good concept, but it just seems to me like an uglier version of a TL1000S. I would buy a TLS before this bike any day of the week.

I think the steering geometry and seating is more relaxed. A more comfortable street ride and possible better for hooliganism. BTW, IMO the Terrible Lizard in the used market is a steal. Since they never took off (despite being a good bike), there is no resale value on them and can be bought for a song.

Being an old man of 44, I tend to like the Naked sportbike class. Little more relaxed, everything is out in the open to see and appreciate. People are getting a lot of bang for the buck when it comes to CC's.

The best thing about a nekid bike is that with many insurance agents, if it doesn't LOOK like a sportbike, then it isn't a sportbike. I'm no longer with the agent that used that as a criteria.:bs

I agree, the resale on the TLS is horrid. Thats why if it was my money I would rather get a TLS, strip off the plastic and put some bar risers on it. not only would I save a ton of money but I would have a very unique bike, that is a total hooligan special. I've been thinking about doing this for quite some time.

Truth be told...I'm eyeing the SV1000 for a Spring '03 purchase. I miss having a naked V-twin and I think that SV1000 would make a good second bike. In a perfect world, I'd get that new Monster 1000, but I'm to tall for the Ducati Monster :(

I wish that the SV1000, came in black, too.
