Talking Hey from NZ

Hey all, I've had plenty of bikes over the years. Sports to Motards to big cruisers. I'm heading back to Super Naked land after 4 years on a M109r. Good fund but I miss cornering and generally doing everything other than cruising at pace.

I test rode a bunch of bikes today. Aprilia Tuono v4, 1200 Dorsodoro, Yamaha MT09 and the GSX-S1000. Out of all of them I preferred the GSX-s1000. Felt like I could actually use the power and the bike was so much more confidence inspiring whereas the Aprilias were just bonkers and stupid for general street biking. The MT09 is a great little bike although I wondered if it felt too skittish and perhaps might lack power on the open road. Keen on everyone's thoughts on the two. Otherwise I'm almost certain the Suzuki is the go. Welcome everyone's feedback.

I part exchanged my MT09 after only six months for a GSXS.

Youre right the MT09 at full whack only seems to have the same power as the GSXS at 6k RPM.

I would buy the Suzi over the Yam any day of the week.

Reckon you might get some biased views on here, so take my unbiased advice.... BUY THE GSX-S
