Asking which of these bikes would make the best urban/suburban vehicle, is like asking which corpse at the morgue would make the best dance partner. Get a Speed Triple and call it a day.

Default I have to agree. .

Any of the current standards is a better choice. I have a Multistrada in FL, and it's perfect. Well, other than the brick of a seat. There are a lot of choices these days. A lot of the new standards handle great, and provide a lot more comfort for all the straight flat roads. The other upside is heat. My 954 would roast my nuts in FL, especially in traffic. The Strada runs much cooler(for the rider).

He didn't say he was planning to tow stalled cars.

Just imagine sitting in the endless S Florida traffic on a 95 degree day sitting on a Wing. Do they come with A/C now?

Just imagine sitting in the endless S Florida traffic on a 95 degree day sitting on a GSXR750 or a CB1000RR with all the heat those high output engine generate.

Default Get one of those new Buell Lightning CITYX bikes

If you want something that can squirt through a tight urban/suburban area then you need of of those new Buell Lightning CITYX bikes.



Sean himself said it's one really fast bike in really tight enviroments!



Cut through traffic, parking lots, etc. etc.

I don't think a Buell is on par with either of those other bikes. Buell are much better than they were a few years ago, but equal to Japanese machines, they are not!

I live in South Florida and a liter bike is the only way I'd go if I had to buy a new bike. 600s and 750s are cool if you are on the track or have twisties. Since we have no twisties, go all out on the juice and get a 1000. The only way you can have fun in SF is at top flight. Just be careful of the idiots in SF. I got into an accident in April and probably won't be back on a bike until next year because of it.

My son has the new Suzuki GSX-R750 and I have ridden it once...it's a lot of motorcycle and well put together, better and just as powerful a motorcycle as his past 1999 Yamaha R1. However, when we ride together he disappears as though he's been catapulted into another dimension and then I catch up with him about twenty minutes later (quite honestly it sucks riding with him...of course I'm usually on a cruiser when we head out). However, the one complaint he has made to me is that it does not like slow riding as it produces too much heat for him. His bike is a California model. He does love the damn thing though.



BTW, I've never cared for the graphics on the GSX models, "Can you say loud?"
