Alrighty, so I'm gonna be graduating soon and you know what that means...presents!
I've been looking at getting a bike for a few months now and I thought I'd see if anyone on here has any opinions.
This will be my first bike that I've owned, but I know how to ride, so please don't suggest a Ninja 250, lol.
I was looking at the Suzuki SV and GSX-R. Now, I'm only 5'2" so just sitting on them makes me want the gixxer cause it's lighter and easier for me to maneuver. However, even though the SV is heavier, it has more (IMO) useable street power. You have to really rev the gixxer to get to its highest power output.
I was also looking at the R1 (Yamaha) but there weren't any at the dealerships I've been at so I don't know what they feel like. Also, I've heard they're kind of buzzboxes.
I'm open to other things as well, and while I'd like to get a new one, I'm not opposed to getting one used if I'm sure of its history.
