Default New bike advise:)

Hi all, so I have just got my full license and want something a bit bigger and more powerful. (Naked with a circular headlight)

I currently have a Fazer 600 2005.

I was looking at either a hornet 900 or an sv1000, they are quite powerful and have the circular headlight that I知 after, though they seem to be hard to find

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Very different bikes with very different engines. . . have a spin on them to see if they suit. not everyone likes a big V-twin

and some people love em, try before you buy, generally a v twin has more low down stomp where a multi has more of a top end.

I have a 900 hornet- twas a jump up from my 600 which was a jump up from the 250 I had before the 125 I started on- in fact over the 5 years after I got my modern bike license I made small jumps- the best thing about the 900 is the sense of grip when you lean it in dry or wet/fast or slow....plus it get up the road in all gears- tis not rr fast but still plenty to worry the gendarmes with- I can easily leave it in 6th gear and not have to change except in town traffic....the hornet is a great all rounder but not great for long motorway journeys when the boredom kicks in you have to hold on from about 120kmh upwards....not that you would ever go that fast.... Best thing its reliable as fcuk.. It was out all winter under a cover only and still started up first time every time. so if you want steady/reliable/minor threat/wheelie capable fun then get the 900... but if you want to test yourself try the SV1000- these bikes are savage... i tested an SV1000s and ever since I have wished I had bought it!!

I recently had a spin on a sv1000. Savage bike. If I had the funds I would get one as a toy straight away.
Btw there is a clean one for sale in a bike shop in Harolds Cross :)

Had a hornet 9 for a while, motor is a peach but the suspension is truly shite... The shock topped out far too easy. No linkage either so it was a straight thud to the spine in saying that it got me penalty points within a week of ownership, sounded the bollocks with a set of carbon pipes so was addictive keeping it in the midrange

Thinking about getting a bike so long as it's mechanically sound that's the main thing. Let me know how much you'd be looking for? Would know then if I'm interested
