Sean looked like Homer Simpson trying for an out of reach donut in that one.

Any thoughts on how these are with a passenger? I'm looking for a new bike and want to, occasionally, take spouse or daughter along.

Default Ha Ha Ha

You're kidding right?



If they're into torture pick the MV Agusta or the Buell. If they're into getting the crap scared out of them get the Tuono.



Either way you'll end up divorced.

The Tuono was not fitted with a race kit. It simply had a loud muffler, nothing more. -Sean

The MV and Tuono are cramped, but usable for smaller passengers over shorter distances. The Buell's passenger accomidations are useless and scary, thanks to the slope and taper of the pointy passenger pad. -Sean

Default Great review but......

......What happened to the grand daddy of all naked bikes, the ever venerable Ducati Monster? Surely this bike deserves a chance in the comparo. How does the S4R stand up amongst these motorcycle greats? (I'm really just saying this 'cos I just bought one)



BTW, Major kudos to Buell, it's nice to see it winning the accolades it deserves. I was seriously torn between a XB12R and a MS4R, but I went with the Duke. If anyone is interested I'll tell ya why.

Two votes for the Z1000... Maybe an S4 too?

Default I'll take a guess

a) the local Harley dealer is a jerk who knows nothing about sportbikes or Buells.



b) nothing sounds as soulful as a Ducati. nothing.



c) Ducatis are currently at the top of the chick food chain. Tell the girlie you're flirting with you have a Duc and she will spin on her heel and walk away from the poser on his $50,000 custom painted chopper.

Default Re: The MO Streetfighter Shootout Part I

Here I was thinking the Buell was a pretty cool bike and up crops the HD attitude..NO BODY rides them stock and NO BODY runs the stock tires.

Oddly enough I expect a bike to work properly when I buy it and run fine from the factory. If I want to change things later I will, I get the same attitude looking at HD's "you have to get a stage one" and ""You need a squeeling Beagle pipe". Sorry sport, I don't have to do a ***** thing. If it don't run stock I won't buy it.
