This is the first bike I've seen since I bought the SV back in 2003 that both interests me and is in my budget. What do you think?
This newest version of the MT is pretty close to the SV in terms of hp and torque. Plus it's ~35 pounds lighter which in theory should make for better braking and acceleration. I haven't seen any 0-60 or 60-0 times yet but expect to soon.yes, theyre popular, i rode my friend's MT09, it was 2018, light nimble, fast - got it to 110mph very quick,, just bit small for me im 5'9", he dumped big chunk of cash into it as factory suspension was too soft, so he got that upgraded + exhaust + seat...
that was about 2500 bucks....but SV still has more punch compare to it and i paid for my bike the amount he spent on upgrades.
