    I just cant help myself, who wants to do an intervention.

    The VFR800 is up for grabs, its a whole lot of bike that i dont need and to be honest more power than i'd ever use on the street.

    So as in good old fashion and i'm fond of it, i got myself a 2013 GT650s for a really good price.
    Gotta do a few little things and tweak some bits, but overall will make a good bike.

    Now can anybody say any thing bad about these Suzuki SV 650 V twin copies?
    they are an awesome powerful bike. Same thing going for Hyosung's 250 V twin.

    Its not the most powerful 650cc there is, but the power it matches the bike really well. certainly no slouch but its not like the vfr800 either.

    Interesting fact, the sv motor was originally built by hyosung on suzuki's designs for suzuki. When that deal ended / fell apart, suzuki redesigned their motor and continue to build it into the vstrom 650/sv650x, hyosung themselves continued developing the original sv design.

    It also uses delphi ecu and sensors, tps can be substituted for a hayabusa tps, etc...

    The hyo would have been a much better bike with a aluminum frame rather than the steel frame, but the steel frame is solid as.

    IMO v-twin sports style bikes is one thing lacking in the market where this did well for what they are.
