Need opinions: thinking about getting a standard bike

I never thought this would happen, but living in new England has ruined owning a sportbike for me. I absolutely adore my blade, but every time I ride it's either on the highway, or in gridlock. The only way to ride good roads around here are to go about an hour and a half+ away, which kills my back. I'm thinking about trading the blade in on the fz07, but in torn. Not sure how I'd like not having a super sport anymore (other than the track bike), and I'm so in love with my bike.

Note: getting rid of the blade to get an older sport bike and standard bike isn't an option. I'm limited by height and I only buy new sportbikes because I don't trust people to take care of their bikes

Tough decition... But if it is killing your back then I would say go for it...

The new YAmmis are very nice looking gals and the seem to be working good.

Your Blade is a beauty...

I also have a "long" drive to the fun roads, but I'm still willing to make them... No back problems (yet). I know the feeling...

Why not a CB1000R ??



You have a handle-bar, still a Honda and great looking... Everybody has good words for this bike too... And it doesn't have a very high seat.

I would go for a CB1300S ... But that's just me...

Have you tried the Kawi Z1000SX ??

There are some bikes that are between sport bikes and road bikes... Naked bikes, or those Naked bikes that had a fairing put on them (like the Z1000SX is for the Z1000)... I would say go to each brand dealer and try the seat height for these kind of bikes...

The new Suzuki GSX S1000, Or the new Ducs Hyperstrada, The Kawi Z1000SX, even the latest CBR650F (looks confi, low and looks sporty)...



Components don't look very well (forks, brakes, etc...) but knowing how Honda makes its bikes, I'm sure this one is very balanced...

I don't think I could ever do a kawi. The gsxs750 was on the list, but went to the dealer and it's still too big. It's based on an gold gsxr750. The fz07 fits like a glove, and I think would be great most of the time. I just wonder if I'll be ringing it's neck every where I go

I have considered a street triple. It's just a hair too high but maybe I could drop the forks a bit

Ducati Streetfighter. Tons of torque, upright seating position and still somewhat "unique." Never been a fan of the Japanese standards.

Yeah the Duc Streetfighter is a tall one. Right idea though. I think there are a lot of bikes that are pretty much sportbikes for all intents on the roads. People like to call them standards but some are anything but. Maybe naked sports or sport nakeds? I know someone's going to take that somewhere kinky but I'm going there. The Street Triple is a top pick. Def look into lowering link out back and dropping forks out front to get it correct but better for your height. Other alternates maybe to consider:

Ducati Monster 796. Slightly down on HP compared to the 600RR but much better torque. Might be able to find one still hanging around in a dealer.

Ducati Hypermotard 821. More power than the 600RR all around. Pretty low, very capable. Have ridden with a guy on one who's a better rider than me. Smoked me in the twisties easily on that thing.

The FZ07's cool but you will absolutely want to figure in sorting out the suspension on it right away. Total crap suspension even by OEM crap suspension standards. Hear the bike transforms when doing that.

Lots of good suggestions. I've been thinking about the triple. The monster seems too girly for me. Stock suspension on the fz is super soft but that's perfect for me since I'm a midget

Saw my first FZ-07 in person at the D store in Costa Mesa. Really good looking bike in the flesh. Since my first bike was an SV650 I have an appreciation of middle weight sport standards.

KTM is also bringing their 390 Duke here...

I'm not digging the look of the FZ07, but if it works for you (your height and riding) then go for it.

With 74hp and 50lb/ft torque, you should be ok with city riding.

Good luck with your decision.

Note that most of BMW's bike do have two options for a seat... the normal and a low one...

For example:



The problem???

Price...

But they do look very good, and now they dropped the tele-lever and put regular forks on it... Good brake power too... But again, the problem is affording it...

I would highly recommend riding an FZ-07 (and 09) before plunking down the money to buy one. As nice as they seem they are quite budget feeling and really not well sorted (especially the 09, but the 07 is as well). I wanted to love one or the other and didn't.

At all.

Though seat height is not a big factor for me.
