The F is the better bike.

So many reviewers are saying the F is the better more planted bike. This explains why the naked owners are putting it down so much. And the fact that it looks so much better.

The F had to be more planted and easier to ride, after all it is designed for grandma to ride

If you are scared to go over 100 km/h then the naked is for you. Good excuse not to get a little speed up. I guess you could call it a beginners bike.

If you catch a cold of the wind at 180 km/h get an F , otherwise enjoy the pureness of the naked :-)

The comments of this topic are fantastic... ahahahahahahah
Naked or F are two great bike....but I don't like the front of F model... It has an old look for me. I'm sorry TTNorth
However the suspension system is totally regulable...so "better planted" are only words in the wind

I was reading somewhere that the fairing on the F has a lot more down force than the naked due to the fairing. Personally I prefer the look of the naked and enjoy hanging on for dear life above 8000 revs

You're not wrong about hanging on.

2nd and 3rd for me.
I don't use clutch for upshift when I'm giving it just so I can hang on better.

On a slightly different note my ABS saved me today when an Audi (surprise surprise) pulled out on me whilst I was doing 50. I ended up alongside his rear passenger window when I matched his speed. The feckwit still gave me the evils in his mirror like it was my fault.
On previous bikes I don't think I would have been able steer around him so I'm pleased I spent the extra getting it now.
