It can be ridden either, not as ride it like you stole it Superduke 990. I should say it has all the toys and I haven’t topped out with it yet, so many rider modes at the press of a button.

The SD was probably getting too much for me as I think my legs have shrunk along with my muscles,I’m 63 next month. The 790 is a dream to ride,so is the 690.

I know, but I've had all the others :D2 Honda have always seemed boring, down on power and drab colours. I've always wanted to want one :ROFLMAO:

My first bike was a Honda (XL250s).

I tour with a local Honda dealer and always get the piss taken ‘cos I ride a Ducati!

Traded my rd250 for a dt 400 excellent fun bike lacked top end been stuck between grin factor and sensible ever since tdr 250 was a lot faster and crossed over well compared to my 950sm but both have serious fun factor and power

Had 2 Hondas, CB125 and a Hornet, that is a bike with attitude.
Also capable of touring, mind you finished a tyre off in 2 weeks going round Europe.
Also had a RD250, nice civilised 2 stroke.
Then a Suzuki T500, same frame size as a 250, surprised many people when it left the lights or racing down the motorways.
Like the old British so got a BSA A50 still in the back of the garage and a once new T140ES last of the Meridan bikes.

My wife bought a 600 Hornet and sold it 3 years later to a dealer for £50 less than she paid for it,rode it all year. Excellent bike, one tiny spot of rust on the horn. Should have kept that one.
