Time for a new bike

So its about that time to sell the katana and get a new ride. She's good,but I'm bored,and want something with more power,and get up and go. Rode this poor bike into the ground,been riding for about 2 years now,with 23k on the katana. I've been looking into the speed triple R, 11' gsxr 750,and sv 650. I ride everyday by means of communting to work,ride for fun,and 2 up often. Gotta have something reliable,strong, and can take some twisties. Love the streetfighters, but the 750 caught my eye,but I'm unsure it can meet my demands comfortably. Any insight guys?

If you can afford a 2011 GSXR 750 why do you even consider the SV650?

Just forget it and focus on whether you want comfort and good power (speedtriple) or just more power (gsxr750)...

The yammi and hona...eehhhh...not feelin it. I mean thanks for the input..just not feelin it. I looked at the 1000kawi ormandd,niiceee. Lol yea surge,I've been leanin tward the speed triple r for a good min now. I like the hyper motards for sum reason,and street fighters. But the hypertards don't have a lot of topend. More of a fun track bike I get from them. Speed triple just seems more practicle for my kinda use....fck it,I've been tempted to get a buell. Sick bikes!

the triumph is a good bike, but the 650 may be cheeper overall for a commuter.

Some days I do miss that unique sound of the triple.

My vote goes to the S3. Awesome torque, handles great, and relatively comfortable. But if you cant swing the price, I did stumble on this today on craigslist.

Don't count the FZ6 out. I've rode the FZ and the SV and I honestly like the FZ better when I consider that I want to put a lot of miles on the bike.
