First things first, just to make it clear, Im not trying to start one of those tell me what to buy threads. So. Going into a dealership at lunchtime to drool over the various machinery, a salesman is trying to convince me that a "VTR1000 Firestorm" would be the go :? . After initially thinking that I wanted something 600 sportbikeish for a second bike because I dont want to do the 250 to 1000cc thing, I sort of decided I liked the CBR600rr or GSXR600. He now has me wondering is a V-Twin 1000 more viable option. Budgetwise they are much of a muchness. On paper the 600s have higher power but less torque. Economywise (I know I know, we are talking sports bikes so what is economy) they are virtually the same, even after hearing that VTR's are thirsty. Weight, the VTR weighs a bit more but hey its not directly focused as a track bike. Comfort (still in the sportbike perspective) the VTR seemed a little more comfortable but seemed a bigger bike, I know it is but compared to say a CBR1000 or a ZX10 the VTR still seemed bigger. Bearing in mind I have no V-Twin experience, I ride a CBR250rr 4cylinder, am a 5'5" weed and am still on my P's so can't legally test ride any of them :roll: , would the Firestorm or any other 1000cc V-Twin be a sensible option as a second bike? Has anyone bought one for a second bike? What was the outcome? I am asking this question so all the other people coming off restrictions and trying to make the same decision can see the result as well.
