I have been riding a new Triumph Bonneville for the past year and am interested in moving to something with sportier handling. Not an SS bike but something more along the lines of a 650r or sv650. A sport bike for everyday riding on the street. The hp on both is comparable to the Bonnie. My question is, to those that have had a chance to ride a Bonnie, do these mid weight bikes handle significantly better? My riding is typically 2-6 hours on weekends on the backroads of CA with some overnight trips thrown in. i am not saying I have explored all of the limits of the Bonnie, but it is a modern take on an old design and its retro charms are no longer so charming. Having said that, I have upgraded my Bonnie with gold valve emulators and Ohlins out back.
