Make mine the 1078rr

Here are a couple of good writeups on naked bikes. For me the 1078 sounds much better than the B-King but to each his own.

I like it a lot. Too bad I'll never be able to afford it.

As much as I like the Italian stuff, there isnt much desire on my part for a new MV - Same old boring motor configuration , same brake and suspension stuff , granted , they do look very good - just not sexy enough to plunk down the cash.
Id much rather do the B King - or even better, just keep the Tuono !

Let me clarify --- When looking at Italian bikes, the MVs just dont have that sex appeal like , hmm, a Ducati 916 / Aprilia Tuono ( I had to ,hehe )or even a monster .It inst a bad looking bike, it just doesnt have that flair to it like some other bikes from that wonderful country.

I agree, the B King is not hot - Kind of reminds me of a tank or transformer , but, I kind of like that rough almost farming equipment look to it. It looks like you could have articles of clothing sucked in the intake snorkle things or put an eye out on the mufflers , it just looks like something you could get hurt just climbing on ---

Aprillia and Moto Guzzi do it for me. I don't like Ducks but wouldn't mind thrashing a MV. When it comes to what I would own make mine Japanese.
