I am struggling making a decision between getting the 675 RX or the S1000R right now.
I got good deals for both here. both low milage, top specs and 1-2 years warranty left.
price difference about 3500$.
I used to ride a z1000 but it is been a while since I owned a bike and I fear that maybe the power of the s1000R might even get in the way for someone reentering the world of riding specifically and for street use in general.
I am sure it is the overall better bike with probably better value for money and I am sure I will grow into its powerband.
But somehow I just dig the triple
Just felt really good on the short stint I could try it and I think it has just enough power.
My Pros and cons would be...
+ more light and nimble
+ bit cheaper maintance I reckon
+ more character
+ better looking
- no real power rush
- unusable for pillion riding maybe?(seems cramped)
+ electronics for comfort and safety: DDC, cruise control, Riding modes, traction control
+ overall more recent development
- I heard the s1000r gets a burning hot frame (I am currently in tropical Thailand)
- bad turn radius
- not a real looker for me
- not the best service here (I heard)
I kinda think I wanna get the STR first and then maybe sell it later if I really need that 1000cc.
Actually even feel more attracted to the new CB1000R, but it won't be launched here before August/September.
I just think that a buying and selling and buying means losing money and the beamer is a really good deal now. Well that's how it is I guess.
In the end the triple should not be a bike that anyone ever regretted buying and riding...
But maybe someone wants share some more thoughts
