I owned a kawa 250, and that was a great starters bike. Honestly, a 600cc 2000+ is really not the greatest starter. Remember that the newer 600 superbikes have as much, if not close to, the same power as the older r1's. You over throttle and drop the clutch or bump throttle with a 250; the bike will be more forgiving. If you make the same beginner mistakes on a superbike your falling off that bike.

But then again, only you know yourself, and only you can define what you can handle.


Currently, I have a k6 with a G-M2 license and I am 24 turning 25 paying 2225 with statefarm.

thats good to know,i will look more into when i get a bike.if it is way to expensive i will ride without insurance like alot of my friends do cuz they were going to have to pay way to much for the bike.
