Need help on decided which bike to next!
« on: 07/25/17 02:51PM »
Ive had a honda shadow kawasaki zx9r cbr1000rr and just had to see by baby the 09 r1 raven pass away. I really having trouble on deciding what to get next. All I know as its going to be used and under $10k. I was looking at the ducatis, particularly the hypermotard 1100 evo sp. And started looking at other naked bikes. I kind of want something new, but afraid of missing out on that r1 with the crossplane engine. Please hellp y'all.


Also, I would be using it a lot for commute. Because I hate caging it.

Under $10k; crossplane crank; naked; new....Yamaha FZ09 checks out all your boxes.

I'd suggest if you can hold off for a few months, a used '17 FZ10 may turn up on a dealer lot. 

Crossplane crank = yes, cruise control = yes, naked styling = yes, more comfortable than an R1 = yes.

Id be looking at the tuono. The v4 has a similar feel/sound as the crossplane motor.

If you love the R1, FZ-10 seems the way to go.

If you can stretch your budget a little, you may find a 2016 leftover Tuono as well for close to $10k.  Arguably the most exciting naked bike on the market today.

The hyper is a total hooligan and will cause you endless run ins with the law, don't buy one. 😊

+1 for the FZ-09 or even the XSR900, especially for commuting. The triple has a great feel (though I haven't ridden a crossplane I4).  Smaller bike than the '10, torque all through the RPM range, and 26k mile valve check intervals. Plus it'll be something different than what you've ridden before.
