What model bike do you use to commute to work?
I'm looking to possibly start riding to work often, but don't want to use my RC51 as a daily type commuting bike. My daily round trip is 45 miles and it's just about all straight roads. I encounter a total of 10 traffic lights on my commute with 3 of them in 1 miles and the others decently spread out.
I'm 5'11" and 240 pounds. I'm not rookie rider.
I will only consider fuel injected bikes.
I've been thinking about the new CB500, a used naked SV650 ( > / = 2003), CBR250 (if they are EFI). I'm not looking for a sporty styled bike, but will consider the CBR250 since the price is low and i'm sure the ergos aren't as aggressive as my RC51.

Yamaha Fzs. Arguably the best bike built for city purpose and it shows me everyday.

I commute on my GSXR 750, personally I have never had a problem with it, I ride a lot in traffic (stopping and starting) but I has never been an issue for me, but I can certainly understand you wanting a more comfortable bike to commute, if I was going to get any of those you mentioned it would probably be the SV650, only because they seem to be a good comprimise between sporty and and comfortable, not to mention that being a v-twin like your RC51 would make going between them a bit easier,
If it was me I would just I would just use the RC51, as I find having one bike to be easier, but out of the ones you mentioned I would say the SV650, thats just my personal opinion though,
Good luck, I'm sure you will find something that will work great for you.

It doesnn't meet your EFI Specification, but my favorite commuter is my 2003 Honda Shadow 750.
I live in Los Angeles and my commute is 27 miles each way with about 20 miles of freeway. The Shadow is a great lane splitter since the mirror heights are not equal with the mirror heights of most cars.
Secnd choice, Again out of your spec is a Honda Nighthawk 750. Decent power, and low maintenance.
Don't forget that you won't save money by motorcycling to work. What you save on gas you'll spend on tires.Sumber: Been commuting by motorcycle for 25 yaers.

My commuter bikes?? At times I used a 1954 Harley FL, BSA Thunderbolt, BMW R75/5, R50/2, Suzuki 550, Honda Goldwing before retired early- retirement wasn't first choice but home furnishings industry had a little(not so little!) slowdown 2008. Still have old Goldwing, still have old shoulder bag to carry thermos, books, notebooks.

have a 2009 Kawasaki Versys I commute on, I'm 5" 11" 220 lbs. it's a nice commuter, but I wish I had the 650 NInja instead because it's seat height isn't so high.
