I am looking at getting a new bike. What are the main differences between a 01'- 03 Suzuki sv650s and a 01'-02' Honda cbr f4i? Is the riding geometry the same betwwen the two bikes? Power comparable? Which (if either one) would be better on a 150 mile ride one way. Any info would be great. Thank you.

The SV650 will be a lot more comfortable, kinda depends how much experience you have and how aggressive you ride.

The CBR is quicker and will out handle the Suzuki (much as I hate to admit it :lol:), but if you really want a sportbike... buy a GSXR. :cheers:

sv650s is the way to go!!!! get the older models though asmuch as I hate to say it the new ones look like bugs!!! i have a 2001 sv650s and i have no problem riding 150 miles non stop!! (you have to refuel at about 125 130 miles though!!

The full retail value of a clean, undamaged, well-maintained 96 F3
is $3540. Offer him $2800 and work from there.

whats the "guide"?
Motorcycle Consumer News publishes a Used Bike Value Guide every few months. I used the Nov. 04 issue. They compile values from the N.A.D.A. Motorcycle Appraisal Guide, available in larger libraries. But it is only a guide. Very low mileage and certain aftermarket additions will raise the value. High mileage, body damage, abuse or lack of maintenance will lower it. Try www.nadaguides.com.

SV is more comfy but the F3 is better suited to go fast out of the box.
Not a bad price but I would do as suggested earlier. :2cents:
