Next bike for the Lady

Shes getting bored of the CBR 250R.

Few options come to mind for me:

Ducati MOnster 821
MV Agusta Dragster
Yamaha fz-09
Yamaha fz-07
KTM Duke 690
Triumph Street Triple R

Naked, Light, Nimble...but more power then a 250.

I recommend the FZ-07 on a budget, the Monster if you want to spend the extra dough.

See if you can get a discount on a Monster 796. Single sided swingarm, air cooled, 40 pounds lighter, better looks.

According to your profile you still have a speedy. Let her try that and see what she likes. I'd honestly try to get her on as many bikes as I could and let her choose the one she wants. She is the one riding it after all.

2015 KTM 200 xc-w
2012 Triumph Street Triple
2008 KTM 144sx
2005 TTR125e (wife's)






FYI----Best thing is let her sit on as many bikes as possible so she can decide which feels best to her. Got my "older" wife a 2012 Triumph street triple 675 and she absolutely loves it, wouldn't trade it for anything. She's 5'6" tall and the bikes light, nimble and plenty of power and she touhes the ground fine and is very comfortable riding it. Remember, happy wife, happy life......

G650GS, F700GS, F800GS, R1200GS, depending how tall she is. And yes, I do like them beemers, ABS is a very good thing in general. In fact I like it so much that no bike that doesn't have ABS is even being considered.
