I'm shopping for an early 2000s Tuono or Falco. Had a Futura once, liked it, but wanted to try something different. Now, shopping for Aprilia #2 on a tight budget.

Love the looks, haven't ridden one. Shame the Roadster left the line-up. Sucks that now for Sportys we get ultra low-seats, small gas tanks, and no suspension.

Curious - why the 883 over the 1200?

Would you buy original Yamaha luggage anyway?

Other companies make luggage for them (givi mostly) and they'll make
some for the MT/FZ09 without a doubt, I don't see how not announcing
hard luggage along with the bike would matter to anyone.

Funny, that CB700S is in the "Bikes you're sorry you bought" thread. One man's ceiling...

That is strange because I think Hunter S would say that is much closer to being squeezed out of a tube than...

i don't think Hunter would approve, but there is something about the looks of the bike. really the now discontinued xr1200 would be a better choice but i sat on one of those and really did not like the seat,or the seat height.
i'm sure it would run rings around the 883r.
not to bash but i think the way the harley looks to you is more important than performance.
something about the 883r talks to me.....

On a slow day, the XR12 would find its way onto my list. But having owned a Buell, it's be down on the list.

Stop posting the '14 red pix. If I'd seen one of those before I found my '07 this spring, there might have been payments...
