Which naked nutter bike are you most looking forward to?

With the debut of the KTM 1290 Super Duke R, the first of this summer's naked nutter bikes has broken free. It's soon to be followed by a new Z1000 from Kawasaki, an update to the original naked nutter, Aprilia's Tuono, a new Ducati Monster with the 1198 engine, and BMW's fabled naked S1000RR. But with so many to choose from, which...

All of them!

Some serious naked bikes coming out this coming year. From spy shots and rumoured specifications all five of these bikes are going to be insane! I cant pick between them but my liking currently goes to the Z1000. Loe the looks!

Test rides

 Out of those 5 bikes, 4 will be available for test rides in the shop I work in and I will have the terrible job of putting a few miles on them before the public gets set loose - life is tough at work sometimes ..........

I would

love the Duke. It's mental with so much torque it could probably break the road surface.


I might see what my insurance company says about it... I wonder if it'll have the anti-lowside ABS on it.

Always been a naked bike fan - been riding for 20+ years and only got my first bike with fairing last year (RSV4 factory) - just scored myself an 1100 Hypermotard as well so ive got the best of both worlds - while it'll be nice to see the new stuff im happy with what ive got!

 I hate to say this, but none of them. Not where we have weather and speed limits and other road users.

Have to agree

 There are loads of bikes that will easily crack 100mph (about the comfortable physical limit of these naked bikes) and handle well too. These look lovely but they're not what I'd use every day and it's a lot of money to have parked in the garage/driveway/street waiting for a nice day off. My CB1300 does the job for a fraction of the price and doesn't look too silly with its Givi box on the back for my sandwiches, flask and inflatable armchair.

How about the Triumph?

 How about Triumph's new Speed Triple? Any news?

I 've been waiting for the new monster since the last RS model. 

I wonder how the new monster will affect the rest Ducati range. How can a watercooled Monster

fit in with the streetfighter 848. Is this the end of the big streetfighters?

New Speed triple

NONE OF THE ABOVE

Agree dag110

The speedy set the bench mark and now triumph must deliver a better hooligan tool just like the 955i

was .

The 1050 has got a bit dull in the grunt department , cant fault the handling though

Trumpet?

had a test ride of the speed triple r last year and was shocked at how anodyne it was - it's a superb bike, but it just didn't light my fire.

which is why i bought a Diavel instead.
