I've owned two of the 900 SS/SP models. They lack high horsepower and that particular model did require more maintenance than any Japanese bike I've ever owned.

Doesn't matter though. They are worth the trouble. The mechanical noise you get and the amazing handling are worth every penny.

At full song with the flat slides sucking in air, and the exhaust dong it's thing, it's heaven on earth.

The new ones are better, and more refined from the models I owned. I like the Sport Classic line also.

Go get one.

Had a big win at work this week so I celebrated and pulled the trigger on a brand new 2006 Paul Smart!

Waco Euro House has had it as a window display....Mark added new adjustable clip ons, he had already put on Termis and black rims. I rode it 200 miles today in surprising comfort. ....it's sweet!

Big difference from my Road King!

Seen one of those at TWS (Texas World Speedway) a few months ago.
Doesn't look comfy but let me ride it and I will tell you if I think it is or not

The DS has 6k service intervals vs the 1098's 7.5k to be specific...
Course you only have 2valves per cylinder, which cuts the costs....
The Desmodue doesn't have the desmodromic valve actuation so although the book calls for 6k mile valve adjustments, it often doesn't NEED them.
