I've had a lot of bikes and the FZ07 is hands down the best 700-750 class bike I've ever owned and at just 689cc it will perform better and cost less than most by far. It can be gentle or a terror depending on how you use the throttle. I've ridden it long distance and around the block and it's always a joy. It gets great gas mileage too and because it's relatively low displacement, insurance is affordable too.
