Understood. Different goals for different people. I personally look for the comfort when the wheels are rolling and adapt to what is WRT stops as needed. If the ride pans out, then the time stopped is only a minor dot of time out of the trip.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

But for me the 6spd is a big deal, a positive update imho. The electronic adjustable suspension I’m not to big on as I view it as more clap trap to go wrong, again just my opinion..

Now all that said I would add that the $$$ needed to upgrade from your 2500km 2013 to a new one would be very prohibitive to me unless money is no object. Your 2013 isn’t even broke in yet, again my opinion.

You mention you have other bikes that you ride. It's obvious that money is not an issue, and my hats off to you for that. It must be the color and finish that is attracting you to her, and that's perfectly fine. From the little you mentioned and my assumption of your situation, I would vote YES, go for it. Or, maybe you just don't need a FJR....

If you like to have people notice what you ride and love talking to strangers, then, the Nikken has the same color scheme, albeit shiny, but it is an attention getter. For the amount you ride her, the Nikken is a better fit, and I'll bet your dealer doesn't have one on the floor, because..... They are a looker and many want that.
After thinking about FJR, I decided to sell since I am not ridding it enough.
It is beautiful bike however I think someone else will enjoy it more. I am putting it on the market as we speak.
Thanks everyone for input.

If you still want to have this piece of art just to look at her and for decoration that's also fine, some people buy expensive sculptures and paintings, you prefer nice bikes [IMG class=inlineimg]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/IMG]
I have '17ES matte silver, and love the ES, LED's, and 6sp bike is a big improvement over my previous FJR, not crazy about matte finish, if I ever decide to repaint or vinyl wrap it will be pearl orange or '14red

And if you are still wanting the latest FJR... don't trade your "old one" at the dealer, I am sure you will fetch more $$ by posting it on this forum, good luck with whatever you decide.
Also what are the "other" bikes you ride?
Took some time to make a decision.
I am putting FJR on the market.
I am pretty sure new owner will appreciate immaculate condition.

Well Mario, I guess the thing is that after you sell your current very low mileage fjr the worst thing that can happen is you decide ya gotta have another so you buy a new one, no biggie ! They seem to have an allure that brings people back, as I tend to say “they are really nice bikes with a few warts” ,,,,are you going to list it here ? There seems to be a lot of people looking for them here (???) and your current 13 would make a nice scoot for someone,,, good luck !

Don’t get me wrong, I am not happy to let her go however she is sitting at the garage and collecting dust. That being said I hope new owner will take a advantage and ride it everyday. Yes, I posted it already and I hoping that someone will pick it up sooner than later.

First oval I want to thank you for everyone time and feedback. Looks like here is still great community.

Just an update:

Bike was sold without the week.
Looks like new owner is enjoying new ride. I was happy that he appreciated the bike condition and will continue taking care of it.


I decided to go back to muscle bikes. Here is my new ride for the season:

What should I do? Sell it/trade it for new GEN IV or keep gen III?
Current models are only available in BLUE flat or DARK grey metallic. Any experience with flat color? Prons vs Cons?

Any feedback is greatly appreciate it.
Thank you
You sure you don't have a 2015 my man? Thats not the 2013 gray, unless both were available...thats Liquid Graphite which is what mine is....unless I'm getting confused by the pictures

1994 Honda VFR750 custom streetfighter
