Cheers. I knew you would reply to this thread lol


I fixed it, of course it's a Suzuki...




Yeah, I like them lively but not too racey, if you know what I mean. So I think naked bikes like these would fit me perfectly well.


Not impressed by the English style or the Austrian quality? wink

"Big fuck off motards" lol ?



I'm not the race type, it's just too clumsy and heavy for my area and city. I imagine that being loads of fun if you rent a racecourse or if it's really one of your major hobbies, but I just want to ride around from time to time, being happy to put the throttle to the metal from time to time.

Yeah i know what you mean, but you know me i am a race freak!

As far as motards, those are not my thing. The power delivery is just not my style. The 620 is a single cylinder, that means big lumps of power not smooth revvy power. That basically means buckets of torque but lower HP. The 620 kicks out about 50hp, to put that in perspective my 250 race bike puts out more power than that but delivers it differently. The 620 will wheelie EVERYWHERE and you will have trouble keeping the front end down.
All about what you like i guess

Yeah, my concern with the Duke is that it may be too difficult to tame for my liking.

What do you think about the Hornet? Too average and stereotype 'first-time naked bike user'-style?

And the Triumph? Looks very smooth to me.



I once had a quick ride on a small Bandit and I enjoyed it very much. Your opinion?


Thanks for you replies and help!

Hornets are communter bikes, easy to ride, torquey and all the same. If you want fun then don't buy any of them mate, hornet and bandit are very much the same.
What are the rules there for restrictions when you have passed your test?

With a car licence (you can get this with 18) you are automatically allowed to drive a 125. For everything above that you need the extra "A-licence" (for motobikes, you can get this with 18 too).

Well yeah. What i mean is that all these bikes are beyond your 125 permit. Here there is a restriction on power for 2 years after you pass. Do you have anything like that?

I know they are beyond my limit; that's why I said I was starting to save some money, because I'd like to buy one in a few years when I get my A-licence.

There is no such thing in Austria.

Then my suggestion is ride a 125 for a while and find your feet, fall off a few times and then make up your mind! lol
