Wink FZ-07 My next one or addition?

Since the FZ-07 is going to be available in the US, I am thinking of getting it. Insurance is not too expensive for the Versys and the FZ-07, should i have both?

It's really nice having multiple bikes so I say, add a bike.

You might want to consider the FZ-09 too. They're pretty close as far as weight is concerned and the additional power would be certainly be nice.

I have a Triumph Street Triple R and the sound and power from the triple is awesome. It's also very smooth and essentially, vibration free.

I was very close to getting the FZ 09 over the V, but the whole drive by wire thing (jerky throttle response) and the fact that every review talks about how it makes you want to raise hell led me to the more reserved V. I really don't regret it at all.

Yeah, the FZ-09 would probably get me into trouble. I think the 07 will satisfy the itch to be a hooligan once in a while. I will have the V for my touring and adventure rides if they come up. I'm about 5'8", 174 lbs, so don't need a large displacement motorcycle for touring.

I would prefer to have two very different bikes. If I got another bike it would be something light like WR250X.

I think the 07 may be too much like the V In many ways. But then again, so what, more toys are more toys!
