              remember, you don't have to buy new, you should be able to pick up a 2nd hand triple for ~10k

                  All have different characteristics & power delivery.

                  ER6n & XJ6N are the least powerful bikes on your list. XJ6N is the new replacement for FZ6N.
                  FZ6N has more power & weighs less than the XJ6. If you can find a used FZ6 in good condition they're good bikes.

                  FZ8 weighs almost as much as the FZ1.(personally I wouldnt buy one)

                  Street Triples are the best in a mid size naked ($10k 2nd hand, $13k new)

                    This quote should flash on the screen of anyone about to post their thoughts on what new bike they should buy.

                    It pops up in every thread of this ilk.

                    BTW - I saw a street triple on the Reid Hwy yesterday morning, and I still have a bit of a chubby. Nice looking bike.

                      second hand 600cc bikes are hardly on sale, but I will keep looking.

                      SIR sparks, i agree with you FZ8 is not that appealing

                            The xj6n are going to be used by riding assessors soon so I think they will be the new gs500. Rather go for something with a bit more zing and character

                              So you're saying the speed triple is the new GSXR-750?
