Diavel? Ahhhh.....no. This Yamaha is maybe making 50 or so horsepower and I know it's not about horsepower but this competes more with a.....a.....well, nothing.

Suzuki VX800 maybe?

Just picked up an SMT. Not sure I want to devote funds to a smashed up R1 when there are nice pegs to buy, slip ons, etc to find for the 990.

Would like a BMW R1200GS adventure, just because of their look :-D
But it's way too big for me. :-(

I guess I'll stick with my Transalp.

why wait? get new-old stock. let someone else eat the depreciation. i'll be bold and say there's no differences between 2012/2013 model years.

the latest incarnation (2011 and on) of the ninja 1000 has always been FI. ABS? been riding over 100 years without it. what's a few more.

you may be thinking of the 250R replacement, the ninja 300 it's the one that recently got FI & optional ABS in all markets, where the 250R had FI pretty much everywhere but in the USA for the past few years.

The difference is the color. Don't want the black/silver or black/green. Not liking the color combo has been what has held me from pulling the trigger since they came out in 2011. Im NOT going to drop $10K + on anything and wish it was something different. I'm REALLY digging the white/black (AND, it has ALL black frame/swing arm/etc that no other N1K has had to this point). And I do not want a bike with ABS.

Great bike? Maybe... all of my European friends who have ridden it have declared (and I quote) "one of the worst bikes ever." MCN seems to agree:

Quote:
Owners love their Yamaha BT1100 Bulldogs. Everyone else hates em. Depending on your point of view the Yamaha BT1100 Bulldog is either a relaxing, better-braked alternative to a cruiser, rather like a Japanese version of a Moto Guzzi Breva (that wont break down), or its an ill-handling, gutless chump of a thing that would sooner dump you on your backside than take a right-hander with any kind of vigour.
