Hello to all. I had been looking for a Monster forum and luckily I found this place. I have been riding bikes for many years now and have always lusted after the Monster. I've decided that I will definitely be picking one up but cannot decide which one to get. I have narrowed it down to the 1000s, the S4 or the S4r. Most would say to go with the S4r yet I really like the clean look of the air cooled monster therefore I am leaning towards the 1000. My main question is whether or not the 1000 is as powerful as a modern day 600cc. bike. I now ride a Honda F4 and I would like to make that a track bike and use the Monster for the street. I know that the two are totally different bikes but I'm hoping that the 1000 with it's torque is about as quick as the 600cc bikes. You know enough to do some nice wheelies ;D Thanks in advance.
