Next up, a late 90s ZX7r.
The late 90s zx models are sweet!

That bike is gorgeous! I call dibs whenever you feel like selling it!

Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon.

I lol'd at the kick start, haven't seen a bike with one of those in ages, of course haven't been around many old bikes lately. Did it have a compression release, or were you actually able to kick start it?

Use to have a 1968 BSA 441 and that thing would send your knee up into the air if it back fired tryin to kick start it. Got me so afraid of the back fire, I use to always roll it down a hill to bump start it. Fortunately lived in Dana Point, CA with plenty of hills.

SUZUKI SV 650 2003-2009

Plug and play on the SV. Just swap out fork oil possibly. Set my sag and go do track days during the summer hopefully.

The SV is getting a full exhaust to replace the Delkevic, Penske rear shock, Race Tech emulators and springs, and possibly a belly pan

I'm going to wash my bike and clean it up.

Then sell and replace with a Speed Triple, MV F4, Ducati 848, or (by far the leading contender) RC8R.

If you're considering the Speed, I'd suggest you get the Speed Triple R instead of the regular one. The suspension on the regular Speedy is not so great.

Of those choices, I'd probably pick the 848 or the RC8R, though I'd probably buy the 848 in the streetfighter flavor.

I'd be buying a used Speed Triple (cuz they're dirt cheap), so upgrading to an Ohlins suspension would be perfectly feasible.

Main reason I prefer the RC8R to the 848 is that it is (reportedly) a much more comfortable bike. And it looks beastly. 848 SFs are bloody expensive, even used. 2010 RC8s go for $10k.

Not this time. Well... probably not this time. I'm going to be pocketing about 25 grand when I sell my condo, and the gf would be pretty pissed off if I spent a large portion of it on a new bike instead of setting it aside to use towards a future down payment on a house...

BUT, I'm not feeling the whole "relationship" thing lately so that may simplify matters considerably.

I'm not much of a KTM guy. I'd go with the MV personally. Fast by Ferracci isn't that far from me and he is world known in the Ducati & MV Augusta circles.
