The buzz when you hit the power band on a 2 stroke is an experience everybody should get.
The top RGV shows 67bhp on a dyno and only weighs 125kg.
Planning a modern RG 500 at the mo. Engine is ready. Just looking to source a modern chassis and suspension.

I wish current versions of these were still available, imagine what they would be like with 20 years of more development gone into them.
Road or track bike?
I would love to get another smoker. Was on the look out for an Aprillia RS250 when I picked up the 851, prices here in Oz have nearly doubled in the last year or two with them.
Hard to find a decent one under A$10k anymore. First year of riding in Australia at the time limited you to 250cc and these thing were thrashed/crashed by, well guys like me.
That and a healthy 250 production racing scene has left very few available in original condition.
Funnily enough most of Oz now has a different leaners scheme that limits you to 660cc and 150 kw/ton which opens them up to heaps more choices but not these 250cc smokers.

The rear wheel is RS250. Tyga body work. Rear shock is now Ohlins as well. Might track it but it's a bit precious. Previous guy spent a mint on it.
He lost 50% of his spend. My gain. Love it. It's pretty enough be be indoors but no room unfortunately.

Beautiful bike. I'd lusted after one since the 70s and finally had a go riding one last Summer. Really liked it.

First bit of dry weather for weeks so I go out and wheel the SD into the sunshine. Will it start? No. Flat battery so I wheel it back into the garage and put it on charge.

Wheel out my 40 year old triple and she starts first kick and away we go in a cloud of two stroke. :D

I'm with sunofnun on this; I always lusted over your bike on the TL boards and seriously thought of doing something similar to mine... until I realised I didn't have the skill (or money) to make it look good. Your bike (and riding motards) got me looking at nakeds which got me into the SD so thanks for that!

As for the thread; with my 10 year old losing interest in riding dirt, my other bikes have been sold off and the SD is now alone in the garage.

I'm interested mate...

How do you compare the Duke with the two Buells? And while we're on the subject how do those V Twins compare to the Superduke?

You obviously have a thing for V Twins but these are all very different bikes even though they all share the same engine configuration?

I used to own an air-cooled Ducati 900SS (1991 vintage) and it was a great engine in a pretty good chassis but when I got my Superduke I didn't really feel much similarity. OK it was still a v twin that didn't really need to be revved to get the most out of it but the superduke BHP and torque was in a different league. And it handled better than the Duke as well. But I guess it was a bike with 15 years more evolution in it's DNA. But the 916 was leagues ahead of my old 900 and your model was leagues ahead of the 916.

I always thought the Buell was a joke really. But maybe you can change my opinion.

I have had Buells for too long ..... 14 years. They ride great at just above legal speeds, great handling (esp the XB). The S1W is a beautiful looking bike, with all the standard type acceptance shite removed. I think Eric should have done something like the Superduke with his later 1125 bikes and EBRs (rather than have fuel in the frame). The SD is FAR more powerful and feels 'modern' ..... something the air cooled buells can never......that said the XB is brilliant on twisty roads. The Duke is a lovely, beautiful, great handling and more than enough power to have fun with a reasonable respect retaining a Licence.....I sold an RC8 when I got it as it was more sensible on the road.

bic_bicknell wrote:You obviously have a thing for V Twins but these are all very different bikes even though they all share the same engine configuration?

The aircooled bikes are clearly less powerful than the watercooled ones but much easier to ride in traffic etc, due to ability to pull cleanly from 1500rpm.

bic_bicknell wrote:I always thought the Buell was a joke really. But maybe you can change my opinion.

Buells are character bikes, great to ride but full of inherent faults and reliability worries (despite simple design and 'american engineering')......especially now that spares are becoming more difficult to source. Still love em though. :D

Cheers mate. Appreciate the considered reply. :D

I keep seeing the old 900ss and Superlights on eBay and am tempted to find one to reclaim and put in the garage but I've forgotten how low powered they really were!

Her's a picture of me and that bike from the early '90s

Not sure about the UK but I can't remember the last time I saw an early white frame 900/750SS and if there are any Superlights left they are obviously tucked away.
I always loved the half faired version in this colour scheme, although they were by far the least popular version.
Although vastly underpowered by todays standards, it would still be fun to ride. The 851 was in its day a true superbike but feels a bit sluggish and heavy when compared to an early SD. Still heaps of enjoyment to be had on it.
Prior to getting my first SD I toyed with the idea of an XB12R, even took one for a test ride. I was pretty amazed that the American iron spun up as quick as it did and it had no problem finding redline. As fun as it was ride position was crippling and it was no match for the SD.
With the stock market likely to head south probably get a better return on something like an SL, at least you will have fun with it.

Do you still fit into those pants? :lol:

There's still a big fan base out there for 900 Superlights. There's a Facebook page and this register.
Ducati Superlight & Ducati 900SS/FE register (www.ducati900sl.com)

The white framed bikes were always the prettiest IMO. Not sure why they started painting the frames bronze.
