If you can adjust to any bike, you will love this one!
The throttle is nice and snatchy/spunky like a quick spirited horse.

I'd get the naked for city life. I have one and its very easy to ride around town...but twist the throttle and take it to redline in first or second gear and you'll laugh yourself silly

Here's mine:

The bike does sound fun. Is the OVER twitchy nature of the throttle everyone was complaining about a couple of years ago somewhat resolved? I see allot of members here got PCs and booster plugs to help deal with this. Is it really necessary?

Nfredriksen, where in westchester? Any chance you'll be riding around over the weekend? I'd love to see/hear the bike live. I'm in Rockland.

Super C, the fairing is necessary for me as I have to ride the NY thruway and I-95 to work. That's allow of highway.

I've got a 16' and did nothing but adjust the TPS, take the slack out of the throttle and then rode, rode, rode. The "problem" isn't all it's cracked up to be. I adapted. Ride it like you stole it, it's fun.

I think it's a fabulous bike and I wouldn't have even thought about the throttle if it weren't for all of the forum complaints. It's no worse than my previous bike, an FZ-07. I love the versatility of the bike. I originally thought I would keep my FZ-07 for commuting, but after test riding the S1000F, I found it light and nimble enough that I couldn't justify keeping the FZ-07 and figured it probably wouldn't get used much.

If you get the bike and find the throttle a little touchy, get a throttle tamer and train your wrist with practice. With restrained, gentle throttle input, the power is pretty manageable below about 5K rpm. It doesn't get crazy until around 8K.
