Me being all over the place is a fair statement. 6 months ago I thought I'd be getting my dream car (viper) life is a cruel SOB. Now it's ktm commuter vs 959 vs xdiavel ect.. I know when it finally comes to pulling the trigger things will probably change again.

I am playing around with MS paint and a pic of the diavel. I will try to post my very crude pic at some point.

Test rode the Xdiavel yesterday at their Chicago tour visit for about 45 minutes. The suspension is extremely rough and the seat is pretty uncomfortable but these are easy to fix with proper suspension tuning and a nicer seat. The power is there but the bike definitely needs to be custom tuned to iron out the jerkiness of the power delivery especially at lower speeds. I think this is a common issue with performance Vtwins due to having to meet emissions standards. The bike is very flickable and responsive which is nice and really feels at home when you're going fast.

Most stock VTwins power delivery is always somewhat herky jerky on roll-on / off from 0mph till about 20mph. There's a lot of mass that has to get thrown up and down in two big power pulses until momentum helps smooth everything out.

An aftermarket tune helps but it's always there just to a lesser extent.

I have heard the suspension is extremely rough. Hadn't heard the seat is bad via any reviews. Also the throttle response has 3 modes and Urban mode is supposed to be selected if using the bike in a city driving setting. Really mutes the throttle response per all the reviews I have read.

In your opinion is it worth 24,000?

This is incorrect.

Agree with this.
Handled well but suspension is rough and seat isn't comfortable for any length of time.
My 2015 R1 has a very abrupt throttle in "A" mode.

My SuperDuke R was pretty good right out of the dealer but was much better once dyno tuned. Inline 4s definitely feel smoother though.

I'm very heavy so the seat is more specific to me. But the short answer to your question for ME is no. It's not a 24k bike. Especially considering the engine used in it and all the other technology is already in Ducati's inventory. I was expecting to be wow'ed more.

Now imagine if H/D decided to step their game up and make some technology improvements on the V-Rod ...

Don't confuse primary balance issues with fuel mapping.
