I've been scouring the interwebz and local dealerships trying to find a suitable replacement for my 2002 Yamaha R6, which I loved.... it was just time to go.
(bought it, drove it and sold it for exactly what I paid for it - couldn't pass up the op to break even)
pics for clicks
loved this bike, but couldn't really ride it for more than 2hrs at a time.
it even had 1.5" higher bar clips on it from the PO.
What I've looked at are too spendy, but to give you an example of what I'm after...
Triumph Street Triple (675cc)
Kawasaki ER6N - haaaaaaaaaaaaate the sound of them, but more upright positioning is what I'm after
requirements/wish list is:
-more upright than the R6
-no twin engine... they just sound loud, not powerful. I loved the note of the R6. The triple sounds pretty awesome, but more $$$ than I want to spend
- under $6000 (used obviously)
- mechanically decent
- naked or full fairing acceptable
the Fazer/FZ Yamaha series is just too dorky/upright for my liking, and this is coming from a yammy fan
Ducati would love to be in the selection, but too much $$$
What suggestions do owners have for me please........
