  1. Since I am bike-less now and theres a good chance on my old one getting written off, I have started looking at new bikes.

    Basically I am looking for a bike mainly for weekday commuting, it's about 35 km each way. Also like getting out for a weekend ride just for the sake of it.
    Not looking for anything rediculasly powerful, mainly looking for nice easy bike to ride that is comfortable 2up as the missus will be going on the back sometimes.

    There are a few that have taken my interest. 2006 Sv650, 2006 Er6-n.

    Would this bike suit this and what else do you guys recommend to look at.
    Price range is about 5000 - 7000.

    Not looking for something to sporty as I am still pretty new for riding and like nakeds / semi-naked.
  2. owning a 600i4. id say stick with the twins. sv and er6n. more usable power.
  3. Thanks for those, they are spot on for what I am looking for.

    They haven't come up in my trolling of the sales sites for some reason..
  4. That SV sure looks nice! Go the v-twin Geeth. :)
