If I had that kind of money to burn, it'd probably go to the 950SM. But those are sweet too.

I'm sure it's worth it, just don't have that kind of cash to spend on a bike at the moment.

But I'd opt to satisfy the hidden hooligan inside me with a similarly priced 950SM. Ideally both bikes would be parked in my garage that would make Leno's look like an amature garage, but we can all dream, right?

My mate has one (posted some vids of it at a trackday earlier in the year :confused ) and it ain't got the go of a TL (that 118 is very optimistic according to the dyno...) ....... mine would stomp all over under power :devious ,,, and they feel a bit odd to sit on too - very tall and narrow, quite trail-bikey even :dowhat

The other thing is the styling is a love it or hate it thing (I veer to the latter) but that white black version certainly does have some appeal :devious :)

:bash :fooku The super duke is a ROAD bike, the SM is the SM :dowhat :coocoo :laugh :laugh (though, to be fair, the duke, the SM and the enduro thing all seem to share basically similar chassis, relying on the suspenders and tyres to signify their intended purposes :confused :laugh ) :)

Seat height is 33.7 at the lowest setting:) Looks like i'll be looking for a cut down seat, or that can be my first mod!
