I think I pay about $150 a year for my SV650. If you can get insurance for $30 a month I'd like to talk to your agent!!!

If Kawi put a cushy passenger seat on the Z1K, or updated the styling of the ole Zrex. they would gain a whole new demographic in the 30-40+ age range. I already have a 600, and am looking for a cheap sportourer that I can use for week-end getaways with the wife. The ZRex, the FZ1, SV are ok, but does not do it for me, the ST3 and other classic sportourers are too expensive, or ungainly...

better quit or you'll end up buying one. I rode one a couple of weeks ago. If was in the cruiser market that would be the one in black and shiney

I ride a CBR1100XX Blackbird. I am 54. My insurance with a $500.00 deductible and 500/500 libability is $502.00 per year. Live in Illinois.

YES! YES! and yes. I'd like to see the same headlights and exhaust as on the R1 too.

Great article. Both my wife and I own new R1s and couldn't be happier. We have found they are incredibly light and easy to handle, you can ride them all day in the city or out on country roads. The only problem for sports touring is the lack of tie down points for luggage.

Always jealous of the price you pay in the US, ours cost $20k Australian on road, but never realised how frightful your insurance is. Swings and roundabouts!

I've done crazier things. The more I look at the Triumph lineup, the more I like. Wait a minute! What am I saying?? I'm a Harley guy!

Nope. Sounds cool, but I love my FZ as is. I do a bit of touring on it and the weight helps when its windy. And raising the pegs would be mucho painful for me... I like to stretch.

I've got a secret for you. With some luggage a 1200 Bandit just makes a dandy sporttourer. And it's cheaper than a 600.
