  1. hey guys,

    I know these are different bikes and both have their differences but i am off my L's and cant choose which one.

    i havent test rode any of them yet (hopfuly this weekend) and was wondering wich one is faster and better for commuting and a bit of fun and where the power lies in these engines? and which would have the best ballance of low,middle and top power?

    thks guys

    safe riding
  2. Personally I'd go the twin. Far more forgiving engine and easier to ride. (Sounds great too)
    The Hornet is also a fantastic bike but I'd be looking at the 600. Why would you be wanting a 900 straight off your 'L's ?
