I Ride: Ninja 250R(track), RC390(street), 899 Panigale(street)
Versys 650 (dad's)
RC390
Ninja 250R (Track bike that never seems to work)

I'd suggest a naked or touring bike for ultimate comfort. Maybe a Tuono?

My Panigale handles full track duty nowadays, I have a MV Agusta Dragster 800. But its up for sale as I don't do much street riding anymore. Looking to getting another track bike.

Love the look of the Dragsters, How does the bike preform on the streets ?

I absolutely love the Dragster. Double can provide good insights here as well.

Below is a post from when I picked up my Dragster RC and some riding impressions. It's my second Dragster (I originally had an RR when they first came out). It's a really fun bike to ride on the street. Plenty fast, high revving, comfy seating position and competent at all things with solid electronics, transmission, quickshifter, etc. The fact that it's gorgeous doesn't hurt either!

Dragster RC

Dragster is a ton of fun in the street. Only complaint is the suspension. Its sprung for someone thatís about 80lbs in the front and 200+ in the rear.
And there isnít much other there for options to make it right. Rebound is wayyy to fast in the front. I ended up changing oil weight from 7.5 to 15 and it still didnít slow it down enough.
I had Dave Moss set it up for me as well and he said the same. Recommended fork oil change.
Besides that the bike is amazing. I have an SC Projects CRT pope on it and itís toooo loud. Like way too loud. But that just causes my heads to turn.
If anyone is interested itís up for sale and priced pretty good.

Ended up getting the GSXR1000R. Great bike. Very smooth, no heat, quick shift is good, Light clutch and very easy to take off. Comfortable for long rides cruising.
Thanks from maxnne
