    It's not often that I like the later revisions of any bike model.
    IMHO, the Speedmaster up to approx 2010 was a much better looking bike than the later version. With the single front disc & minus the shrouded forks etc.

    However, the latest 1200 Speedmaster is a fantastic looking bike! :)
    Especially when compared to its ugly sister Bella Emberg aka the Bobber! :rolleyes:

    Other opinions are available :cool:

    I've been riding our demo at Woburn the last couple of weeks to put some running-in miles on it.

    Personally I prefer the Bobber Black for its better ground clearance. The Speedmaster has the same fantastic engine and is a comfier ride than the harsher BB, but it would cost me a fortune in replacing ground-down hero pegs and scraped boots from tipping it in to bends and round-i-bowts. It's definitely an A roads cruiser and not meant to be ridden briskly on the twisties that I enjoy. Once you've adjusted your riding style it is a lovely responsive engine no doubt. I'm looking forward to giving the engine a thorough work out once it's been run in.

    Spot on review. There's a lot to love, and not much to dislike. The fuel gauge doesn't seem very accurate, and - for me, coming off a Guzzi - chain maintenance is a nuisance. I love it.
