    Comparison

    I was going to buy an RC8 katoom , but after 5 years with a superduke I got cold feet
    Don't get me wrong the SD's a brilliant bike all you need for a toy , but it has faults , tank range and fuelling mostly
    Then there's the reliability ,and the cost of bits ,tho that's probably a numbers thing ,less of them about
    Tested the RC8 , and hellfireshit it's fast comfy too ,,but it seems prone to a few issues

    So I got the far cheaper option ,a cheap 03 Mille ,quite pleased with it so far , getting to grips with its charecter
    And little issues , seems to be a hell of a lot more positives with the ape

    Anyone else tried the big KTM ?
    If so what's your take on it
    And what about the other Italian bike ?

    I have only had jap fours before so can't really say. I have ridden a 998 duke and I find the Mille just as able and a lot more comfy. The jap bikes are easier to go fast on straight away but I like a challenge and want to get my RSV lap time to the same or better than on my R1 race bike. Game on.
    I really like them, Milles are fun. A bit lumpy rouund town but rewarding..

    In my opinion, the R is a bloody bargain! If you want new, then buy one from a decent dealer - perhaps get a flight to one someone and ride it back over!

    I agree, the R sounds like a good deal.
