Not sure if this has been posted or not but I got a kick out of this motorweek review of the s1w

I haven't seen an S1W that clean in...I don't know how long!

Sticker price $10,600, holy crap. Never knew they were that much. Find a nice one nowadays between $3500-4200.

Still fundamentally hand-built at that point. Some automation, not quite as boutique as the S2's were, but still...not an inexpensive motorcycle to manufacture.

Court / 1313 - what was MSRP on the S2 again? Mid-high teens?

I'm convinced that seat was designed by a eunuch.
They liked his work so much he came up with the X1 seat, too!

$11,900 is the number that sticks in my head.

Mid-high teens would be late RS/RSS territory...

You're not supposed to sit still on an s1w. Move around, or you aren't riding it right!

That said, didn't Erik even call it a "one cheek seat"?
