    There may be a third option. A lot of dealers in Florida will take a bike to sell on consignment. You may want to see if your Guzzi dealer will do that for the NC. For example I was offered either...

    Mine is still pretty much empty. The only thing I added back there is the Battery Tender hook up I use for battery charging.

    I'm in the same situation as OCR. I've got the bike, but since I retired I have no work to ride to.

    If the wife tells me to run an errand today, I'll take the bike. Does that qualify? :)

    The only truly direct competition for the FZ-07 that I can think of off the top of my head are the Triumph street triple and the KTM 690 Duke (at least I think that's the KTM model name). There are...

    Agent,
    You may want to think about changing the above post to read "with a $10,000 lower price and better handling than a Harley Ultra classic".

    I think if you make that one change and submit it...

    To be honest, If the FZ07 had been available back in 2012 it would be in my garage right now. I'm a sucker for light weight, good handling bikes and a big fan of power.

    However, It's not 2012 and...
