2007 S2R 1000, full Termis, new ECU and tune with the pipes.



It makes me do this:
This, IMHO, is the best of the Monster line, ever. It has all the style, and is a very balanced machine -- everything works together just right.

The more I look at Tallboy's bike, the more I like it. You gonna ride it to PIE FEST this year instead of the big yellow GS? I know it won't be as comfortable, but I can spot you a tent and sleeping bag while you are here God knows I never get to use them...
If you haven't figured it out yet, I don't plan very far ahead. I'll let you know about a week before if I'll be coming to PIEfest and I'll probably decide that morning what I'll ride.

The S2R 1000 with termis is the #1 sound I heard from a motorcycle.
#2 was Aprilia Tuono with Akrapovic exhaust.

There's no #3 yet.

Oh, he does suck...I just didn't realize you knew him....

You haven't heard an S2R with Arrows yet then...

I got zero emotions for that bike, but seriously, with Akrapovic exhaust,
it's amazing.

SV1000 too!

Agreed. It's an appliance otherwise.
I was thinking TL1000 but must be about the same right?
There is nothing like a "Sporting" twin for sound.

Yeah, that'll do.

On the other hand, on a bike like a bandit 1250.. I'd leave it stock and enjoy not
hearing anything. I just like meaty thumping on a big 1-2cyl bikes.

Am I normal?

Big Bandit is all about smooth torque, and they are cheap. It's my ride to work so the Duck doesn't have to sit out all summer long.

Cheap is relative when you live in a 3rd world country..

I agree on the great sounding thumpers and sporting twins!

Quiet bikes and a few good sounding 4cyl bikes can sound good too. BUT, there is just something about every damn Ducati that I hear, that makes me stop and listen. I only wish my new monster had a dry clutch. Why? So I could piss off my brother-in-law on his HD
