Having seen  a recent advert for a FZS 1000 in a bike shop described as a "future classic " , just wondering   what you think?

Well looked after examples with the usual sensible upgrades that “Pieater” explains in the top “sticky” we all know it benefits from, will likely appeal to ex owners & value it the most, that said It was a classic when it first came out & will always be one.👍

This wont have any effect, I guess every classic would need to pay in a ULEZ. I've got a 2003 E500 Merc estate. Quite rare and wont lose any value because it'll cost an extra £12 to get into London.

Only when you want to buy it, not a future classic when you want to sell it

I have owned over 60 bikes and have to admit that my Fazer is the best all rounder there is... this link from a Bennetts Journo Below...

As VNA says everything is becoming a future classic,  but what does a bike have to have to stand above the crowd?
The FZS 1000 to me is all the bike I need and having had a few bikes, don't see any other bike I need or more Importantly can afford. 
Just wandering if the word "future classic " is a understatement?

I’m with Will on this, I’ve not quite had 60 bikes (owned 22 over 16 years), but I’ve ridden dozens more though. I keep asking myself which bike could be better than the Fazer thou? It’s the only bike I’ve ever had that does everything I need up to about 90%! I’ve yet to find a bike that does it all at 100%


That on its own makes the bike a ‘benchmark’, and definitely a future classic!
Stop polishing it and ride the bloody thing!!
