My thoughts are, I think the new bonnie's are like the old one's but on steroids, they rev heaps more than Commandos, the Bonnie has'nt the torque of the Commando, so you are useing the gearbox more and the Bonnie's steer quicker.
Nothing dance's round on the center stand like a Commando, the front wheel shakeing back and forward, all great caracter in my opinion, sittng on a rubber mount Sportster on idle is pretty close.
Actualy a roadking on a center stand on slow idle brings a smile to my face, the front wheel bounceing around. Funny the things that entertain me.
So sorry I think they feel different, just my opinioon, I think the new bonnie feels more like a GT 860 Duke.
Maybe a good debate here.
