Hi Guys... new to here so hopefully I'm posting in the right place for some advice.
Background: Im 27 years old, live and work in London so use my bike for commuting through traffic each day. I have been riding a Yamaha Xmax 125 for the last two years and just passed my full test so looking to upgrade to a proper machine.
Also when I was 18 I rode a Honda NSR 125 for two years so have some experience on geared bikes.
I dont want a sports bike as I dont think its worth it in London, and I would probably kill myself... but I do want something exciting, reliable, but also practical.
I really like the Naked style bikes... below is a list of the ones that I am looking at and I was wondering if anyone could give any pointers / pro's / cons as to which I should be looking at or any that I should instantly cross of the list.
Kawazaki ER6N (2013)
Triumph Street Triple R (2013)
Honda CBF600 Hornet (2013)
Ducati Monster 696 (2013)
as well as the above im also open to the following, but was worried about these being a bit big for a beginner bike, so let me know your thoughts on these too.
Kawazaki Z800 (2013)
CBR 600F (2013)
VFR 800 (2013)
as you can see I am confused and have literally listed most bikes, just don't want to make the wrong call and regret it.
Any help and support would be much appreciated guys.
