so I'm looking to upgrade to a bigger, and more powerful bike than my 2006 Honda 599 (Hornet). I'm 6'2" (185 lbs) and the 599 is uncomfortably small for me, and not quite torquey enough for my liking!
I live in North Van and do mainly leisure and sport riding (no traffic commuting). I tend to ride up cypress and seymour a lot, Whistler and Pemberton, Horseshoe Bay, and over to Balcara and Port Moody. I like the naked bike, streetfighter style.
In looking for an upgrade I have come across both the Aprilia Shiver and Dorsoduro and really like them both. I know the shiver is a bit more like the 599 in that it is similar riding position, general style, but instead with a 750cc V-twin which sounds like what i need. I know it is bigger than the 599 too so better for my size. I also know that the Dorsoduro is a hypermotard and not a full street bike, but from the sounds of it in reviews, it is fun, just as fast on the road as the shiver and handles really well.
so judging on my size, where I ride, and everything else, which one would make more sense. In addition, what are the main differences between the bikes asides from looks? how differently do they act? Etc. any info would be great!
