The SP has more desirability and wow factor. But bling aside, they’re equally good looking. You don’t have the versatility and simplicity of the SP semi-active suspension, but add the optional quickshifter and you’ll be pleased. If you’re confident in suspension set-up or aren’t a trackday addict, opt for the standard model. Just don’t park up next to an SP.
■ Ease of use, liner power, small flickable, brilliant riders aids
WE DON’T LIKE
■ No Quickshifter as standard, ABS can be too intrusive
