Just test rode the 1100 evo and it was a lot of fun :D More fun than my 848 sbk. Only complain was the wind instability on the highway and the low rev limit.

I'm currently in the market for a 1100 evo or the new speed triple. I can get the new S3 for little cheaper and with accessories incentive Triumph is currently offering. Local dealer don't have demo S3 so this is making my decision little harder. Anyone rode both new bikes and can share their opinions? I also ride quite a bit with my fiance and she was pretty comfortable on the monster seat. Not sure if it's the same with S3.

Some of my factors:

Ducati Monster 1100 Evo
-Elegantly sexy
-the brand
-Ducati safety package
-superb handling

Triumph Speed Triple
-masculine look
-more torque, more power
-higher rev limit
-better negotiation room for price

Some thoughts are appreciated~

I had the same choice and went for the evo. Evo has much better built quality and a character all of it's own. Speed Triple was lacking in both.
