The street is an insanely cool bike but there are rarely any for sale around here. This is the only one:

It's a matter of taste on the exhaust. Me and a lot of people think it looks nice in the flesh. And a lot of other people think it looks crazy.

I don't mind the looks at all, it's stinking like exhaust that's the problem.

Now I feel like a derp. I thought you meant you didn't like the Z1000 exhaust.


Well, at least I'm pretty, even if I'm not smart.

I`ve heard of the exhaust issue on the 919 before, but don't seem to have that problem with mine. Probably because I can`t seem to go slow enough on it for the exhaust to collect on me.

I think its a myth that the VT gives more torque down low then a IL4.
Its all about how the engine was constructed. Try a CB1000R, it will pull hard from 2000rpm and up, power from the get go in every gear.

The twin will start lifting the front wheel around 4,000 RPMs. A 4 sure as hell won't. Not without clutching it.

it would be tough to keep it under $5K but this is a slam dunk for the Speed Triple.
I had an SV1K for a few years and I liked it but could never get settled on actually enjoying the bike. It was beautiful but a lot of the hardware they used to make it, is crap. The stock suspension is horrible....one time I got the fuel light to come on at SEVENTY-FIVE MILES.
The frame and engine are wonderful but there are all these hurdles around those two. I bought a Speed Triple last year and have loved it!! I got mine for $6k with LOTS of extras so there might be some out there in your price range.
Comfortable, lots of power, lots of torque, incredible sound, great brakes.....

It depends on tuning, the 919 is very mild, so it does have good low end for a 4.
Here is a chart with the SV, Tuono, and Z1000 and you can see the SV has the most down low, while the Z has a little more on top. And below the 919, it is strong on the bottom, but down on power compared to the other 3. It even has a lower peak torque rpm than the SV, but not as much torque down low. Below 4500 (actually below 8k!), the SV is king, I can barely keep my front wheel down across intersections!? :)

CB1000R, after what some think only a v-twin could have the torque lines like this.

Yes, like I said, it depends on tuning. The CB1k does have torque like a v-twin, but no longer has HP like a 1 liter 4 cylinder. In fact, it doesn't even have as much as my SV!? But it's still much wider!
