im also thinking of starting to ride this summer. i would like to start with an sv650 bc ive heard many people praise it as a good beginner bike though ive also thought about the ninja 500. also, i will take the msf course. i hadnt considered getting a 5-600 dollar bike to begin with for a few months then get the sv650, but i think its a good idea. with that in mind, what good, reliable bikes can i get for that price range? i could go on ebay and search but i have no idea what bikes are known for reliability and which ones are more likely to have had the shit beat out of them on the racetrack.

I just gotm y motorcycle license...took and passed the MSF course first.......and Im getting a Ninja 250........gonna ride that for 3-6 months depending on how often I actually end up riding it.......then depending on how I feel about my skills (may take another MSF course again at this point just to brush up and have somebody else appraise me) I will either move up to a Ninja 500, a Ninja 650.....or go crazy and get a ZX-6R, GSXR600 or an R-6.

Just from sitting on the bikes and seeing how they felt I really liked the GSXR600, GSXR750 and the R-6...........

Hondas will never be the lightest bike you can get. They're heavier and less powered but they handle amazingly. I would definately agree with the SV650 as a great beginner bike, but it has one flaw. The way the radiator is set up, it goes out wider than the bike, and if you ever drop it there is a significant chance of cracking up a radiator.
You really should go for the cheap bike, it doesn't neccessarily mean its an underpowered bike, it just means its not as fast as other bikes.
Take into accound an old Honda F3 or Suzuki Katana (before they got ugly), they're definately on the quick side and will hit 120 (140ish for the Honda) and since they don't have aluminum frames if you drop it it has a very good chance of being perfectly fine. You also have little chance of losing money on it.
Their is no point in rushing through this, and dumb as it sounds, you're talking about you're life here. Good luck, be careful!

First off, it took them 4 whole years to finally come out with a new 600, suzuki does it every 2 years, and now lets look at the history of weight. I'll admit Suzuki has gotten fat recently(don't know why), but Honda makes fatties.


600's
Honda Suzuki Yamaha Kawasaki
2001 435 423 426 435
2002 435 423 426 435
2003 445 423 415 418
2004 445 429 419 418
2005 429 429 424 427
2006 431 438 423 431


1000's
Honda Suzuki Yamaha
2004 466 443 450
2005 466 443 450
2006 451 444 451
