Duke has all the right stuff, from its vicious V-Twin power plant, state-of-the-art braking system, real-world riding position and top-shelf suspension components effectively bundled with looks that kill. In the end, this soldier should be a force to be reckoned with in the battle for Street Fighter supremacy here in the U.S.A.

Basic specs: An exceptionally sporty naked bike powered by a 1000cc, 75-degree V-Twin that bangs out 106 horsepower and 68 foot-pounds of torque. The counterbalanced engine hangs in a steel-trellis frame fitted with excellent WP suspension at both ends.

The Super Duke did not win a Ten Best Award in 2007 but it came damned close. Though barely edged out in the Best Open Streetbike and Best Standard categories, it did earn a much-deserved Honorable Mention. Thanks in no small part to its 417-pound dry weight—barely more than the top middleweight repli-racers of the time—the Super Duke turned in a 10.79-second, 123.9-mph quarter-mile performance. It also registered a top speed of 142 mph, not terribly shabby for an unfaired V-Twin.

Then there's the bike's sensational handling: In the twisties, the Super Duke is about as much confidence-inspiring fun as you're likely to experience on two wheels. Long, constant-radius curves are carved like flying on autopilot—no further input needed once your bank angle has been set. On the open road, the Super Duke is a pleasant all-around ride. But on a back road, it's naked-bike excitement at its best.
