Default Just had an SV650S will I be disappointed with a Yamaha FZ6?

I had an SV650S and absolutely loved it until a driver cut me off and I laid it down. It ended up being totaled so I have to get another bike. I've called around looking for another sv650s but noone seems to have any or they're outrageously priced and that's the only reason they're still available. I've started to look at the Yamaha FZ6 and I have enough with the insurance check to go out and get the FZ6 right now. Should I really wait to find another SV somewhere, because I don't know when I would be able to get one, or should I get the FZ6? Thanks!

Did you look at the KTM Super Duke? Those have some character.

Test drive it and find out for yourself. If it's pre-owned, then go to a dealer and test drive one if the previous owner won't let you. NOONE ELSE can tell you what you will be disappointed with...they're not YOU.

I think you will be very happy with one. I agree with looking at the Honda 599 and also look at the Triumph Speed Four.Good luck!

The FZ6 generates its power at higher RPMs than the SV650. It may seem a little anemic in the 5k-8k range that you are probably used to riding around in. Above 8k, the inline will feel a little more powerful than the SV. Truthfully, the SV is hard to beat and I would look towards another and skip the FZ6.John
