Monster 1200S Black - and it's all mine

So, last week I traded my 2012 1100 Evo in for a new 1200S Black. Wow! what a difference. Have only ridden it twice as the weather has been really crap but, boy, did it make me smile. Photo to follow.

Congratulations, Steve. I guess with almost 50% more power, it will feel pretty nippy!

Of course, now you no longer have the Evo, you'll have to change your forum name.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures.

I can't think of anything better than my 1200S. Except maybe another 20bhp.... I don't need what I've got, but it'd sure feel good! The chassis can handle it easily. Good choice, I may join you with a Black one next summer.....

I traded my 821 for the standard 1200 two and a half weeks ago, as the 1200 was heavily reduced and I still got a great trade in. I love the extra go, better fuelling, better steering (steeper head angle), better suspension and the hydraulic clutch. I bought the lower seat for it, as Im only 56, and had the quick shifter moved from my 821 to the 1200. Im really happy that I made the change and already have about 350 miles on it.

You are just down the road from me Jet, didn't know there was a monster in Weston, never seen one around. Glad you are enjoying the 1200.
