    Yes it went to a new home about a year ago. I loved having it and regret having to sell it but I couldn't afford to have it as a second bike and as an 'only bike' it was too focused. If I had access to a good suspension shop in Portugal I might have kept it. The exclusivity of the HP is a big attraction, so much so I Uhmmed and Ahhed a long time between getting the multi and a lovely used HP sport. But the deal I have in getting the multi was just too tempting.

    KTM SMT?

    Today I'm lusting after an R1. I know of one for sale, cheap. The story is, it has cosmetic damage. An angry x girlfriend smashed up the front and rear fairings with a hammer and used a broken whiskey bottle to scratch the hell out of the gas tank. The jiffy marker came off rather well.

    Why do I want it? I figure it would go good on ice. :evil

    Woot! would love to see pics of that smashed her upper for sale. Just curious to see how bad things really got. He must have done some shady shi*.

    On the Super duke topic. I loved it. Then I rode the 990SMT and loved it even more.

    Screen and a decent tank range! Killer bike for sure.

    Also would like something that you have to push-start.

    How come they wouldn't bring it to the US?!?!?! It would compete head-on with the Diavel and would beat it (for me) in a heartbeat!

    Diavel? Ahhhh.....no. This Yamaha is maybe making 50 or so horsepower and I know it's not about horsepower but this competes more with a.....a.....well, nothing.

    Suzuki VX800 maybe?

    Just picked up an SMT. Not sure I want to devote funds to a smashed up R1 when there are nice pegs to buy, slip ons, etc to find for the 990.

    Umm, yeah, it's not even close, but a great bike anyways.

    Would like a BMW R1200GS adventure, just because of their look :-D
    But it's way too big for me. :-(

    I guess I'll stick with my Transalp.

    why wait? get new-old stock. let someone else eat the depreciation. i'll be bold and say there's no differences between 2012/2013 model years.
