well took it home today, been round the city and to the coast, much better feeling confidence wise with this version over the "R" version, brakes are nicer and theres less urgency to want to wheelie all over, only thing i noticed is ya have to ride it in a lower gear for certain conditions than ya normally would as it feels laboured doing 30 in 4th gear so its better in 3rd i feel, but plenty time to get to know it better![/QUOTE]

Enjoy! Can you spare a minute of riding bliss to comment on the riding position / windblast / riding for more than an hour situation. The 'wheelie" thing you mention? the motors are same, is it the suspension that makes the diff?
cheers graeme

riding position is ok, might need to change position of left controls slightly as the indicator is a bit of a reach and ya press the horn sometimes, wind blast is like any other nakid, spose it depends on lid ya wearing but seemed fine maybe just the odd ocillation in the shoulders sometimes but didnt bother me, seats ok for hour blasts av sat on worse the wheelie thing is down to the "R" version havin a 16 tooth sprocket on the front the s version has a 17, and the brakes are nicer for everyday riding, the R has super ship anchor brakes, but there changin the compound apperently on the new bikes to a softer version i been told!

Husqvarna do offer less agressive pads for the R.

Hi all...

Dezzie, your mount looks great, the sliders blend well, tail tidy is sharp, would love to see a pic of your rad guard, who you get the accessories from..?

Yesterday i went into my local Guzzi dealer, to test ride a new 1200 sport, got 2 hours country riding on her, and really enjoyed trying out the latest 8v motor...
Anyways, he happens to be a Huski dealer to, and after chatting about the Guzzi, i was on my way out the door, heading home, and spotted something shiny with bling on it outta the corner of my eye in the yard...
Stopped for a look, as ya do, whats this i call back at him, so he comes out, keen to tell me about his new personal toy...

NudaR... Hmmmmmm i thought, looking around it, tasty bits, sharp styling, power and weight sound bloody HOT... Even reasonably priced if one compares with the likes of a Duc and some other brands...
Some years ago, like 10, i had a KTM Super Duke 640 for a while, and apart from the viby motor, was a total blast, and this reminded me of those times, next thing i know, he is telling me i need to take it for a spin, so still kitted up from my ride, i figure im here and ready...

This dealer is in a small country town, so only 2 mins riding and one is in the country back roads, windy lanes, and free from those that like to spoil our fun...
Now he was quick to point out he had done a track day last weekend, suspension firmer, front brakes vicious, twobrothers pipe open an LOUD, hmmmmmm, well excited i climbed abroad an headed off...
Tall, Very Loud, and super responsive would be first thoughts, i filtered out of the village, wow this thing is very tractable, and good mannered, easy to ride in the town environment Im thinking, then i hit the country road, gave it a hand full, and off we went, Faark, noise and lots of action going on... The motor pulls like a train, much smoother than i expected, and revs quick, front wheel had air, not intentionally, but it did...
Out the straight road, then off onto windy lanes, easy to ride fast or slow, very tractable, surprisingly comfortable, Im 6ft tall, wind blast wasn't a issue, seemed clean air on my Arai, and up to 160 kph i found it good, didn't go any faster than that, Super Duke 640 on steroids Im thinking, after blasting around for 30 mins, i headed back, and i must say i didn't really want to give it back, i was so impressed, just the perfect fun toy on 2 wheels...

Now Im not normally into super sharp edgy styling, but in the flesh this thing looks HOT, the Business, and the quality of fit and finish, the bling, all added up to make a beautiful beast...
If you get the chance to look one over, do so, if you get the chance to grab a ride, well enjoy...
For me, Im looking at the add on options, and thinking i need to own one...

The RG rad guard is just a rock screen? What about the rad tanks? They look terribly vulnerable....like a minor parking lot drop at the gas pumps might end up with a damaged rad that might keep you from riding home.
Someone's gotta make up some kinda guard for that.

It is my understanding that it will not pass emissions testing in it's current state of tune plus the fact that naked bikes don't sell well in the USA.
