Agree with Bumpkin. I rented a Super Duke 1290 from Allround in Frankfurt through ten passes to Florence a few weeks ago and the power was much stronger than the TVL. For solo riding I think I like the TVL better, but for long hauls with luggage and a pillion, the litre bikes are better.

I'm a little puzzled by all of the comments about the quickshifter and and the various recommendations concerning the best technique to use etc. With mine, I just accelerate hard and flick through the gears whilst continuing to apply the power. And when I do this, the gear change is silky smooth and effortless. No half-throttle, no slackening off - just keep applying the power.
In my experience, the QS makes an enormous difference to the feel of the bike. Being able to change gears without any deceleration makes the bike feel so much quicker. I think the QS is great and so, if it's not working properly, you really need to get it fixed.
I tend not to use it so much when down-shifting because, usually, I down-shift because I'm slowing down but, when I have tried it, it's worked smoothly without any problem.

That is exactly my experience too. Works great for me! The bike as a whole has been great. Warranty change of the front turn signals and a spongey rear brake early on. Nothing else since.

A lot of people do not understand the quick shifter....it is only meant for "on throttle under load" use. Or closed throttle under decel load downshift.

If the rider backs off when shifting, or shifts under no load cruise, or tries to blip throttle on downshifts it won't work properly. The QS is for going fast. If you are cruising around you should use the clutch and shift normally.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
