Thinking about upgrading to an R6 later down the road, the current model just looks amazing and I'm sure will be a blast to ride. The only thing that's got me concerned is seat height and weight. Oh well, will worry about that eventually when I consider upgrading, for now, the R3 is more than enough bike for me.

Also for fun, would love to add a Honda Rebel 500 to the collection. Was already a big fan of the older models from the motorcycle safety course and before that never rode anything but a scooter so will always have fond memories of the OG model. I like how Honda refreshed the look and put a modern twist to the bike. Will for sure be a fun bike to just chill and cruise around on while taking a break from a super sport bike.

Was planning on holding out for the T700, but I don't think I've got the dirt skills for it and got a smoking deal on a demo hyperstrada 939.


Merry christmas/upcoming graduation to me. Pretty bittersweet to prep my R3 for sale, but after nearly 30k miles on it and 2 "totals" that bike has far exceeded anything it owed me. Looking forward to see what my first italian experience has in store for me.

What's in the stable now and what it's used for:
1990 Yamaha FZR400. Bought this long ago as a spare for my race bike in the year where I went for a championship in the local roadracing series ... a loooong time ago. Still registered for the road. I did a thorough freshening about 6 years ago.
2004 Kawasaki ZX10R. Main street bike. High mileage (108,000 km) and tired ... it has been great.
2011 Honda CBR125R. Wee thing for blasting around at wide open throttle with no one being any the wiser. All acceleration is at wide open throttle. All straightaways aside from school zones are top-speed tests.
2015 Kawasaki H2. "Because".
2015 Yamaha R3. Roadrace bike. Track only.
1989 Yamaha FZR400, previous roadrace bike, now retired and parked in front of a wall of trophies.

Being from India my stable had been a bit different than others, in 2006 bought a Bajaj pulsar 150 as my daily runner, ran for 40k kms, then in 2010 a Yamaha R15, again a daily runner, ran for 95k kms, then in 2018 upgraded to the 2016 R3, have ran 21k kms till date, again a daily runner, and in February 2019 bought a 2016 Kawasaki zx10r krt edition for those Sunday fun rides, planning to buy a 200cc off-roading bike Hero xpulse and upgrade it a bit for those trail runs..
