    Rode home a new FZ-07

    I as really surprised how fast that bike arrived. It was only announced for the states very recently.

    My impression is that it will be a really fun bike in the way the SV650 was. Simple, good motor, light (and very compact). It has a very upright seating position as well. I do detect a bit of budgetary constraint in the suspension department but that is true of the bigger brother the FZ-09 as well.

    Overall at $6999.00 is a good bike. It will give the Ninja 650 a run for sure but its a naked bike rather than the half faired Ninja.

    The FZ-07 is only $1K less than the FZ-09?

    Seems like you get a lot more bike for the money with the triple, no?

    Yes the 9 is more bike. The 7 is more compact feeling and while down on power still enough to have fun. Its been a while since I rode the 9 but the 7 feels very nimble and almost honda Gromish. Not exactly but it feels little. It may suit newer or smaller riders. I would do the 9 myself but my friend came back loving the 7 and said he wants one.

    Did someone hit it with an ugly stick ????????????????????? I guess being 63 I'm old school for how a bike should look... The kids may love it though. OMM.

    i like the looks of both the 9 and the 7...only about 17 pounds difference in weight (397 vs 414) and around 40hp difference in power (74 vs 115)

    It takes a bit of work and upgrades to get 115 at the rear wheel on a dyno. Bone stock they usually range from 105 to 107. After adding an aftermarket exhaust and re-flashing the CPU, 115 is possible but not guaranteed. I have hands-on experience with the 09. Great bike for the money.
