The Norge is heavier than the Sport by about 12kg, Breva by 9kg, seat height are all the same, supposedly 92hp for the sport, 87hp for the Breva and 88hp for the Norge. Sport and Norge have 23 litre tanks and Breva 24ltr. Been looking to buy a new bike so I had all this written down. I have ridden the Breva 750 and 850 but not the Sport or 1100 Breva. The Breva 850 feels more like an 1100 bike, smooth and hops along quite nicely compared to the 750.

My Audace is basically the same bike minus the plastic. I haven't noticed that problem. I do get some heat at times, mostly slow speeds. I will have to look into that.

Having ridden a 1200 Sport since 2013, I think the absence of the weight of the large front fairing and having the shorter handlebars, which places your weight slightly forward on the naked 1200 Sport, makes it much more maneuverable at slower speeds and in the twisties than the Norge.

 :thumb:  +1.  I like the 1200 Sport for my type of riding.  I didn't like the locked in feeling of the Norge seat. 
From the Deep Deep South out in left field.  There are no stupid questions.  There are however stupid people asking questions.  🤣, this includes me.  😉

I can’t say enough good things about my 1200 Sport. I bought it new from Moto International 96,000 miles ago. A very well-balanced bike.

Saturday, I bought an’08 Norge from a local guy in Vancouver WA. 22,000 miles, well cared for, well maintained, nicely accessorized.

I think the Sport is going to be better for day to day living and the Norge is going to be better for the ‘Crossing Time Zones’trips. Plus cooler Spring and Fall trips. The Norge is definitely better above 80mph.

I do think the Norge packaging makes niggling and fiddling less entertaining, more frustrating. The buttons for the information suite are more complicated  for the Norge, but I am getting better at it.

My friend had the Breva 1100 and let me ride it a couple of times. I loved it. I bought the Norge because I wanted a fairing and hard luggage. This was 11 years ago. I have not looked back at all.

Avoid the Red 2V Norge 1200 at all costs! I need the ones that are left for future parts bikes  :grin:
