Looking at 2016 FJ-09 and GSX-S 1000 very seriously. Will be using it for city commute and weekend trips. Wifey might ride her own CBR or join me as pillion very occasionaly.
Did test ride of Fj-09 twice. First time didn't like it much but second test ride after a gap of a month, found it pretty good.
Test rode GSX-S 1000 twice and like it well except that throttle issue. Are there any fixes already for it on brand new bike or shall I wait for 2017.
Questions: Based on above what you guys suggest. Should I pull the the trigger on 2016 GSX-S? Look somewhere else? or wait for 2017 (its Almost August and Winter is coming...)? Any other brand/bike suggestions or things members want to advice me here be highly appreciated.
