Hello guys..this is my first post and I am relatively a new rider in Australia..I have ridden motorcycles elsewhere but not much in Australia..I have got a full license and few months ago I did a mistake of buying a Hyosung GV250..I thought I will start with 250 but soon I realised that I need at least 500 and bit more grunt..there is no fun..Its going to be little long post, so please bear with me..

Now I like the look of the cruiser but I like little speed and fun too..I dont like the look of hardcore sportsbilke..So I want something a mix which goes relatively quick and looks good too..I drive quick cars and love speed..thats how I have come to these 3 contenders..I understand they are three different types of bikes and all and its not easy to put them all against each other but this 3 are the ones I shortlisted..

I weigh only 58 kgs and dont want very heavy bike..The purpose of the bike is mainly commuting to work..Street 500 looks really nice, new platoform, new engine, under 10k, looks promising to me. Its not very very quick but relatively sporty??

Bolt looks good too but not entirely sure if its the right bike for me..the seat looks bit far from the tank and not sure if its comfortable..the specs look good and paper and seems quite quick..

then comes to scrambler..I just came across it and the moment I looked at it, I loved it! It doesn't look like hardcore sportsbike nor like cruiser..like the styling..and when I saw the specs, I was super impressed..so lightweight yet plenty of power with great styling..

I know I have to test ride all of these to get the full idea but what do you experts think?

If you are in my position, which one will you pick and why?

Thanks in advance.

Having seen the H-D Street in person, I'd recommend you look at the Bolt or Scrambler instead. Fit and finish was lacking imho on the H-D and being new, let them work the gremlins out of the engine before buying new.

I have tried the Bolt before. Now, with the CSpec, there is a configuration to suit all size of riders. Haven't had a chance to ride the Duc ... yet. At least with Yam and Duc you are getting two tried and tested engines that are bullet proof. Also, fit and finish are superior, again, imho. Another bike you may want to consider is the FZ/MT-07.

Food for thought.
