Does anyone have a copy of the superbike mag test between the F$, 999 and benelli tornado they can send to me ?

I don't have the magazine, sorry, but I have the three bikes in my garage. I own two if them, and the third one is my best friend's slap in the face: he decided not to go with the flow and since he lives outside the country he parks it here, with the keys in the block and the insurance paid... Actually his best insurance is the bike itself... Drive it once and you'll never want to do it again! :-)

The 998R has so much torque that the Benelli feels like a little japanes girl. To be frank, the MV feels much alike, but I am waiting for the new 1000 to slap their faces in the garage in February (somehow I feel the Duke will not offer the cheek, but nevertheless I'm waiting to see). One plus for the Benelli is the unrivalled sound! Wow... Von Karajan would pay homage as he did only once in his life: Maranello BB 512 (carburettors not the puny electronic siringe).
