Hey guys. No this isint one of those "do you think a literbike is a good first bike?" threads. I just wanted some opinions on what to get for my 3rd bike this spring.
Ive owned a cbr F3 and a 2005 R6 which i just got rid of due to financial reasons. Now looking through the classifieds ive seen some preaty decent deals on 97 srads and a few 97-98 fireblades.
Ive ridden my buddies 03 R1 and what I really liked is that extra torque that seems to be all over the place. Especially on long trips you don't have to wring the bike out in the upper revs like on a 600cc. They are great on the twisties but those long stretches of highway makes it a big fatigueing having it revved out constantly.
I was leaning more toward the srad, but from anyone who has owned one does it have that torque im looking for or is it all still in the upper revs?
For the fireblade will this bike knock me on my ass or is it preaty forgiving given my experiance with 600's already. I only have the 03 R1 to compare and i diddn't mind it at all, but still not really sure.
Thanks for the input guys!
