What do you fools know about the Tiller?

Other than the obvious...heavy, torquey, etc.

I'm thinking about buying on this winter. I love torque. And the sound of the twin. This is the solution to that.

Here's a pic to look at...

KatanaPilot sold his and bought a new R6 so he would be the best to ask.

I wonder how these compare to the SV1000S.

I haven't heard great things about the SV1000. I'd rather have the TL. From what I hear the rear suspension isn't great on the TL either though.

Yeah I haven't heard good things about the 1000 either. Everyone seems to love the 650, but never say anything about the 1000. I think I will go with an inline 4 next though.

I dont like to ride the upper end of the powerband alot so I think the smooth torque delivery all the way from idle would be awesome from this thing.

I dig 'em. They're pretty ballsy. I'd never buy one but I like 'em.

I love em...and I've pretty much got my mind set on it. But I've been known to change my mind.

They sound good as fu*k with an exhaust on 'em. How do they compare to a RC51? As far as dyno and all that.

I've heard they are better performance wise to the RC...but I have no numbers to back that up. But I absolutely HATE the front fairing on that RC51. If it looked better I would consider it.

I think the suspension is pretty good on the 51. What'd the wifey say about a new purchase?

2 problems with buying it right now. First. There are none for sale locally. Trust me I have been looking. 2nd...I would have to sell my bike first. I dont want to lose prime riding time.

Pretty reasonable....I'm looking for anything other than a 97. So 98-03. I've seen as cheap as 3 large to 7. I'm looking for something less than 5. And they are all fuel injected.

Fuel injected is a big selling point IMO. I hate carburators. Too much of a hassle on bikes.
