Default Which to choose?

With us having our first really nice day in DC, 85 and sunny with very low humidity, it got me really itching for a new bike. I never really liked super sports as I have back problems to begin with, and cruisers just aren't my speed so I've narrowed my options down to 3 naked sports at this point.

The first that caught my attention was a local 2015 Aprilia Shiver 750 for what seems like a steal, and after looking into them they seem to be the best bang for your buck Italian compared to Ducati's equivalent.

Second is the Suzuki GSX-S750, love the looks of the bike and have heard very good reviews of the bike from the chassis to the motor. Same as the Aprilia, a local 2015 has been found for around the same price point.

Third choice would be a Yamaha FZ-09. Of the three, this one looks the best IMO, minus the lack of an analog tach. I've heard these are some of the most fun bikes in the class and price point being the lightest of the three. Ive only found one local 2014 at the same price point as the other 2.

So given that they are all similar year and price, which would you guys prefer based on opinion and experience?

FZ. But I don't like super fancy bikes that the aprilias would be. FZ also weighs ever so slightly less and makes more power. Although that Shiver probably sounds pretty fucking gnarly

edit- shiver 750. those sound sooooo good

I love the look of the FZs, and I think it's a great bang for the buck.

I've been taking a very hard serious look at the FZ-07. I've heard nothing but awesome reviews of those bikes, plus they are nearer my price range brand new as opposed to buying used. I'm going to go sit on some this weekend and see how they feel.
