FZ-09 seems preferable over the SR, I'm thinking. Also thinking the FZ-07 (We hope.) is looking really sweet for the everyday, anywhere, economical, run-around Versys replacement. Very nice numbers for the task. Interested in price and mpg's. I'd guess in the ball parks of $6500-7000 and 60-65 mpg. I'd love an FZ-09R, also. Time? Cost? Actual improvements? Worth the wait? Ah, the draw of the game. Will they neuter the bike a bit in the upcoming annual "refinements?" How much will the price go up? OTOH, nice suspension and sweet fueling should have already happened. Nothing fancy, mind you, but this is 2013; quality suspension, brakes, and fuelling should be a given. Easy enough to fix and/or ride around, I'm thinking, again.
