Hence the higher insurance rates.

Hope you're OK.

The 2017 MT09 press release videos are showing up on youtube, it will be interesting to see what the price is.

Not sure if the styling is going to win many hearts, i'll have to see it in the flesh and dream what could be done with the licence plate arm bit.

Still have a month of L's to go, hard to resist dreaming / planning what my next bike will be once on a full licence.

44Teeth did a really good review on it. Seems like they really hit it out of the park with the addition of the: LED headlights, Slipper* clutch, standard ABS, better front suspension, and a tweaked seat.

I test road the 2016 version and the twitchy throttle was not completely gone but definitely not bad. Hopefully that has been perfected finally.

And yea ,that rear license plate holder doesn't do it for me either lol. Need to put a few thousand more miles on my CBR but looking to possibly pick one of these up late this year.

What about the Yamaha XSR900 as a third alternative upgrade?

I was considering the FZ 07, and test rode one at Daytona bike week last spring. More power than I need!
Also hear in USA, anti lock brakes weren't an option till the 2017 model.
So I went with the cb500fa, I like that it only requires regular 87 octane, and gets better fuel mileage!
Also may keep me out of trouble with the law, and speeding tickets.

This is on my short list along with the Ducati scrambler when i get my full licence in around a years time as my GF is going retro / cafe with her styling and most of my riding will be as a hobby with her.

Hahaha, this is funny. The thread is titled 'Who went from a cb500 to a FZ-07 or FZ-09'. Well you may as well add..
R1, ZX14, H2R and Jet Rocket bike.

People...THESE ARE ALL DIFFERENT BIKES. You need to know what your desire is and what capabilities are.

Gentleman (and ladies)....choose your bikes and start your engines.
