PS: I'm toying with the 2021 SX1000...like what I see...would suit for a bit of spirited riding and touring.

Quote from: Manic636 on September 28, 2020, 12:23:31 pmTook the new S1000XR out for a spin today to see if the vibe issues was better, got to say riding position is great, engine is a stonker and vibes are reduced but still enough there to bug me and for Julie she feels it through the grab rails. So Z1000SX is booked for next week..
Amazing getting back on my bike after riding the Xr today, it felt tiny, narrow bars, high pegs and I thought it was comfortable previously lol
You find vibes in every bike.
The XR has been the worst I've come across, yes the SX had them in one spot, the GSXS has them in a couple places but not to the extent of the XR, it's a shame as it's probably the right bike other than that and part of me thinks if I could find a used one where the owner had damped them out then I'd be a happy bunny lol
I never felt it was an issue on the one I had...😊

I would test ride the GT.
KTM are about to their yearly price slash, so you could pick up a bargain.

Jealousy will get you nowhere.
Is there room for a little one?

We'd heard the rumours...

Despite all the issues I've had the GS is probably the best all round bike I've ever owned/ridden (for my style of riding). But I do think the Z1000SX will suit you, I nearly tried one myself.

Due to me not keeping up with what is new in bikes for some considerable time this thread is useless without pics.

PS - Buy the Kwak.

Quote from: Alzo on September 22, 2020, 08:00:35 pmI've looked at loads of You Tube videos on the 2020 SX and I have to say I like what I see...it's a lot of bike for the money...🤔🤔🤔🤔

I know I will love it tbh, loved my old one and the refinements added just make it a very very good prospect that also gets me back on my beloved Kawasaki's LOL..
Like all the colour schemes as I'd love to see the forthcoming blue in the flesh, it is a bike that I could order happily without even riding one.. It is for the competition to impress me enough to look that way and yes VFM plays a part, pcp makes difference monthly smaller than you would think but of course these 'interesting' times are making me cautious or is that my age HAHA
Do it...if 2020 has shown us anything it's live for NOW...👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
