I like this one.

But then again, I liked the ST too.
However, after my Ninja 650, I would have probably picked the F800R
this time 'round.

This would probably change my mind.
But.. if I had the money for a new one.. I'd probably end up getting the
Suzuki GSX1250FA and still have change left.
Too scared of maintainance costs.

A local magazine once did a comparo between the ninja 650r and f800st
re: running costs.. The regular maintenance was twice as expensive on
the 800 at our dealer compared to the 650R.

It was more expensive then any of the 1000-1300 ST bikes from Japan.

I'd like the weight and MPG figures of the F800 better tho.., but considering
the above, I'd probably have a cheaper running bike with the 1250 even with
50% more fuel used per mile.

Did they fix the engine on the F800?
There was quite a bit of them blowing up in 2006 or 2007 here, and
some sort of knocking issue.
