I currently ride an 01 ST2 and am looking for another toy. I ride with a group of aggressive street riders who also do a number of track days. I have never done a track day but enjoy a spirited ride and am looking to do some track days this year. Most of them ride Jap 4 bangers. I am looking to get a monster that has enough HP to keep up for the most part in the straights and that I can run some track days on. Most people seem to tell me I am looking at the wrong bike and I should get an SV650 or the other extreme and get a liter Jap bike. I really love my current Ducati and can't bring myself to move to a 4 cyl. Feel free to be straight with input. I'm looking for year make and what to watch for and or that I am out of my mind a move onto a 748 or 996 or something. I like the styling of the Monster's and want to use it for street riding too though... I have 16 years riding experience and am not looking for a drag bike I like the twisties better then the straights just don't want to be left in the dust in the straights. Thanks in advance.
