2011 Naked Middleweights Shootout

Motorcycle.com lets it rip on 4 streetfighters, the BMW F800R, Aprilia Shiver, Triumph Street Triple R, and the Yamaha FZ8. The Ducati Monster 796 was late to the party, and was prevented from joining. I like how they call them unfaired funsters, check out the comparison.

Ducati Monster 796 vs Triumph Street Triple R

Ducati Monster 796 vs Triumph Street Triple R on Motorcycle.com. “We anticipated the Triumph to exhibit an unfair horsepower advantage, but knowing the grunty nature of a Twin, we weren’t surprised by dyno results that showed the bigger-cube Ducati as the torque champ.”  Sounds like a good match-up!
