I wish they still made the MM. It's almost the perfect bike: big, upright, naked, punchy engine with good economy, can take a bit of luggage, shaft driven.

I'm pining for one badly.

I've ridden the Nuda 900 and, while it's a sensational motor, it's too thirsty and buzzy to be a replacement for the standard F800 engine, especially if it's meant to live in a GS.

2012 and onward DD's have ABS. It's not terribly sophisticated, but it's there.
