It probably won't be slower on the road for the average rider.

Not gonna happen unless the bring back the f800r in some new form. I can't see them selling a ton of those with the S1000R on the floor, at least in the US

I doubt it - the RSV4 always does pretty well against the S1000RR in comparison tests, and I'd expect the same in the naked bike class.
Sure, Aprilia has more competition now from BMW, Ducati, and KTM, but I think that will only increase the popularity of the class, and Aprilia will still benefit.

I like it in blue. Less likely to get a speeding ticket.

I really want to like the bikes in this class. I mean, the 1290, Tuono, Z1000, S1000R they are all just stupendously good bikes (from what I understand, I've only had the chance to ride the Z1K)

But, dear Lordy, they are all some ugly ass bikes in my opinion... The KTM isn't bad, but the others are honestly pretty bad. I don't like ugly cars, bikes, or women. (can't quite figure out why I have a Vstrom)

When you realize what they are capable of, they get a bit more attractive. Kinda like a homely girl who's a monster in the sack.

Does anybody agree with me on this? I really like and respect all of these bikes, but for me the only one to visually do it for me is the Monster 1200.

What say you fellas about the looks of this bikes and others?

I personally like all of those bikes, the KTM, the BMW, the Tuono and the new Z1K, I don't think they're ugly at all, I like the looks of them all, Each one is unique in its own way, and if you're going to be pointing out naked bikes, you can't forget the Brutale (I want one like yesterday) .




But then again, I'm VERY EASY to please when it comes to motorcycles, I ride on the street and let's face it, 100+ Horsepower on the street is way more then enough, but then again what would I know, I'm happy with my 90 HP 78ft pound of Torque Guzzi.

Carefull there a lot of them have different offsets, so you can't mix upper and lower triples, the 675 and Streets for example.

The only thing that looks out of place is the underbelly exhaust canister. I'd have to go with a different full exhaust to get rid of the big round can underneath.

I forgot about the Brutale. That bike is truly a work of art. It is achingly beautiful.

Been considering this kit for mine. Comes with front brake line extension and looks easy to install

I like the BMW (especially in blue). The KTM is a bit too weird-looking and flashy for me. The RSV4 is good looking in black, less so in other colors.


I think that sporty bikes (naked or not) that look too flashy are just asking for the wrong kind of attention.


Then again I think the K1300R looks good.
