I have had my hornet for 3 and half years and want something different. I want another naked bike but im not sure which. I don't ride ridiculously fast on ride out, I don't exceed 100. I do most of my riding in country roads and enjoy throwing the bike around and want a good handling bike. Im torn between getting a fz6 or moving onto something a with a bit more grunt.
I really like the top end rush of the hornet but im finding the rear shock (its a 98) is now very worn and the bike is pogoing around a bit hence looking for a change. I want something with a bit more midrange.
I was looking at a sv1000 however I have read from a lot of reviews that it doesn't "feel" as fast as a inline 4 600 even if it is, due to the linear powerband. Is this the case compared to a hornet?
If the Sv is no good would a fz1, z1000 be any good or would I not get them into their stride without exceeding 100.
