I rode my mates Ducati 996 the other day and realised just how good a big capacity twin is to ride. When I was looking for the Hornet 600, I was also looking at a VTR1000, but opted for the Hooner. What I'm wanting to know is: Is there much of a performance difference between the Hornet and VTR? Worth upgrading to the VTR thou? VTR a better bike to do longer trips on? I'm thinking I can almost swap my 1998 Hornet for a similar year VTR1000, with similarly low KM's. Any thoughts are appreciated. Cheers Daz.
