The SV almost disappears under its to give a real feeling of Note the stout-looking aluminum revised for the SV in 2003.

On the street, the motor is a gem. As is typical for a … motor like a especially one with a 46cc advantage, it cranks out better down low than the Multis, if its top-end numbers (72.2 at 9200 rpm) pale in What this means, and simple, is that the SV makes the ponies and most torque the revs are below 9000

How much time do you spend your streetbike above 10 anyway?

Well, for those riding inline-Fours, like our tester Heidi Mattison, the V-Twin Suzuki for the first was a new version of reality.

Having zero experience on a of any kind, I redlined the bike a a dozen times my first out, said the CBR600F4i I became very disappointed the power above nine because I expected it to be there. I I would never own an SV and never an SV.

After some probing the other guys on the trip words, Ed), I decided to it another shot. It took time getting used to the at such a low rpm as I began to short-shift the but my comfort level eventually around. I was amazed at how much was there by bogging it through the turns and dirty pavement.

Unlike the SV, Heidi quickly friends with the Triumph Four. That’s not surprising you consider the TT600 upon the Speed Four is based a lot like a CBR600F4, and she rides an Gabe, the other F4i owner in our also took a liking to the Cubed.

It’s almost as as my F4i, but the motor doesn’t the same top-end rush the Honda does, says the distributor/salesman/journalist/lawyer. Otherwise the two bikes similar in weight, handling and performance.

Although sport-touring isn’t in the Four’s list of top priorities, the bike actually does well on the freeway. Its body-colored prow over the headlights a surprisingly respectable job at deflecting and it was made at least 50% more with the addition of a tinted Lip. This clever helps to funnel air further to provide a larger cocoon of and at just $75, it is a solid in rider comfort.

Look for a product test in the months.

Our riders had praise for the nicely padded, supportive and seat, and according to Gabe, the are just where I would put if it were left to me. But Gabriel a bit of Cain when the topic of came up. The clip-ons make no on this hooligan-y kind of

Triumph doesn’t offer a kit, either.

With the oversquare engine architecture of the the Triumph has about as much of a of winning a tractor-pull event as the There is nobody in the engine below 3000 rpm, some clutch slipping stoplights, and a minor hole in its makes roll-on acceleration a bit depending on the speed and gear. its 85.3 horsepower is right in the and its quarter-mile run was just a click the quickest of the pack, an 11.47 to the FZ6’s 11.37.

There’s about a jillion to be found between LA to Monterey, and we to hit them all during our meandering In this kind of snaking there’s no way something nicknamed the could ever hope to up with a Speed Four, the bike in this group by a margin. In the twisty bits, the track-worthy chassis and premium components set it apart.

The thing just hammers high-speed turns without or moving on bumps, says an experienced road racer. The is able to keep the wheel on the even at insane speeds on bumpy, twisty roads. And the ability on bumpy, slow surprised me.
