Hi all, Yes this is my first post and i have already had a good read of everything around. I just spent a good 30 mins typing up a indepth post about the various power outputs of each bike, restricted and unrestricted and then i lost it all when trying to post. ANYWAYS I'm currently riding a VTR250 - awesome bike but i need something bigger. I do know i should wait to my full license but im not going to because my mate is shredding me in a straight line on his GSX650F LAM (full power) and i need something to keep up I'm looking at three bikes mainly: 2011 Ninja 650RL ABS Pros: cheap ($10205), good resale, relilable, liquid cooled,nice upright riding position, abs Cons: Common, parallel twin engine, bike hasn't had much changed to it since the mid eighties Monster 659 Pros: most likely the quickest but i'm unsure, braided hose, brembo big brakes, pirelli tyres, Ltwin engine, dual exhaust with a nice note, lite, abs, easy to unrestrict Cons: Its a bit girl, Its a little bit small for me (i'm 6"5ft), expensive ($15250) SFV650 Gladius Pros: like the vtwin, liquid cooled, almost as quick at 2/3 of the price of the ducati, nice riding position Cons: pretty sure its not available in abs, can be expensive to get new ecu to unrestrict, seat is meant to be really uncomfortable after a while I really like naked bikes (i could get the ninja naked in the form of the ER6NL). I'm just looking for a quick bike that i can LAM rego sticker but easily unrestrict it for track/my own enjoyment. Also let me know if there is anything i should also take a look at.. Cheers if you can help me.
