Help me out with..Which bike?

hey guys, sorry if this is a re-post but I think this is a little more personal question than most "which starter bike do i get?"

So I just sold my 07 ducati monster 695 in order to keep my 08 gsxr 600.

The comfort of the ducati is amazing. even tho the gsxr is known to be pretty comfortable for a street bike.. I really like being a hooligan in the parkin lots and around town. in fact i almost got a super motard..

maybe there is a bike out there I don't know about just would like a good mix of hooligan style of the ducati monster naked bike.... and also the speed/looks qualities like the 08 gsxr 600 has.

I've been looking around and the price range would have to be around 4 - 6k

I looked at the cb1000r but its just too expensive :/ looking to pay cash

Street triple is out of his range, much less a speed triple... unless you are going fairly old.

This was my first thought. Maybe a Vrod headlight?

Not bad... but could probably start with an older SV650 and mod it and come out ahead. Gladius just doesn't offer enough extra for the additional money (unless you are afraid of modding). And maybe they are selling cheaper than I expect.

Maybe one of the Honda CBs?

This is a quote from someone who knows what's up.

"Buying a place doesn't matter for buying bike you just have to consider some points like functionality, support, portability, price and material." - vennyroger

Just trying to help out, I'm sure he hasn't seen this thread or he would have posted.

BTW Z1000 FTW!
