Hey all,

I loved my piss yellow 2013 Speed Triple ABS. It didn’t have cruise control or any funky gyros or flappers but it was cool AF.

I don’t know if the 2022’s didn’t sell well or what, but I have a chance to pick up one at a deep discount.

Question is, is this thing too much like a BMW? What I mean is, the 2013 Urinator popped and sung and was full of character, she was so pretty too. Everyone liked that bike!

She was so nice that now, I am literally afraid to ruin it with this tech’d out waspy lookin iPhone on wheels. Although I think it looks cool, Is it really an S3 or could it be something new entirely?

Anyone rode them both that could give a good comparison?? Thx!

I kind of have the same question. My 2007 is perfection. But you don't get cruise control until 2018. I'm not gonna say no to all the traction control/abs stuff that started 2016 but am not going to ride by wire without freakin cruise control what were they thinking. Then also, I have zero interest in more power so I guess I'd probably never get into the 2021+ in any case. My vague plan has been to just keep checking searchtempest every once in a while, and when I can get a 2018 around $8000 I'd do it.

Then again if it's a REALLY good deal, then it's money in the bank! If you can sell it for the same amount in a couple years then you can't not buy it even if you don't really want it ;) Your money is better stored in the bike than in a bank, right?
