Affordable 1L Sportbikes 2008 Range I my no-rush quest to look for something exciting for the weekends, I have turned my sights on the 4 Jap sport bike manufacturers. I am looking at 2008-ish models as I reckon it's better value for money letting the first owner take the new bike depreciation hit and odds are good of getting a bike already kitted out with aftermarket exhausts, PC's, etc. at basically no extra cost. I got an opportunity to ride someone's ZX10 a while back and actually need to refresh my memory it was so long ago. I can remember that the handling felt quite odd or quirky, even a riding mate used to CBR's said the same thing about it. What I have gathered by doing some research, talking and reading, is that the ZX10 is quite the animal. Very raw and more track focussed. Mental power. The CBR is the most user friendly and easiest to ride. R1 usually the one with all the tricks, and the GSXR is "a lot of bike for the money you pay", so very good bang for buck. Any recommendations, personal experiences or views?
