power isnt really a concern for me as im still a new rider. i just got the vulcan this past summer lol and since i dont need 5 vehicles hehe, one can be traded for "spare" motorcycle if you will.The 650 is a big bike in size, but has no real power.
I think you will be better off with the intruder. imo
Just that. The bike didn't feel as well made as even the VStar 950 that we got for my wife. And that was from test riding a brand new one this past summer. I don't think it's a bad bike for the money, and I think that's the market Yamaha goes for with that bike. If you're riding 2-up, then the Yamaha is going to give you more room for the both of you. However, going from the VN750 to the Yamaha, you're going to feel a definite difference in power. But, I think it's geared lower than the Vulcan anyway. You really have to get on and try the bikes before you decide. If money is the main driving issue, then you are going to have to make compromises somewhere.ksmnet - how do you mean "felt cheap and chintzy"? lol(

netmatrix - Yes the Yamaha is a much cooler design and i think that is why if i can choose between the two .. im almost certain it will be the yamaha. But if he backs out and i can still get the suzuki that will be ok too cause it comes with saddlebags battery tender, highway pegs and a windshield where the yamaha is all stock no extras :-(
Sounds like you already made up your mind dude.power isnt really a concern for me as im still a new rider. i just got the vulcan this past summer lol and since i dont need 5 vehicles hehe, one can be traded for "spare" motorcycle if you will.
AND since the Mrs said she would ride a bike by her self then we can plan long cruises together if i have 2 bikes! :smiley_th
i think its a custom ?? but not sure yet. will be seeing the bike later todayI have one question. Is the Vstar a custom or a classic? if it was between the style of a classic & an Intruder I'd pick the Intruder. However if it's between a custom & the Intruder I'd pick the custom.
The easiest way to tell is the front tire and fender,Classic has a fat fender and tire,Custom is fitted with a taller slimmer tire and fender. If you are looking for two up comfort,I would think the Classic is probably a better choice than the Custom .The Classic generally has a roomier seat.i think its a custom ?? but not sure yet. will be seeing the bike later today
whats the differences? i am assuming custom means you can change it add on parts easily?
