Need new bike suggestions
I currently have an '05 Suzuki SV650S, while this has been a great learner bike, I'm ready to move up in a big way. My two biggest complaints about the SV are that it is pretty uncomfortable(seat is like a rock) and it really lacks power to me.
When I talk about lacking power, many people will always say it has plenty of power....blah blah blah. Well I am a total power junkie, I grew up on dirt bikes and I had my fair share of 500 two strokes and a yz426f. Thats the kind of power I want, when you twist the throttle it goes NOW!!!
I'm also a big guy, 5'10 about 250lbs.
Now for what I'm looking for, the ideal bike would be something like a yzf600r but with an R1 engine. I just can't find anything like this.
My buddies all pretty much have 600 or 1000 supersports, so I'd like for the bike to be able to at least keep up with them in the twisties too.
The bikes I'm currently looking at are the Triumph Sprint, Daytona, Yamaha FZ1( the 06 specs look nice but I don't care for the colors), Kawi ZX10, ZX12, ZZR12, Aprilia Tuono. I'm open to any other sugestions.
From what I've seen, I like the Sprint the best. But I'm not sure it has the grunt that I want. Also it seems to have subpar suspension. But it is nice and comfy.
I sat on a GSXR1000 and it just felt way to cramped, when I'd get in a crouch it was like the windscreen was touching my head. I'm also not completely into the naked bikes, but some of them don't look bad.
Any opinions on the above bikes are welcome
Thanks for any help on this subject.
