I was having a hard time between the current S3 and the Tuono. "New" '03 Speed Triples are now in the $7500 range. That's a bunch of track and tire cash left over. Or I can buy the Tuono on the lust factor alone.

Mighty fine article. Keep this stuff up and you might have to raise your prices to keep the riff-raff out.

Very much looking forward to the next installment! While I do enjoy reading about sport bikes - these danged sports damaged knees of mine keep me from riding one for more than 10 minutes -see Peter Egan in current CW for similar opinion.

Thanks again!

That's exactly what I thought, too. Shockingly bad sounding at idle, actually.

You are so right. I never thought about this when buying my Duc, but I've been riding for ~18 years and have NEVER, NEVER, NEVER had so much attention from the fairer sex. NEVER!

You are, of course, correct, but I'd like to think that this one has some hope of being better than it's ancestors )

Great reviews of real world sport bikes. This test alone is worth more than the piffling $12 so many on this site carp about. BTW I agree with the choice of bikes for this shoot out. These particular scoots. along with the Speed Triple are at the extreme end of the sporting standard range, and deserve to be segregated from the more standard oriented fare such as the ZRX, and Bandit. My only question is why include the FZ1 in this mix? VWW
