The '07 looks like a blast, but is it too similar to it's Big Brother....???
There is enough difference for it to interest me into another Skunk Werkz project, which is well underway.The '07 looks like a blast, but is it too similar to it's Big Brother....???
To get 70 mpg you'll probably have to go with 500cc or less. Still fun, just not as much fun as the 09. If i didn't already have the 09, i'd be all over the 07. My 500 Ninja has turned into the commuter bike, mostly for it's wind protection.
I'd like a WR450 supermoto too, but I've costed out the bike and good quality components, and Im at $10k for a well set up bike. $3.5k of that for the conversion.
I could do it cheaper, but I'd be disappointed with the compromises.
If the 07 had arrived at the same time as the 09, I'd have the 07 instead. However, I'm not willing to take a loss on both bikes, to own one of them, at this point.
