xorbe I was just saying on reddit that F9 needs to make movies not motorcycle reviews. It takes them too long to present not that much information. It's just a gussied up KTM 690.

To each their own.
And I'd [almost] agree with you, except that in this particular instance I found it lacked the interesting content to keep me watching.
Content is king, IMO.


I simply won't continue to watch for the sake of some neat camera work, clever motion tracking, fancy dolly shots, and/or quad-copter footage. Those are great as a transition to another segment, or as a short "brake", but shouldn't be used ad nauseam for the sole purpose of showing off one's ability to create them.

Thanks for posting, but dang: that is WAYYYY over-produced. Never finished watching past about half way.



Pretty pictures a good review don't make!

Gables_Ninja FortNine just came out with a review for the Vitpilen 701. It reminded me of this post. Man are they something else when it comes to bike reviews!

You buy it, I'll try it.

But for right now for over $210 plus taxes and shipping I'll give it a pass.

Interestingly after the first 1000 kilometre oil change it has yet to stall on me. I'll know or have a different opinion after they do the valve clearance check this weekend.

To make a short story long, my Ural decided to lose some bearings again 8 kilometres from the campground at Port Dover for Friday the 13th.
A month later, the Ural still in the shop, I had a work call out of town.
The job finished in 2 hours so it was off the the bike shop in that town.
So here is the part you want to know.
I had no interest for any motorcycle on my mind when I went into the store, in fact I had no interest or plan in buying any motorcycle when I went into the store.
So I'll go back to my previous comment -
"Always liked the look but thought it was priced out of my range. It wasn't."
That can be said for many other bikes but I didn't go into those shops that Saturday.
Moral of the story, had the Ural not have broken down I would have been camping that weekend not working so I would never enter the bike shop to see the Vitpilen and I would never had bought it.

It is anything but common-place like my Ural and CCM and now the Husqvarna. I see a expensive trend starting to happen.

The interesting take is it may replace my Ninja.
Loved the Ninja for the city but the Vitpilen is proving to be a better city bike. Ninja stills wins for long distance travel over the Vitpilen

Claims:
- Soft and smooth throttle response
- Quicker acceleration
- The end of the dreaded low speed surging
- Removes the weak idle and stalling issues
- Minimize the backfire in your aftermarket exhaust

I do know that blipping the engine while in first at a stop will cause the engine to shut down. This has happened a few times to me.
