Which Liter Bike ????

I am in the market for a leader bike and I can't decide what model leader bike I want. I am in the 05-07 year range. If I could some advise on which bike I should lean towards it would be a big help.

Thanks

I have not had a bike in the last year but I have 7 year behind me. My past bikes have been 04 z1000 15k , 05 zx10 5k :( rip, 05 636 20k, 07 gsxr 600 stolen, 08 gsxr 600 25k......So I have a little experiance, and am stoked about getting back on a liter bike but I am having a hard time deciding what I want.

Most liter bikes have traction control and power modes now so that is not a big issue with newer bikes, but the older bikes dont have any type of electronic aid and are more tricky on the throttle.

Ya I was in love with my 05 zx10, even thought it only had 5k on it before van took us out (remember ppl carry insurance). The only negative thing with that bike was the power seemed like it hit all at once, it didn't feel smooth at all. 11k + you better hold on lol

I have not been in the bike market in the last year or so and , I am suprised of the price tags of the new liter bikes.....05-07 is going to be in my price range so I can stay in the 5000-8000 price mark. Dream bike, ya RSV4 all day long

all the bikes are good man, all feel great, different, and this thread ends up in hate love kinda !

buy whatever you feel, pick color and appropiate gear (I'm guessing you want to update gear) if you have the funds, try to get a newer bike.
In which you can accomodate the Beemer and the Duc. Crossplane R1 from '09 and up, CBR RR with the ABS brakes, GSXR with the power control (as the others) Ninja --> great looking bike, and the overkiller BMW.
Throw in the Twin haulers for Duc 848-1098.. so at the end, pick any of them, it's not like you're gonna marry her

The power is in your hand. Any liter bike will make a leader if you can take it to the limit.
