Feedback on naked bikes

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by Ride4fun, May 16, 2016.

  1. I'm looking for some feedback and advice in regards naked bikes that look good, has decent power, has good fuel consumption, is reliable, is comfortable and don't need to much additions or adjustments. My budget is between 7-9k ride away. Looking forward in hearing for some amazing people. Bikes I like so far are the yamaha mt 07 & mt 09 and Kawasaki ER6NL abs.

  3. Are you on your LAMS or open licence?

    If Opens, then the MT-09 is hard to look past.

  6. There's also an immaculately-presented Yamaha FZ1 in the Bikes for Sale forum section. The Kawasaki Z1000 also has a lot of happy owners.

  7. Mate, for that price range you simply can't beat the MT09. It compromises in places, like the suspension, to make it cheap enough for all to own.

    I've had mine for about 3 months and love it to bits. I commute everyday and go through the twisties on the weekend and the MT09 is great. Like I said, suspension can be a bit suss, especially if you're bigger guy. I'm 87kg with gear on and the suspension works great for street, but is at its limit when pushing hard.

    Does great wheelies, I often wonder why any other motors exist on motorbikes to be honest. It is sweet as candy.

    Check out this thread for a list of all the guys here who own one and the work they've done on them to date.

    MT-09 owners, hands up

    I just wanted to hear more opinions from some other people. If you left your feedback you don't have to do it again. You are not tripping mate.. i know you and George have some amazing sense of humour. You should go to the comedy festival
  18. Perhaps he has his eye on a bike that hasn't been mentioned yet and he's waiting for it to come up to justify his decision.
