The only thing I wish the V had was a smidge more power. Not a lot more, just a little more. Something in the 750-800cc department.
I was telling another Tiger-owning friend (who is also looking for another bike, but for different reasons) that I have a thing for unusual motorcycles.
Let's face it. Not much out there looks like the V. Gen 1 or 2.
Other bikes I think would be cool to have in the stable:
BMW F 650 Scarver
Yamaha TDM 800
'87 Honda Super Magna (had one)
'88 Honda Hawk GT (had one)
Suzuki RF 900
First generation Katana
'57 Ariel Square Four
I like weird, slightly unusual designs. I don't know why.
The V definitely meets my "brutishly ugly" need in a bike.
The Tiger...some say she's got a face only a mother could love. I personally notice my heart beating a little faster when I look at her pre-ride.
I think I want my Tiger AND a Versys.
