For me it has to be the Suzuki RE5. I was a dumb shit and bought one of those things.Heap of shite.
Not a Ducati ???? bloody hell... are you ill today ?
SV 650 (sorry SM)it's NOT sporty, it's NOT comfy, it's NOT learner friendly.
it's sporty compared to the Bandit 6, I found it comfortable (apart from the windblast on the motorway and that was on the SV650S!) but can't comment on the learner friendly.
FFS even the MIRTH has more sporting ability!!
The Mirth Nah...seriously...if you are talking 'overrated'...ie: reconed to be better than it actually is...I'd say the MV Augusta. Sure, it looks pretty....but it's not that fast, it isn't technologically innovative in any way, it's a dead formula (750), it has no racing pedigree, it has zero touring ability (given it's horrendous reliability), it's uncomfortable to ride for any kind of distance, and it's massively over priced for what it is.
Think you're spot on with that one.
For me personally it has to be the RD500YPVS when you are talking about hype and anticipation having owned all the other RDLC family. When I rode the 500 a ridiculously tall 1st gear (80mph FFS), the most 4 stroke like 2 stroke I have ever ridden just didn't seem right(don't get me wrong it was fast) and the RG500 was just so much better IMO.
