I know many people r goin to disagree, but in my opinion anything less than 600cc is a waste of money. I started on a 600 and it wasnt too powerful. I have a lot of friends who started on 750's and it was no big deal. If your worried about dropping it just buy something a little older and cheaper. I just think if you buy something under a 600 u will be disapointed and stuck with it when you try to sell it. Remember when ur buying a bike a good thing to keep in mind is at some point ur going to sell it. So you want something that appeals to other people as well as yourself. Just thought i would share this with everyone

600 not too powerfull. ????????? hum lap times between th 1000cc class and the 600 class are a second of a difference. well what kind of experience have you ever had on a motorcycle. some ppl are going out and buying 600cc and 1000cc race bikes as thre first motorcycle ever. but i do agree with the 500cc bikes being a waste of money for me and some ppl but i know if my GF was buying a bike you better believe is is getting a 500 or less.

yeah i used to agree but i bought my sv650s and if you ride it like you are racing then you cant use it to its full use on the street ..... my reason for whanting to upgrade ...which wont be for a while but hopefully within next year!......is to have a liter bike with more power to do my favorate wheelies :wink: :dthumb: :dthumb: :dthumb: :dthumb:

bull on a liter bike. lol
i bet an actuall 600cc race bike like a ninja, or gixxer or r6 would feel like a liter bike compared to ur sv.

dont you see that liter bikes are not all there cracked up to be, i mean yeah there fast but take twisty for example, didnt he just buy a new R6

ok a couple of years i can live with and the sv. i was thinking you wanted to get a gixxer 1k next year. lol

if you wanna do wheelies, no matter what bike you have, you have to gear it.

I agree. I think some people missed that you said LESS THAN 600. Some of those Sportbike 600s are Dayyam fast! However, unless its some Superbike limited production thing, I don't think any 500cc or less bike is going to fill the need for speed or run 10s. :yaewn:

My first and currenty bike ever is an 04 R6 and I'm just REALLY getting used to the power in and out of turns. My strips are getting smaller and smaller. the only thing that makes me want a 1000 is the top end speed. I know top speed doesn't happen a lot but when you're at or near your top speed and a 1000 comes blastin by it makes you want one. It happened to me yesterday...my buddy just bought an 04 GSX-R 1000. He was waiting for me to take off. I dropped down to 5th and gunned it, but he was in 4th just waiting for me to gun it. he smoked my ass big time. I'm still pissed about it. When we finally got to Valley of fire I was way out in front of him and i felt a little better. We'll see what happens when he gets use to the handling though.
