In: MOTORCYCLE, Suzuki, Whaddya think?
Answer: Yes, the GSX-R 600. Sorry Dave, I think this is one of the ugliest bikes produced…
i agree the GSX-R 600 is a much better looking bike
yeah but I think Dave's point is "it's a good starter bike" (first time owners). For new riders, the torque of the 650 helps with inexperienced shifting and it's slower with out the forward stance of GSXR 600.
…and yes, the GSXR 600 looks better
I guess I'm biased because the GSXR was my first (starter) bike. Just the right amount of everything for what I was looking for.
there's a reason both the GSXR and the SV 650s are compared to each other (side note- Patrick of theChive's starter bike was the SV 650s)
24 –> FAIL….Yamaha.
nighthawk 650 I think was much better
remember he said started bike not squid bike
but dont wheelie it or it will explode
don't stand up for a mile on the highway and you're fine. This bike is a wheelie monster!
This bike explodes without warning – dont ask for warranty, that's for others.
For starter bikes its good, along with the Kawasaki 650r/ER-6's. Perhaps the honda 250r or Ninja 250 would be better for some to start on, but I dare say, anyone who says a Gixxer or similar is the best is one of those SQUID types that ends up increasing everyone's insurance rates.
