looks stunning, plenty of grunt , sounds amazing
a bit heavy . drinks the fuel,
Ive owned a couple of Suzuki TL1000's a black bird a gixxer . and a few others.. this Honda VTR1000 SP1 really stands out ., you can tell the build quality straight away . and the bike does have a presents that the other bikes in the car park dont have . i think that goes back to the reason why the bike was designed and built in the first place .. its a ducati beater !! thats what it was built for thats what it did ... a little heavy but still gives fantastic handling . and the v- twin lump gives great performance and once yopu get it singing past the 5k rpm it comes into its own ... very impressive bike .. my advise .. if you have a clean standard tidy one ..KEEP IT its only going to go up in value and you will always wish you didnt sell it no matter what you replace it with .
