Given budget, both are in reach as my second bike. Gixer has no bells or whistles, but can be added aftermarket, Beemer has all bells and whistles Both probably tracked. Both probably wheelied! Both probably quite a few owners. Which would you buy and why? I believe `gen 1 gearboxes were an issue, but like IMS on 996 Porsche suspect the noise is more than the fact! How many miles to too many miles? Gixer is known territory, never been too sure of aftermarket TC and its ability to do the job that well.
