Green light to buy a new bike
« on: Jan 22, 2013, 04:37:48 »
Ok, I'm going to buy a new bike and I would like some help from the wealth of experience here  ;)

I have 2 I like, the Kawasaki and the Yamaha. Both spec's read very similar but is there anything else I need to know?

"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

The Yamaha's looking pretty dated next to the Kawa.  But, if I were looking into a naked, I'd try to snag an Aprilia Tuono...so I'm not much help.

Esthetically to me the Yamaha looks more simple & has cleaner lines, the Kawasaki is a bit overdone & busy.
Mechanically I have read nothing on these bikes.

Have you test ridden either of these bikes? That usually make my decision for me.

Having sold bikes(and vis-a-vis...ridden them), I have to say I prefer the Yammie. There's a tremendous amount of bang for your buck...and Yamaha has a tendency to "over-build" their bikes, in a great way.
Some will, some won't, so what...who's next?
