    Default HD Superlow or Iron883 or Triumph Street Triple 675 - PLEASE HELP!

    Am returning to XBHP after a very long time, apparently i was enjoying my ride at life. But now am in the cross roads of choosing the perfect machine for me.
    Yes, the search is on for a bigger a bike, i have owned a Pulsar 220 and a CBR250R. Am sill using the CBR250R, but as everybody else i crave for that dream bike and am having a very hard time to choose which one to go. Any help is much appreciated. Below are the details:

    About Me:
    1. I am Big, but please don't push me to the cruisers because of that. But at the same time a confused too.
    2. I am Tall to 6ft or close, but doesn't mean i don't love to snail up on a sports bike.
    3. I feel that my heart wants a sports bike, you might guess why i have a CBR. But at the same time, i am worried about my size and how i look on these bikes.
    4. Yes, iv'e been to the showrooms a couple of times have sat on the bikes and have felt it. Still i don't know which one to choose.

    Bikes in my list of choice:
    1. HD Superlow 883
    2. HD Iron 883
    3. Triumph Street Triple 675 and may be
    4. The Daytona 675

    Or should i settle for Hyosung Aquila Pro and or the GT650R

    And yes i don't like the Bonneville.

    Budget: 8 to 12L

    I cant sleep guys, if you know what i mean. I need to make a choice and move on. SO PLEASE help!.

    Query Approved

    The bikes listed out are as different from each other as possible, a naked, a supersport and Harleys!

    You really need to know what kind of biking you want to take up, then choosing the bike will be much easier.

    Very True, but i would like to own all of them, which is not possible as it may seem.
    Priority goal is to own a bigger bike, but as you rightly pointed out, am confused and need help to choose.

    If you had a lakh rupees and had to choose a bike, what would you pick?
    Avenger 220 = get the Harleys
    Pulsar 200 NS = Street Triple
    R15 = Daytona

    The Hyosungs a re advisable only if the finances are an issue. No disrespect to them, but they're built to a price.

    Good question, but like it is obvious the confusion still stands the same.

    But Hyosung does get a minus number now.
    But have seen a few reviews that say the new Aquila Pro is a very good build. Would you know anything about that. Thanks.

    For some reason I don't feel the Z 800 in me, not as much as I love the ZX14R, but that's way too expensive.

    The bike is for me, yes. But I was looking for a comparable advise.

    Let me split my search here for everyone's easy roll.

    To start with can you guys help choose between the Iron 883 and the Superlow. I know their specs and engine similarities. Have sat on both of them. But need some expert advice on these two to start with as I have seen many negative reviews about the iron. And could not find many on the new Superlow.

    Are the roads around your area bad? If yes, then get the iron, else superlow all the way

    Just to clear up things here or to confuse you even more

    What would be your purpose of ride, Office commute or just a weekend toy to play around or both. IMO, Street triple is good choice (mine would be Z800), good for both the worlds(lets leave the wind blast and other things aside).

    For 9L, OTR you can buy Street triple, upgrade with any performance kit if need when you think the power of 79 horses is not enough, Its damn nimble to handle. But since you outrightly said that you are BIG, i dont know how big is BIG. go for a TD and see for yourself, your perspective may change.

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    IMPO, Daytona 675 is a supersport and Track bred machine and not suitable for our road conditions.
