Regardless of any other options you may consider - If you had £5.5k to spend on a new bike, which would you go for.

I have had so much advice and I know its down to personal choice but just generally interested from the more experienced rider's point of view.

For me the Aprilia.... Great looking bike mate. Both of them are to be honest.

Ok - the problem I have is that I ordered a Shiver yesterday and I have to say I love it. However, Today I went and looked at the Z750 and I love that too. I have been offered a far better deal on the Z750 than I had on the Shiver and I am in complete turmoil.

I could cancel the Shiver and loose my couple of hundred quid deposit or and go for the Z750 and get a better deal over 2 years.


I'm stuffed really - I have looked at loads of bikes and these are the only two I am considering. I have to make a decision tonight because the order has to be done in the morning otherwise I loose out on a fantastic deal.

Go to your Aprilia dealer, tell him you are thinking about pulling out and losing your deposit as you will save more money on the deal from Kawasaki in the long run and suggest he could keep you as a customer if he offered you the same deal.


With the current financial situation the country is in, it's a buyers market mate!!!!

Thanks for the few replies at the moment. I have to say I think I did the reight thing but when your new at this and a little bit of doubt comes into your head...it grows and grows.

I know its my choice at the end of the day but I really appreciate the comments so keep them coming.

:stupid:


Either that or you could ride both and decide which one you like better. Personally I think the Aprilia will be more reliable but the kawasaki will be more fun. I personally love the kawasaki though I have to say the Aprilia would be the one I'd go for.

There is no such thing THE perfect bike - there are MANY perfect bikes depending on how you feel when you're shopping for a ride.


There's loads of time for you to own plenty of different marques on your own personal quest for perfection.

Go aprilia, it's a much better looking bike.

 

I have to disagree. The kawasaki looks MAZING, its more sporty which is probably why I love the look of it. The shiver is probably heavier. This is aprilia. Their bigger bikes tend to weigh a million tonnes more than its rivals.

what were the vibes like on the kwak?? did you find it a bit of a buzz bomb? Both look fun bikes but I'd think the Aprillia's motor would have tons more character in the long run.

Get the Honda :wink:

 

Thanks Hoody - sensible reply as usual! :lol:


The Kawa felt a bit sportier and made me want to get my head down and blat it (if I actually was allowed to take it out of the test circut - which I was not).


The Aprilia ...well felt a bit more edgy....compact.... what am I doing???? minds made up - Im sticking with my first choice and staying with the Aprilia. Tar for the input!
