Hi guys!

I need to buy a new bike. In fact it will be my first bike although I have been riding other bikes for the past year. I've ridden a GS500, KLR650, CBR250, V-star, and my GF ninja 300. So I have ridden a few different bikes for a total of a couple thousand miles and I am fairly confident I know what I’m looking for. I love sports bikes but after sitting on a gixxer 600 and a zx-6r I know I can't live with that...I love going for long trips and it's far too uncomfortable. So I am looking for a 600 ish ''sport touring bike''.

I was about to pull the triger on a CBR650F but realised how expensive it was! And being a new bike there is also very few honest reviews out there.

Here (in canada) you can still buy the SV650SF (fully faired). The dealer I visited is asking 6500$ for the ABS version as an ‘’end of season deal’’. The red thing is about 3k$ more at 9500$ with abs. It is also 500$ more than an aprilia shiver/Fz-09 and about 1500$ more than a GSX650F,ninja 650R, FZ6R.

Is it THAT good? I mean, 500$ better than a FZ-09??
The sv650 is an ''old'' bike but there is a boat load of aftermarket parts available and for 3000$ I can buy handle bar risers, corbin seat, luggage and exhaust and still be more than 1K$ under the cost of the CBR!

So what you think? Is the CBR worth the extra money?
