I'm looking forward to the difference too . The Buell was a great ride BTW . Flicked like no other , Beautiful torque , 1385mm wheelbase ,21 deg rake ,and turned in almost telepathically.
The issue ?;...... Reliability. Real shame , as it had all the right characteristics .
The K2 ; (power commander, yosh pipe )A very sweet bike . very stable at speeds . Easy to ride fast in the bigger sweepers . Issue: all the power was in the upper rev range ,9,000 + , and on the road your rarely there . Sure , there are moments , but not enough to warrant keeping it .
Why the SP2? . Tried the Trumpy 1050 ; just wasn't me . I like the race bike crouch and any thing out side that feels truly strange .
Looked at the Aprilia RSV factory, and the 916 SPS, but the old reliability issues raised its head again .
Did think of the MV F4 and a new CBR 1000RR , but again the reliability(MV) and all the power put where it's not used in RL became apparant .
So ; The only bike to fit the requirements I set was the SP Honda .
Power where it's used in RL , superb build quality (exotic), exclusive and rare , handles as a bike should , and above all : RELIABILIY .
Cons ? ; a tad porky 194kg , but some carbon fibre , and bst rims will remedy that. Not that it's too much concern . I have no trouble keeping up in the tight stuff on my TRX against the CBR's and the like .And it's 190kg with only 80hp .
From Adelaide BTW . Touch wood I'll be up Canberra way in Oct touring on the Trixie .
