The Speed Triple is cooler, it's cheaper, AND it has better ergos...

The Tuono was my #1 at the last MO naked shootout. It feels like you're riding a big dirt bike. It's certainly practical enough for every day use, and crazy enough to get you thrown in the slammer. I'm sure the new one is even better, which is scary.

I've noticed that nobody ever seems to mention the SV1000S when talking about all these naked bikes, and especially naked twins. What gives? Does anybody know if the enlarged throttle bodies, increased compression ratio, and smaller flywheel that Suzuki changed for '05 made a difference to the so-called "mid-range" tuning?

errr.... ooops. Just the kind of things Word's speller never tells you about.

Considering that I have to juggle daily between five languages... well, my apologies. Hope I didn't make you suffer that much.

but whats its reliability? Whats the average actuarial lifespan of a new owner? How do you hang on at 150 mph? Those are all little quibles, I like the concept of high handlebars and great acceleration. Top end is pretty irrelevant if you want to live and stay out of jail.
