I had my bike stolen last month so i had to decide what kind of ride would replace it. There were certain things i wanted in this bike that were must-haves such as comfortable riding position, decent weather protection, and a very reliable motor.
My past bikes were 3 cruisers,one scooter and 1 dual-sport and i wanted to try the sportier side of motorcycles so my focus became the sport-touring side of bikes. I looked at the VFR and the YZF600 but for one reason or another i was drawn to the Katana 750.
I know that this bike does not get a lot of respect amongst sport riders but for my needs it is perfect, good riding position for my aging back and i really like the engine and overall handling of the bike. I have no desire for "stunting" i just want a good bike that will last me a long time and be fun to ride.
