  1. are these bikes still being produced if not. wat was the last year model was made?

    where they just taken over by the demand and popularity of the GSXR??

  2. do you mean the tl1000r, they are a vtwin, not made anymore, the sv1000 is the equivalent model now. based on the same engine but not as powerful.

    the tl wasn't really a competitor to a gsxr with the different engine and all, more like the honda rc51. it had an odd rotary dampner at the rear which seems to have a bad reputation depending on which magazine you read.

    but dont worry about that, they look and sound awesome.
  3. TL1000R could get more normal aftermarket shocks which would be highly recommended.

    If you're after a wheelie queen extroardinaire these are the goods.
  4. And I thought he was after a Falco. ;)
