Found myself driving past pete stevens and had one of those "oooh shiny stuff"(girls are attracted to shiny bling, bling things, just I prefer the 2 wheel variety) moments. Went for a gander and checked out the FZ6R nice bike 2010 model $11,000 ish on the road asked a few questions, had a sit blah blah blah Then he decides to show me the Ninja 650RL, 2011 $10,000 on road with ABS..straight away I scoffed because its a kawasaki(and granted I have no legitimate basis for my not liking kawasakis... I just dont) Apparently the handling and performance is superior to the yamaha and more bang for buck with current model, decreased depreciation with the mere fact of ABS(which makes sense) I did like the more agressive styling of the 650 over the Yamaha, and also the more "agressive"(maybe the wrong word) postion that you sit on the bike. But it is still a kawasaki!!! So from the beginning of the week I have gone from "chucking" in riding from external sources, to a big FU I love it Im doing it anyway. A little more power, increased handling and performance than what the hyo has offered has certainly got me thinking. Any opinions on how the 2 stack up against each other?
