These are shots taken from a dutch bike review (Motorfreaks.nl) that got me out and trade my k1200r for the MM. No regrets




A little movie starring the MM and some other SM type bikes.

Nice pics. Nice to know you switch your K1200R to the MM. I had that doubt when deciding but i finally went directly for the MM

That Dutch video was pretty entertaining...! Hey Macroenie... how about when I come to Holland (Castricum), you let me ride your MM and when you come to California (Santa Barbara), you can ride mine...

Yeah man, no problem I live pretty close to Castricum and hopefully will travel to the US next summer to meet my half sister I just recently got to know via Facebook But she lives in WI so not close to your place Im afraid.

Cheers!

The k1200r has some very nice aspects too. I was about to go for the k1300r when I spotted the MM in the same shop. Took it out for a testride and I instantly felt at home. I was smiling & grinning the entire ride and that feeling did not go away since. This is my kind of ride

Great find! This is just what I have been looking for. Expensive though as I will also need the monobloc Brembo calipers

A video of the Megamoto torquing its way up hill from Geiranger. Pace is not ballistic due to diesel spills from all the buses travelling up and down with sightseeing tourists. It's a great road with nice scenery

Mine is now gone to New Mexico. To be replaced by a Ducati 1200 MTS or the new Diavel. I enjoyed the ride with you guys. Life is good!

Very nice, thank you very much for sharing that.
How would your Tuono Factory compare to the Megamoto on that same road ?

It's not as relaxing. It needs a brisker pace to work the stiffer chassis. Intoxicating ride, but I prefer the effortless pace of the MM when I spend 12 - 14 hours on the road.

The more I ride my Megamoto the more I love it. It works incredibly well as a sport tourer with the relaxing ergos and effortless engine. I even find the seat ok for long rides.
