I'm new to this forum and would like to pose the simple question above.
I have a MS V4 PP for touring (doesn't have the character or urgency of my old 2014 MS PP but in every other way is an improvement).
And I have a SF V4S (lucky boy, I know) for shorter day trips. I'm in my late 50s and comfort is becoming more important to me. The SF is surprisingly comfortable but, as a famous reviewer put it, it just wants to go from A to B as quickly as possible. The riding position is also quite sporty which I'm not sure is the best for me. I love its handling.
I'm 5'9, and getting shorter, so the SF (and the PP for that matter) are a bit of a stretch for me. Never a problem but not quite confidence inspiring.
Should I trade? What will I notice as the main differences? Should I stick, while waiting for the inevitable Diavel V4S?
Your thoughts and experiences would be much appreciated.
I have a SFV4S and have just bought a Diavel 1260S as I was disappointed with the Diavel V4 if I'm honest
You can make the SFV4 more comfortable by adding Ducabike risers 20mm and the comfort seat but that doesn't change the fact it's still a missile
The Diavel 1260 is a bit of a Torque monster and is very aggressive in Sports mode and is actually quite a nice cruiser in Urban mode - best of both worlds - it's more comfortable that the SFV4 that's for sure and can do 170 - 180 miles on a tank - it is also confidence inspiring round bends as you have twice the level of grip at the back end so can power on earlier
It's a great useable bike see if you can test ride first
