I sold my fz09 a couple weeks ago and bought a super duke. Really liked the fz, but couldn't get the super duke off my mind! Got about 400 miles on it. No problems so far. It's absolutely awesome(and should be for the price). Tons of torque everywhere in the rpm range and really gets nuts above 7k rpm. It's got a little more sporty of a riding position than the fz. A little forward lean to reach the bars, but very comfy. Leg room is about the same, maybe a little less than the fz. I'm surprised at how controllable the power is. Much smoother on-off the throttle than the fz. Hometown Honda in Marietta, Ohio has a demo bike. They'll turn you loose on it unchaperoned, if any of you guys are in that area.
