    Lots on here come from owning Blades and R1's, take it out for a spin and then you'll know why horsepower aint everything

    And welcome to the zone

    Probably 115-120+ for the older models with 70+ torque but more knowledgeable owners on here will be able to tell you more accurately. I think the TL's are much heavier bikes than the mille. I've never ridden one so can't comment on comparisons with the mille

    Got any pics or details of your prospective buy

    Hi, I was in the notion to change a few year ago from a 2001 tl1000 to an RSV millie, took the millie for a run and loved it, its a lot lighter than the TL and goes really well. As a result i bought the 03 millie and couldnt bear to part with the TL so I still have both bikes and ride them turn about. The torque of the v twin is fantastic, go ahead buy the RSV, they got sole man !

    I had a 954 and went to a Mille! Never looked back, far more fun and has character.
    I'd say that Mille is worth no more than 3k max though.
    Mine (03) has 120RWHP and 73Ftlbs, they are "more useable" in the real world than a high revving IL4 but I have to say the 954 with an ohlins on the rear is a fine handling bike.
