Well said. Just depends on what you want really. I have NO complaints about my 14. Smooth delivery of power. More comfortable on those longer trips. Like stated before the looks aren't for everyone but i like them, and well that's why I own it. The ONLY real issue i have with it is in lower gears........... after my mods I have problems with traction with I crack open that throttle. I use SOFT rubber and everything. I weigh 179lbs. So MAYBE its my weight? I think a stretch would help but just haven't gotten there yet. Oh and wheelies are a bit tricky but hey its a 14. Never pretened it was a stunter.

Ugly tail? I guess if you like the current trend of overly wide fairings for no reason..

I all really boils down to personal taste.. still pretty good aftermarket support for the 12R, depending what you are wanting..
