My problem is I like them all.

Ya know, new vs new, that Duc is the same money as the Kawie, if I'm not mistaken.

Ducati have wet clutches. Valve adjustments keep getting longer. They're almost a normal bike!
Totally different bikes though.
Not an either or, more of an instead of in my mind.
The Duc' would be a funner ride I'd think.
The Kawi' would be enjoyable.
Not quite the same things.

Here, Sniper, have a nice relaxing read and enjoy the pic of the KTM.

Got any holiday time coming up?
Good reading.
It also underscores the practicality of the UJM concept, which was really an evolution of the typical British "Roadster" or it's "Club" variant.
We need a new term though, as "J" no longer has the corner on it, and hasn't for ages.
But UMs sounds kinda lame.
Anyone got a better sounding term?
UniEmms perhaps?

I never liked the term Naked.

Standard sounds pretty drab.

Streetfighter is ok, but could we lose the anger and violence?

Motard, nope.

Super Moto? Super is way over used.

I just call em Handlebar bikes. Not very descriptive, and somewhat clumsy.
