Sportbike Newbie ZX-14 vs. interceptor 800
I am looking to purchase a sport bike for the 1st time and am looking for some opinions on the 2 bikes. (I realize they are totally different bikes)
I have been riding big cruisers on and off for 20 years, BUT I have NEVER ridden a sport bike. I am 6'2" 230 lbs.
Other than price, what are you opinions? (I picked these on looks)
new 07 honda interceptor 800 ($7000)
used 09 (214 miles) zx-14 (monster energy) ($9000)
I will not be going to the track, nor do I wish to pop wheelies, or smoke tires. is the zx-14. civilized around town? The intruder looks more comfortable on a longer trip, But I am not sure.
Im in Michigan so test riding in 12 degree weather is out of the question.
