Hi Guys, I have been follwoing you guys for a while and now decided to post. I have to pull the trigger on the bike. Here are some criterias: 1) Cool! 2) Reliable (i would like to keep it for 10 years), however I do not think i will put more than 10k/year on it. 3) I do not want it to be overly heavy 4) It will spend 80% of the time on the pavement/highways, 20% off. 5) My wife will ride with me 70% of the time 6) I do not want to close the door on gravel roads and some very mild off road. 7) New..... This is discussable I do not want to go too old (1-2 years are ok) 8) Budget - hopefully under 10,000 new. 9) I would really like ABS. 10) Heated grips are a nice addon 11) Forgot! Upright seating for a tall guy - I am 6.3 So I guess I am looking at the dual mode bikes. Here is what i have looked at so far: 1) BMW G650GS - 12,500 all in, ABS, Heated Grips, Central Stand, 3 year warranty 2) BMW F700GS, ABS, Heated Grips, Central Stand - 13,500, 3 year warranty 3) Honda NC700XA - 12,500, 1 year warranty 4) Kawi Versys 650 - 12,300 - no ABS, 1 year warranty 5) Kawi Versys 1000 - 12,500, ABS+Traction+2 Bags, 2 year warranty, 2012 6) Suzuki ???? - 10500, 1 year warranty, but I do not fit Anything else I am missing? So besides your opinions i would like to ask few things: 1) All but BMW G650GS have more than 1 cylinder. How does longevity of the motor compare between BMW and everything else? 2) How important are heated grips for YOU? 3) How important central stand is for you? 4) Opinions on the warranty? I know that Versys1000 is a different animal but it is such a good deal that I am still thinking about it. I am afraid that i will not be able to take it to ANY offroad. However for riding 2up is the best option (agree?).
