    Then you won't be needing that pesky old Kawasaki, then, will you? Well, if it's just going to be sitting around I could find some use for it...
    ;):D

    Seriously, though, congrats on your new pair of twins! You'll have a blast on them this year, for sure.

    There's no question, the Honda (reliability, skookum overbuilt frame, etc)
    The SV is a grenade waiting to explode.

    Sv650 = Fun
    RC51 = FUN!!!

    Seriously, the RC is a much more stable ride without needing too many mods. The SV650 is a very fun bike, but could use better suspension (GSXR front end replacement! and better shock), motor work to bring it up to 90+ horse, etc. All that can = big dollars! However, in it's close to stock form, you'll only need 2 to 3 sets of tires for the year, so it's cheaper to run.

    You can dress the RC up and give it some nice bling, but after mapping and doing a few usability mods (battery relocation, new brake and clutch masters), it's ready to race with little dollars put in it. It will chew through tires a little faster, but it's awesome! If I only had to choose 1, it'd be the RC.

    Im looking at these actual bikes that I posted above..oh, the Kawi im still riding..

    the SV is well sorted i think, no big-ass motor job, but its a decent motor job, plus gsxr front end, brembo crap, blah,blah..

    the RC is DONE, big melons, etc..

    hmmmm...

    Get the RC. I've been looking at that same one for over a month and if I didn't have too much junk in the garage already, I'd be giving that guy a call. I'm not joking.

    Both have merit but the RC will be cheaper to run and more fun down south, :cool:

    SV would be more competitive down south. That RC would be going toe to toe with 999Rs, 1098, 1198 etc.
