My First Post: FZ-07 or 2018 Street Triple
Hey guys I am seriously considering buying a 2018 Street Triple R model. I've been on the fence about either getting one of these or a new FZ-07. I currently have a Kawi ZX6 and ZX10 but I'm used to the inline 4 powerband/delivery and want something with much more torquey and giddiup for low down acceleration and wheelieing around town but also longer distance riding. I definitely prefer the triple and I can afford either one but I want to know how do people feel about the low to midrange on it compared to the FZ. I know people rave about the Yamaha low end for the fun. If its as good/better as the FZ ill go buy a triple tomorrow without hesitation just want some user feedback from real life riders not only big time motorcycle reviews. what do you guys think, does it have the guts I think it does to be a hooligan machine? From what I'm seeing and reading on paper it should exceed the FZ.
