Only have two heat cycles into break-in. But, contrary to what I had read about the 1000's about abrupt throttle off of idle, the fueling is very smooth. Much smoother than my Brutale. Brakes are great, much better than the Nissins on the Brutale, and better feel than on my '05 999s. Tall seat.

That's interesting. Does anyone know if the US spec bikes have a less intrusive emission setting than the EU bikes?

How does it compare in other aspects to your 999s?

Those pictures are making me say red or black again!!

I ordered the black one thinking I don't like the red anymore but you have me thinking I may need to call the dealership and make a change in color. I loved the older ones in red but in most pictures it just didn't look the same. Maybe change is hard sometimes. Great looking bike by the way good luck

The way the new red graphics are placed, it looks like you could easily make it look like the old red buy just getting a silver fairing and a red front fender. Then the original bodywork would be safe and you would have your desired original silver/red MV.

Very slick and crisp looking! Congrats!!

Amazing subtle changes in the graphics how they take the red on the front fender and match it to the new red section on the side fairing!! Very subtle!

Amazing how it still looks good after nearly 10 years of only subtle/minor changes!!

Ive always said being a design teacher that that is what good design is all about - ...'the ability to design something that will still look good in 20 years...'
