If you are 5'7" or taller, like naked bikes, lighter weight at 416 lbs wet, a more upright riding posion than your GIXXER, loads of power and torque, like the looks, and can make a good deal, you will be happy. I like the 2-year warranty compared to most bikes that have 1 year. I think the Street Triple r is one of the best values on the market. Mine has 2300 miles on it, runs smooth as silk, has been completely trouble free, and is perfect for around town and on the freeway. Mileage is only about 30 mpg. For street riding, one of my favorite moves is to merge onto an interstate in 5th gear, find my path and open it up for a few seconds until I hit maybe 100 mph, then back off when I am ahead of everyone around. You really need to hang on to do that but for me it is worth the risk of a ticket, and I don't do it too much. The bike does surprisingly well with no windshield at all. Brakes are tops. The clutch is not great compared to some, and the seat is medium hard, but I have owned 18 bikes, and this is by far my favorite ride ever.
