these wheelie really well.
165 hp might be a bit on the wimpy side, for sure, but the '16 S1000R is still a fairly potent machine with a lot of hooligan potential if that's what's asked of it.
I didn't have mine very long, but it was an impressive bike, but for some reason that I can't explain, I just didn't 'bond' with it, even though it was a far better motorcycle than I was capable of extracting it's performance potential from. I would think that the FZ-09 would probably offer the best 'bang for the buck' of those that the OP mentioned.
Performance aside, that poor Triumph looks like it's trying to go in five directions at once. I love Triumph bikes, and do own one but, dear Lord, that bike is a visual disaster.
I went with the Indian FTR Carbon 2022 - it is a looker first and performance a close second
From your list I’d take the MT, but there is also a new Suzuki coming out in a few days.
Go with the Brutale if you are a bit on the smaller side. They are fairly compact bikes and will fulfill your wheelie needs.
Triumph Speed Twin ?
I got lucky in the autumn getting the last 2020 Roadster available, and only then because someone’s deal fell through. The model isn’t in the 2021 lineup and once again there’s nothing in the HD showroom which appeals to me. Sportsters in general appear doomed from an enviro standpoint and even the name itself is now phased out in favour of “Street”.
With health matters it could be my last motorcycle now in my 44th year of riding, although I can see closing out the hobby of love down the road with something lighter that’s still highway capable. The Duke 390 comes to mind.
My preferanse changed when i started to try bikes,
I ended up wanting more comfor than hoonigan and after i tested the bmw s1000r i absolutely fell in love. Great suspension, great engine quick shift, cruise control and superb ride position for me.
I really appreciate all the information and advice I got from all of you, only reason that I tested the bmw was backlund comment:)
Sorry for my bad english, but hopefully you understand.
Good summer and ride safe :)
Fun bikes for sure. That's a solid choice. Enjoy!
Im thinking its your taste thats dated or off the mark.
