Just thought I would follow up on what happened with my bike purchase.
I got an SV 650 in the end. 2005 with low kms. It went right into storage as it is very much deep winter here. Cant wait till April to get her out on the road!
Nice buy. I'm very much a fan of the consistent power across the power band with the SV as opposed to the feeling of the power spooling up before you get any kick with the Ninja.
