There is a new Tuono V4 but most of them are twins.

Marquez is a hell of a rider. Rossi is a hell of a racer.

Yup, I worked on a 2012 v4r. All stock, I just added case covers and added frame sliders, coolant change and oil. Sounded pretty good, angry.

I agree Moe, and I don't have any idea why it felt so awkward to me to be honest..it just does.

I have no idea why I am sensitive to the ergos of the triumph, though I don't find the 600RR to be as comfortable to me as the 1098/1198 either.

@ http://cycle-ergo.com/, they say the Triumph has a Knee Angle of 78/Forward Lean of 45 for my height/inseam.

The 600RR, 79/43

Then the 1198..lol 78/47, same Knee Angle as the Triumph, though most forward lean of all and I find it comfortable. There is very little pressure on my wrist and my core is very strong, so I think it really comes down to my hip position in the saddle.

Though like I said, the high knee/hip felt more aggressive on the 675R than the 1198 I was looking into/demo'ing.

They changed the ergos of the S1KRR and Kawi ZX10R, those both feel much better to me in 2012 form than previous models. I know what I like, it is just difficult choosing when there are so many I like..lol

You're welcome mang!

Another thing we did at the DPG was graph a verticle/horizontal line at the pegs, and another at the triple tree. Then plot points where we would like to have more or less -/+ adjustment for rider comfort. You can really pin point your ergos and basically make any bike feel as comfortable in the saddle as the one you liked with adjusting rear sets, clip ons and triple trees.

You can literally spend hours at that site..lol

I love these bikes but I don't know if I could own one. This may seem like a stupid reason but the gas mileage is pretty bad on these bikes. I'm just worried that I would be on a good mountain road, get carried away and not find a gas station after 200 miles of spirited riding. I know it's petty but some reviews have it pegged at less than 30 mpg under those conditions. At a 3.75 gallons of fuel, that's not gonna last me very far.

The amount of misinformation here is saddening.

From just sitting on an 848, it is definitely more stretched out that the CBR. I don't know how comfortable that would be for a shorter rider on the street. I was considering picking up an 848 for a bit. Go for it if you want it over the CBR.

I think I'm going to hold off on the 848 and just keep with my CBR for now. When I get back from my next deployment I think I'll probably be upgrading though. Thanks for all the opinions guys, I appreciate it.

Thank God, I am hopeful again. Thanks Moeman, guess you just have to try riding it yourself to decide if it's for you.

848 or 600RR?

You're kidding right?

If you can afford it, pick the Ducati and don't look back.

You are welcome bro visit this link that CT posted http://cycle-ergo.com/ in your dimensions and try out different bikes and how much the reach and seating position will vary . It's a very cool web thanks to CT for sharing it

Don't forget you can change the clip-ons as well to give your bike some more personalization and cater it to your riding style/comfort. Hell, you can make these bikes ride like a sport touring bike if that's what you want.
