    Are there any other bikes in this group? any older models or past versions of the above bikes? I am looking at spending between 5 and 9. Opinions on the above bikes?
  2. the Hyosong Comet seems popular, great lookin bike too...

  3. Have you thought of a Kawasaki Z750?

    it's a bit heavier but I sat on one, and i'm a female weighing 65kg and it didn't FEEL heavy at all, cause the seating position was sooo comfy!
