I currently have a VTR1000 Firestorm and i'm looking for a brand new bike to replace it as a daily commuter and weekend warrior. I love the power and sound of the V-twins and would prefer to stick with them if possible. My daily ride consists of 95% along the M2 (Sydney) for a 45km round trip and during weekend rides with my wife we cover approx 100km-200km. In total I would cover around 20,000km each year. I would like a full fairing bike to decrease the wind above 100km/h as I cop a lot more wind on the M2 than I do when riding the RS125. I am not brand loyal, I like some brands more than others however I am all ears. What I have done so far - I test rode a new ZX6R which was nice but I wasnâ€™t really fond of the idea of having to really rev the bike to get it going. On weekends that wouldnâ€™t bother me but on daily riding the instant power is what I rely on to get me out of sticky situations. Iâ€™ll hopefully ride a new ZX10R today to see how that compares to the 600cc. Iâ€™m planning on taking a Triumph 675 for a burn on Saturday and with some luck I can fit a new GSXR600 in on the same day. Is it crazy to consider a new 848 as a daily rider potentially covering 20,000km/yr? The reviews seem very positive on this bike and I have always wanted one to ride to the cafÃ© and punce around on weekends LOL. My only concern is being able to sell the bike with 30-40kms on the clock. If I got one of these I would hope on a worst case scenario I could get $13k for it after 2 years. Any thoughts on that?
