If you end up considering a Ducati as you narrow down your list I would stick to the 2v motors. 695, 696, 796, 1100, S2R (both 800 and 1000cc)
Otherwise you get into the 4v desmos and when maintence rolls around for valve clearance checks/adjustments, it'll be less work if you do it yourself, and
A lot less $$ if you have it done. The 2v motors will make plenty of power for street riding plenty. The 4v is what they put in the hyper sports - 998,999, 748, 749, S4R etc. very powerful but more work and $.
