Hi,

My name is Sérgio i'm 37 years old and i´m from Portugal.
In the last 2 weeks I've been seeing some motorcycles, Honda, Triumh, MotoGuzzi and Yamaha >:)
My choice for now is XSR 700 60th, because i like very much and fits the values $$ that i want to spend.

thanks
Sérgio

Welcome to the forum.

Good choice on going with the XSR! What bikes have you owned in the past? Anything more in CC than the XSR?

My latest bikes have been most of times scooters 125CC. And yes is a big step for this type of bikes...but i am very careful, and i do not like to speed, i prefer to take drive along the sea and mountains.
I have almost finished taking the driving license:laugh:

Olá LisbonMekat,

I am from Porto. My dealer is "Antero" in Vila Nova de Gaia.
"Antero" has one of the largest motorcycle shops.
So far they are giving me a discount equivalent to the legalization expenses (+-300euros), but i want to include some extras on bike (akrapovic, black protection to the radiator, etc..)

Olá Sergio...
The radiator in black is a must... The XSR900 as such a tinny radiator...The XSR radiator is for me the only negative issue, and the price compared to MT07...

I will not have a discount, i have a Suzuki VanVan to trade in the deal and that´s not a good commercial bike in Portugal..

We should meet in the next "Lés a Lés" :)

Abraço..

I got the radiator cover and painted it black using regular spray paint. The result turned out pretty good in my opinion.

Sorry for the poor resolution on the before part of the picture, the camera on the phone was not the best.

- Radiator black cover
- Aluminium chain guard
- Billet Frame Tube End Caps
And exhaust (akrapovic mt-07 or sc-project)

Congratulations sergiopinto! I hope the days will go by quickly!
Good list of extra parts you're getting. I'm thinking of getting the billet frame tube endings, but to be honest I do find them a bit pricey.

Good solution with spraying it which with the right heat paint and sprayed on properly can go a long way. looking forward to what you do to it in the future.
