    Hi all

    Will be looking to get a new bike in the coming months, Been riding for 8+ years so have had a variety of bikes, each one giving me just as much fun as the last..

    Previous bike:

    SV650
    STREET TRIPLE (Had 2 of these)
    GSXR600
    CBR600RR

    Looking at the MT07 but not sure if i would get bored quickly with it, so looking to see if anyone on here has one or rode one...

    Im tempted to just stick with my original choices on my next bike and get either the MT09 or another Street Triple

    Cheers

    Duke 790? That seems pretty different compared to what you've previously ridden.

    I had the MT07 for a brief spell.

    I don't think you could get bored of it, the low down torque is awesome.

    Mine was about a year old and had surface rust on the swingarm already, so watch out for that if you're going to look at them.

    I had one for 8 weeks, it was fine but I got bored quickly and wanted more power again, I have the MT-09 now and wish I’d have gone for that first and skipped the 07.

    Get the Mt09 or Mt10 . I would rather have more power and for me to moderate than have not enough and have to change bikes . I think the Mt07 although fun wont match yer previous bikes

    You've done the 600cc thing to death... I'd get the MT-10 if you've got the budget and like the look of the 09.

    Have you looked at an XSR900? Pretty much an MT09 just looks different, apparently the suspension and fuelling is marginally better (so they say).

    I guess looks wise it's a bit of a marmite bike but I love it.

    It's just not for me, suspension let's it down so much, i was actually thinking earlier today, if they put the engine from the 09 into the frame of the 07, it would be great.

    Now i need to decide what i'm going for next, i'm thinking Honda CB1000r or Kawasaki Z800.
