aehewitt....

you're letting yourself be swayed by 'looks' again.....so let's see.....more 'involving'?
visits to the filling station?
road side repairs?
visits to a chiropractor?
copious amounts of voltarol?
explaining yourself  to coppers?:biggrin:

...and others.I wasn't singling out the Honda for the 'thirst'. like you say they all do it.That's probably why most of the ones like  the Varedero have a 22 litre tank.The trouble with V-twins is they carry weight high up so they fit small tanks to try and keep weight down.Honda had the best idea with the Goldwing. tank under seat and flat four engine.

i've had both

well, i had the sp2, there is not a great deal of difference in both to ride, i prefered the sp2, it was a bit more involving to ride and more rewarding when ridden right, sp2 looked better than rsv, had great build quality and a side stand and back brake that actually worked, sp2 was snatchy on fuelling too but a pair of blue flame cans transformed the fuelling and dramatically cut down the snatchy ride (in traffic) but both are uncomprimised sports bikes so you have to accept that comfort and ergonomics play second fiddle to performance and handling. tank range/size was never a deciding factor for me with regards to sports bikes.... buy an sp.... i'd have another.
