    The 1200 has plenty of character - it just won't cook your gear on the back now. :D

    Currently on Ebay.

    I had a 748 of the same vintage and color that I bought new. Broke it in on the BRP after vanning it brand new to WNC.
    I'm just not sure my knees could handle it anymore. :bluduh

    might make the move on a low mileage Nightster I went to see last week. But I also have to travel this week, so "Want" might be the beginning and end of that.

    I "want" this - it is paid for and sitting in the dealership 100miles away. I have Friday off - then it will move to "What bike did you just buy" :D

    The 2021 Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 base model…. More like a GT model…

    I thought I wanted a Ducati Supersport but then the Aprilia RS 660 comes along and kicks its ass as a relaxed sport bike. Now along comes Yamaha's R7 as the budget alternative.

    Add maybe a taller windscreen and bags and you have a great midweight sport touring bike.

    What to do?

    Aprilia makes the 'angry bird look' look good.

    Kind of a minimalist bagger. I like the look.

    I keep coming back to the CSC RE3/SG400. It comes in gray or black, but for $349 more you can get red, blue, or silver. I really, REALLY hope this is the blue CSC gets. Because I might have to buy one if it is...

    I test rode a new one of those on the road, only for 15 or so km, and it was a very comfy fit but I reckon they've been superseded by a few generations of ADV bike since, mostly in the weight and suspension depts. Still I wouldn't knock one back if someone was giving it away for free.

    Nice looks, but pity that it suffers from bloat.
    At 417lbs it weighs the same as an MT09.
    And the Kaw 400 makes moar hp with less pork (364lbs curb) at the same price point.:dunno
