I was completely uncomfortable on the Sport 1000 but the S2R felt great.

Ok, adding to the equation, I sat on a Buell CityX a few days ago and loved that position too.  I would love to get a test ride on an XB12s once the weather warms and then make a decision between that and the S2r1k.

Any comments on those two?

S4Rs all the way. The only downside is the shorter range. Otherwise the bike is almost as fun as a bucket of dollar bills in a room full of strippers

You mean fun for the 'rippers since they'd laugh so hard when you showed them *dollar* bills.  Smile

I don't understand, you want a bike that will carve-up the twisties, but place an emphasis on comfort.  Headscratch Make-up you mind man, it's always a compromise. Choose a preference/priority, and let that be your guide.  Thumbsup

The S4R received glowing reviews all year in all of the mags.  That's the one I would chose.

This weekend I got the chance to ride a S4RS at my local dealer.  

Personally the LOOKS of the Sport 1000 are the most appealing, but I don't think I could do 400 miles a day on it.

TIA


I love the looks of the Sport 1000 but considered the GT1000 for the ergos.  I hear that for 2007 or 08 the Sport 1000 comes BiPosto with pipes on either side and ST3 style clip-ons.  If that's true helibars can be easily fitted, too.  Can anyone confirm this?  Also, are the pipe mounts the same as the GT1000?  Then you could fit Staintune polished exhausts, too.

Given any thought to the Sport Classic GT?  Thumbsup  It's essentailly the same bike as the 1k Sport, but with a genuinely comfortable standard-type riding position.  Light, manouverable, Ducati's usual superb power/fueling character.  My idea is to have the GT's triple trees and a flatter bar put on a Sport 1k, since I like the looks better, but the clip-ons are a killer.

But the Sport's colors are way cooler and the shocks on the GT are way cheap looking.  Plus I love that Seat cowl.

Thus the idea of swapping out the triples/bar from the GT to the Sport (no change in geometry, by the way).  Sport looks with GT comfort!   Bigok
