Bike chooser: Leftfield middleweight nakeds

This week's bike chooser brings to you the best budget naked middleweights that money can buy.   These bikes are great if you are looking for a fun bike on a budget and great for touring and commuting alike. They offer a good compromise between practicality and performance, plus are cheaper to insure than a sportsbike. Here are some of MCN’s favourites:   2006...

Swap the bars!

The Speed Four is a hidden flawed gem, but the same bike with the readily available LSL "superbike" bar conversion kit is an absolutely cracking deal. It adds comfort and makes the already stunning handling even more fun. I've been using mine for everything from short commutes in heavy traffic to country lane cruising to motorway blasts, and with soft luggage and a little fly-screen it's an incredibly capable all-rounder. I'll be hanging on to it as long as I can, unless I find something as good with better fuel economy.

I had a Speed Four for seven years and loved it.  Did 28000 miles on mine.  It wasn't the best riding position for riding long distance but the sound of the engine screaming away when having fun was great!

I get fed up about people talking about the fueling issue.  It has a slight 'issue' about 2700RPM which you don't notice unless you're riding around that rev range, which to be honest isn't often and you could ride so that you didn't even have the problem.  I laughed the other year when MCN spent quite abit of money trying to sort it out with a new exhaust and then a power commander to fix an issue that really isn't an issue.

I would certainly recomend a Speed Four if someone was interested and there aren't many around so it stands out.
