Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For all out speed, flick ability, I got an FZ 09 but my Bonnevilles ( I've had 4) are just outright pleasant and enjoyable at any speed.

It's funny you said nothing about beauty on the FZ, it is a great performance machine, but lacks everything in character, as does every Japanese bike, I say the main reason majority are here "for the ride"

I am actually thinking of adding an adventure bike to the mix and a KTM is of course one that I will look at. I plan on keeping my Bonneville as well.

Thanks. It's a great bike. Your wife will love it. I'm biased, but I think it's the best looking Bonnie yet.
