You won't like the S1000R after a V-twin. Power is right up at the top end and the engine feels like you have to rev the tits off it. It goes well enough when you wind it up and it's a good chassis but IMO if you fancy an I/L four the MT10 is a better bike. Thirsty, looks that only a mother could love, but more fun to ride with more character.As you know I’ve had a fucking truck load of bikes and nothing beats the Gen 1 SDR. Yes it needs a bit of fettling but most bikes don’t they ? Once done it’s so good. I’ve not had a test ride on a gen 3 yet but have had a go on the V4 SF and it’s no street bike, it’s insane top end. The Tuono Factory is mega abd Id like to ride both a S1000R and a Monster 1200R to see how they go
But both these bikes are getting left behind and both are due a major update.
