That's our thinking as well.
We feel similarly. The sportbikes that are being put out by the manufacturers are such high performance machines right out of the box......it is crazy. They are a super platform for customization. You can seel the body work on ebay.....we've made as much as $1000 on all the plastic in good shape.....you can turn around & invest that $ back into parts/paint....whatever & make a standout streetbike that handles like a dream.......the upright riding position created by the moto-cross handlebars is like putting a longer handle on a whip! This bike is a fantastic street ride.....& it can still hold its own on the track.....
Dave, my husband, just rode the bike at Road America in a track day....
He's about 240 w/o leathers & he was smokin guys on fairinged sportbikes......many of them had him on the straight-aways due do his non-typical rider size & lack of fairings....but the corners were the great equalizer....& she came out fast & quick.
We believe streetfighters are on the rise in the USA. We will all be seeing a lot more of these bikes!
