My pick? It would have to be the Vmax 1700. I owned a Vmax 1200 and liked it a lot (should have never sold it). Nothing like the V-boost when overtaking a fast moving logging truck!!!

I don’t know where your prices are based from but here in Australia you would not even get a used model of any of those bikes for the dollars you quote as new price.Example a Triumph Rocket 3 around 2008 will cost $14000.
