I agree the harly is a v twin but it does not fit in with the rest and I personally miss the aprilia RSV Mille Factory R in the list but i gues the Tuno is more or less the same just withou fairing.

i had an sv1000s which was an amazing machine.

used it for work everyday and it handled beautifully,had plenty of power and was up there with the best of them.

Out of all mcn have put in the ten top the ktm superduke has to be number 1.its just an amazing machine to ride.

RSV4 Tuono

I was in Italy for the GP and went upto Noale to the Aprilia headquarters. Spoke to the guy in charge of the tuono project. The bike didn't handle as unfaired so they have had to change the stearing head angle. !cm lower seat, taken a small amount of power off the top end "chewed him a strip off for that" Big news though is the seat, pegs and handle bar grips are the same distance apart as the current tuonos...... First showing will be this november on sale next april. R model first and factory later.... They promice it kicks the ass of every naked bike on the market.... its taken this long because they want it to be a huge leap forward.. they're excited about it, and so should we be.... :)

adventure bikes!

Africa Twin ... KTM 950 Adventure ... Transalp ... Cagiva Elefant.

Adventure bikes make the best V-twins and V-twins make the best adventure bikes.

I liked the 1098 at first but now I just think it looks Jappy. The only thing it's really got going for it is that it looks better than its god-awful predeccesor.

Can't believe the Electra Glide made the list - what the hell were people thinking?
