Now that I have to get a new bike 2 have tied for first. SV1000S, or a TL1000R. I want to get more into track days, and sport riding. My question is which bike bike can be made to perform better? I think it would be the TL, but maybe there is something I don't know about.

I wouldn't pick either if I was planning to get more serious about sport/track riding. But I guess out of these two I would be tempted to pick the TL just because I always liked them better.

lol he has a 650, and it sounds like he goes to the track. if you want to "step up" on the track, I'd go with a gsxr750 at most, but a 600 i4 like the gsxr is still probably a "step up" track wise.

The SV1000 isn't a better track bike - it's more of a sporty touring bike.
Neither of those is a better track bike. Get a 600SS or another SV650.

But if I had to choose, I'd go with the SV1000 because it's closer to the SV650 I already have.

I'll answer the original question instead of giving unsolicited advice:

The TL, simply because I have an SV and I love the way the TL looks.
Thank you. I know that there are faster bikes out there, but I am not just looking for the fastest bike. I want something a little different. ;D
