The reliability ratings are based on failure rates for 4-year-old bikes:

Yamaha/Star (11 percent failure rate)
Honda (12 percent)
Kawasaki (15 percent)
Harley-Davidson (26 percent)
Ducati (33 percent)
BMW (40 percent)
Suzuki (99 percent)

Ok /dbt/ the year is 1976, the Honda CB750 has been largely unchallenged for years but there is finally competition available, the Kawasaki KZ900, Yamaha XS750, Suzuki GS750, Moto Guzzi 850 Le Mans, and Laverda Jota have just been released. The Norton 850 Commando, BMW R90S, and Ducati 900SS are also in the middle of production and bikes have never been faster, pushing 130 mph top speeds and approaching 100 horsepower.

You're 22 and looking to go fast, bang 70's QTs and live that rock n roll life, what do you buy and why?

Yeah actually you can start on a 600. It's not like the powerband appears out of nowhere and sends you power willying through a corner and into the grave like you just activated IOMTT mode and the steering lock is not bad because the steering geometry makes up for it.

You are given the ability to go suicidally fast but they have so little low end power that you have to actually try to go suicidally fast. That's too much for nanny states but not too much for free men.

Took Ducati off my list of manufacturers, now I'm down to these bikes as my potential next bike;

Yamaha MT-07
Kawasaki ZX-6R 636
Kawasaki Z900RS

Naked, super sport or retro.

ZX-6R has good horsepower, top end speed and is a classic and gorgeous design.

MT-07 has slightly more torque and can still go at like 130mph and all the reviews I see of it are really positive and praise its handling and riding position.

Z900RS looks great. No idea about its performance yet.

Honda a shit. They don't have any bikes that appeal to me at all.

@Raving_Cute
an r1 has different seating position and fairings, it's not a naked upright bike for everyday riding and commuting. Why get an anemic fz07 when you can get way more power for a trivial price difference. The only consideratino between getting an 09 and the 10 would be insurance prices, but you shouldn't buy the 07.

Lord_Tryzalot
Lord_Tryzalot

@Raving_Cute
Or you should just get an MT-09 instead of an 07 because the 07 is a glorified learner bike meant to appeal to dudebros and people who idolize stunters because much wheelies. While the 09 is a pretty solid all round bike.

1000cc sportbike rider: "I feel you, I liked my old 600"
500cc commuter bike rider: "Man, that does seem cool. I can't wait until I'm off my euro learners license."
250/300cc scooterbike rider: "I'd like one of those fast bikes, I'm just not ready for one yet"
harley rider: "Yeah, faster than mine, but those fuckers hurt my back"
Overrated naked bike rider: "WELL I DIDN'T BUY MORE HORSEPOWER THAN I NEEDED."
^has 50 more horses than 250 rider, 30 more than the 500 rider, less low end/midrange than a cruiser and way less comf, and an engine that doesn't pull as hard at any RPM as the sportbikes
If /dbt/ was a bar he would get his ass kicked sooner rather than later.

He came in saying he had "narrowed it down" to 3 completely different bikes then asked for advice one which to pick without giving budget or what he wants out of the bike. Then sperged out when told the FZ-07 was pretty out of the league of the others and recommended more equivalent bikes. He's pretty deluded and doesn't know what he's talking about.

if you want cheap, bikes from 11 years ago are better engine and chassis-wise than budget bikes today and cost $2000-$3000.

inb4 too much power
Once you're nobike you'll understand this isn't the case until you're doing accidental burnouts on rainy days.

Torque is the muscle that allows the bike to accelerate while horse power is how fast it'll go, atleast that's how I understand it

girlDog

@Nude_Bikergirl
Not exactly, torque is rotational force, power is power.
A gearbox can convert hig rpm and low torque to low rpm and high torque, the only constant is power.

For example there are some small powerfull 50 cc engines that accellerate a lot faster than 125 cc engines with more than doubble the torque, but less power.

Actually no. I didn't ask for advice, I just left my blog post there for anyone interested enough to give a reply. Someone started calling the MT-07 bad compared to the MT-09 and then somebody who has an MT-07 defended it. See @StonedTime

@Nude_Bikergirl
Torque times RPM is the work done by the engine. Horsepower. Torque alone is just the twisting force. Gears and final drive are most of what affects acceleration, as long as your engine has the power to turn them and your tires have the grip to move forward instead of spinning in place.

Sportbikes with less than half the torque do 0-60 twice as fast as harleys and beat them off the line because they're geared to utilize their revvy engines properly. A harley geared like a sportbike wouldn't be going anywhere soon, but would do a lot of burnouts.

I like the look of the MT-07 and it's cheap and has great reviews; lots of torque, comfy riding position, great handling.

The difficulty I'm having with deciding is the differences in bikes; one is retro but still a 900 so it won't be slow; one is a super sport under 700 but can do over 130mph and it's a classic, and the other is a highly-rated cheap naked. Very different bikes, all appealing to me for different reasons.

@TreeEater
Ninja 300 is aesthetic, I say go for it if you want it.

AwesomeTucker

you're going to spend more money on it which is a waste when you can just get a ninja 250. You'll think it's pretty quick until you get to try almost any other bike. Just get a 650 class.

Really, the vast majority of budget naked riders fall into threecategories:

It's all they could afford/were willing to spend money on ("why new? i wanted a warranty.")
Struts around trying to appear more virtuous, possibly claiming to be a better rider, for having a slower bike (I didn't waste my money, i follow the law and don't need that much power, i actually have fun in corners, because everybody knows fast bikes are the worst for cornering)
Afraid of more power ("i-it's not too much to throw around and go WOT with", and the justified beginner, "i can't even take a corner going faster than 30mph")

Burnblaze

@lostmypassword
This so much

Notracks think tracks are like a safe controlled version of initial D where cornering technique matters more than anything but they are built to favor speed above all. There's a straight between every corner and the corners are big and wide so how well you can corner intersects how fast your bike can go.

When you go fast on the track you go FAST.
When you go fast on the road you go "pretty fast considering there might be a faggot on a daytona crossing the double yellow and a gravel patch just around the next corner"
