Hi All... First post here!.. Been off a bike for 2 years now. Last bike was a 2006 M109R which I loved. Previous bikes owned... 2004 1600 Suzuki marauder, 2008 GSXR 1000, Katana 750, 2007 GSXR600, and couple of my learner bikes, VTR250 and Honda Shadow 250. I'm 29, love my cruisers, but my mates are on super sports so I want to fit in the group. Otherwise I'd be buying a softail slim or something badass. I want a middle class super sport. Dont REALLY wanna buy brand new, want something current that has LOW kms that someone else is going to lose the first amount of money when you leave the showroom. budget. It's not about budget for me. It's about value for money. I'd rather spend 20k on a bike that in 2 years time im not going to do my nuts on. Than spend 12k on a bike that in a couple of years is worth nothing and i'll need to give it away. Bike will be used for weekend cruises ONLY. not a daily commuter. Maybe the odd 1 or 2 days during summer as I live 10kms from work. I'm not interested in track days. I might do the odd one though as my mate is right into them. incase it matters im 5'11. 90kg -Fit Bikes in mind... Ducati 899 Panigale Triumph 675 ABS (I dont think the R is needed for street) GSXR 750 (hate the new colours in 14' range) MV F3800 Not sure what else. I'm not going to get comfort in any of these. But the more the better. I am kind of keen on safety features like abs, trac controls etc. not a MUST but the more the better. Wheelies etc. not for me. bottom into mid range Where I enjoy it. Not a top end rider either. 899 just looks AMAZING. But 10k better than a gixxer? I also have read mid range isnt great you need the gears abit. Just love it though. And its a ducati. BUT, Value for money..............? What not going to drop ridiculous amounts? HELP! im ready to go!!!
