This thing is bound to get me in trouble one day

but that is what lawyers are for, I suppose. It gives me a big-time grin every time I hop on it.

I LOVE that generation of Tuono, but I find it "funny" that it is the least naked of the naked bikes. Honestly, you can't see much more of it than on RSV.

Yes! she will cruise at 70mph all day long and not wimper. (gearing changed from stock of course)

It's got an add on windshield but, it's just as "naked" as many of the 1/4 fairing Bikes I'm seeing here sooo....

Definition appears to be a problem here. In my book, "naked" is a sport bike without fairings. Not NOT a standard bike. But that's me.

The naked bike is the bourgeois version of the infamous French (and Belgium?) 'broke-bikes'. Kids would find smashed up bikes in junk yards and re-assemble them -- looking like glued and taped together rat-shit -- and crown the monster with one or better yet a pair of 2 CV car headlights. Theoretically, however, you can only have a naked bike if there is a non-naked version of it. So the naked version of the K1200S is the K1200R. Etc.

Personally I don't like the phrase "naked bike" it comes from Japan and is used to talk about un-faired sporty bikes
That aren't sport bikes but aren't "standard" bikes.
But that have a better quality build then streetfighter or rat bike.

It's not very good at accurately describing the micro-segment.

Oh and I ride a Honda 919,

The fact that she's naked creates a love hate relationship between us...

Oh and I ride a Honda 919,
The Naked Bike, like the Chopper has redefined itself to suit the market place. Again, originally you took a perfectly normal, completely faired bike and trashed all the fiber glass until you got it naked. But, you -- as a purist -- had to start with a fully "clothed" bike and do it yourself. It was supposed to be ugly. This required work and ingenuity, but like all "rad" things it caught on with the public. So, manufacturers started providing the ready to wear naked versions of their clothed bikes (again the K1200S > K1200R). The next step was to skip the phoney "stripping" of a clothed bike and just make a ready-to-ride "naked bike" for the consumer (Speed Triple is a perfect example -- with the dual headlights probably influenced by the dual 2cv headlights on the Euro "broke-bike" scene). The next step was for everyone to say "hey, my bike doesn't have a fairing it must be naked!" Which is fair.

The chopper was, of course, a full dresser HD that you chopped all the shit off to reduce weight. A GIANT naked bike!

Cool! Since Suzuki sells a version of this over seas that has a mini-fairing and even scooter-like floorboard curtains, it fits right in. L.O.L. (since there's a mini "dresser" version offered)
...kinda like when guys were fitting their 1/4 and 1/2 faired bikes into the UJM thread some time ago.
