I'm tempted by the new FZ-07. 58 mpg, quick torque monster, more comfortable seat. Better scenario I would have both, but I am somewhat considering selling the Grom for it. :eek:

Not looking for more HP than the fz-07 at nearly half the fuel economy. I've thought some about the -09 just because it's not that much more than the -07 but from what been reading about the -07 it will be enough for me.

I believe the fz09 still gets 45 mpg....

Yeah looking I've seen on Fuelly a range from 38-50 mpg. But I just don't think I want that extra power.

Throttle response settings, not so much to limit the power just change how responsive the throttle is. And it reverts to standard every time you start it, I would prefer it to be on the least responsive B mode automatically.

I also dislike how the cluster is offset on the FZ-09, I prefer symmetrical things like the cluster on the FZ-07.

Case closed, I like the FZ-07 more than the -09

No it dumps power in b mode, someone did dyno results, if I were able to scoop up a bike, id grab it in a heartbeat. Although I did see an fz07 in traffic and both look absolutely killer

Grom is gone (money needed) but come spring time might pick up a FZ-07 or maybe even the FZ-09.

FZ-09 just because of this. Dat yellow paint scheme!

Yup, and I had always wanted an SV650. So many bikes, not enough money.

i'm crushing over the new Ducati Scrambler too.

Especially the Urban X model
