Okay, the SV guys have nothing more to complain about. MO did a comparo including it.

Uh-oh. This comparo didn't turn out the way it's "supposed to".



Anybody want to make bets as to who will be first to accuse JB of being bought out by HD?



Or who will be first to bring up irrelevant anecdotes about someone they once knew who had a cousin whose neighbor once had an uncle who owned an AMF Sportster?

What a troublemaker!!! I agree, however, the XB9S seems destined to be a classic. Kinda' like T-Rex. While the SV/Monster have both become me-too kind of things. I wonder what the 'S is like at 10 or 20 k miles?

Default Which bike should I buy?

The perfect article to answer the question posted a week or two ago. Now, if only the Buell had a larger fuel tank! JB....you poor old sod. Your daddy wouldn't buy the hot rod, eh? So that's why your hooked on motorcycles......hmmmmm.



How about an article on singles? A Supermotard comparo?



Singles and Twins Forever!

I totally agree with Burns. You can go the "safe and practical" route and park your Suzuki next to your Camry OR defy convention and get yourself something really special that you will remember forever. Life is short, enjoy the ride.

Eyup. I'd be curious to see what happens when the SV1000 is thrown into the fray.



At $8K, it's still less expensive than the Duc and Buell, but it's got a whole lot more horsies. I wonder how its suspension would compare?

Speaking on the looks of the SV650, they made it angular to complement the bikini fairing's looks on the SV-S. Those angular lines do not carry over and look good with a round headlight. I would definitely take the first style of the SV over the new one, but if i had the choice between the first and second SV-S, i'd take the angular styling of the new one. On the ducati, beautiful. That's all you have to say, the designers at ducati are great except for the multistrada, what a flop. The XB9S is great looking, though funky, it's cool. **The opinions expressed in the above post are owned by me, they don't necessarily reflect the views of any motorcycle publications, online or print, by the way, this is kwayne_406's son, posting w/ permission from kwayne.**

The obvious response here, considering the price and displacement of the Ducati and Buell, being that M.O. chose the wrong naked SV for this comparo.



Make it the $7999 SV1000 with the fully adjustable suspenders and 111 rwhp and this one's over before the first shot's fired.



Also, hey, Burnsy, since you brought it up and all, care to factor in overall reliability and motor/ancillary component longevity when the subject's "20 years from now, yada, yada!" and we're including the word..........."Buell"?

Hey Burnsie, you sure that would be KPaul's clapped out SV650 and not a ratty Ninja with duct tape holding the seat together?
