I've seen a few recent threads comparing different bikes to the FZ. I've only had a handful of streetbikes over the last few years so I may not be the authority here but hardly anything I've ridden compares to the FZ. Every other bike I've ridden, other than a Duc Hypermotard, feels completely different. I've ridden sports bikes and other lightweight, upright bikes, like an FZ6 and Buell Lightening. It's hard to explain but they all feel like they dive into the turns and you need to really hang off of them to control them in the turns. This might be preferred at higher speeds but it's not as fun for me in the mid-speed twisties. The FZ and Hyper both feel similar in that they feel like a supermoto bike - very agile and flickable. I have dirtbike roots so maybe that's why I love how the FZ feels. Does anyone else feel like it's in a class (nearly) of its own when it comes to handling?
