mileage between the two?



Claiming the XB9 is outgunned is a load of crap. Go look at the dyno chart on MO- the XB9 out-powers the SV650 by ~5hp and ~13ft-lbs, and that's just at the peak. Around 5k rpm the difference is closer to 20hp and 20ft-lbs.



Used price is useless too, you can pick up a used XB9 for ~$4k and it'll still be the better bike with better componentry.

Funny you should mention the kids.



My pearl yellow CBR got 50 times the looks and points from the kids than anything else I've ever ridden. My current tuono factory gets the most adult comments. I think I've dropped a few rungs on the whole "cool points" scale.



Oddly enough though, half the employees at the harley dealer knew what it was and walked out to take a look. Not sure what to make of that...

The TC is a good motor, I loved my Shovelhead too but where the shovel ran out of steam this one keeps pulling.



My fav. is the '77~'78 Low Riders in gray with the two into one exhaust. I thought of putting Thunderheaders on mine to get the look but it wouldn't be the same. Those and the burgundy Willie G Wide Glides from "81 or '82
