an SV1000 would be cool, I don't think they make TL1000's anymore do they? only TL1000R's plus the rotary damper suspension is odd. The 919 is definatly sharp but more paint options and adjustable suspension would be nice, I'm happy with my '01 Bandit S, but hot temps aren't an issue in Tacoma, cold and rain 8 mos out of the year make some kind of fairing nice, and air-cooling works just fine. I like nekkid bikes because you get sport bike performance, comfy ergo's and being able to see the motor, instead of being covered up in plastic. The valve adjustment on a ducati would put me off too, but I could live with a speed triple.
