Long story short I'm looking for something new for the summer.
I've been riding a 2009 Ninja ZX-6R since August, stacked about 20,000 on it since then.
My options are...
2007 KTM Super Duke - Or - 2010 Kawasaki Z1000.
I've already got my mind made up on which is superior, and it's obvious.
Unfortunately it's not a matter of which is superior, because the Z1000 will cater to my abilities, and likely give me some room to grow.
The Duke is absolutely, 100% out of my skillset and I know for a fact I wont be using it even close to it's full ability until late this season, or even late next year.
That said, the price for both works out to within $5 of each other after trading my Ninja in.
The decision might seem obvious to some, but I can't decide.
I'm hoping some of the wiser more experienced riders here can give a logical opinion and point me in the right direction.
And if you must know, I do have a fair chunk of experience on literbikes(Granted never having owned one.) Not as much as the middleweight class, but enough to get started on one this season.
