        hey guys good idea for a first bike? My friends made me straight fear going fast on a bike so no worries on going outside my skill threshhold, but I'm kinda heavy and was thinking an vfr750 would be alright to learn as apposed to a 600 then moving up to it.
        Jah bless! :pimp:

          The VFR750 should produce more torque than a 600. The VFR has a v-4 with shorter piston travel giving a lot of low end torque. The VFR may not be as fast but it should move away from a stop pretty quickly. I don't think I would go the VFR route either being a new rider? But that's me. If I where going to own a street bike I would def pick the VFR with it's more upright position rather than a race replica bike.

          I'm not sure how heavy you are but you may want to start on a 500 Ninja or the 500 Suzuki. Maybe even the new 650 Ninja, I've heard they a pretty forgiving.

            09 Buell Firebolt XB12R. This thing is a Torque Monster. My third bike, went from a Kawa 750 to a 750 GSXR. The Buell is the better hands down. Not as fast as the GSXR on the top end, but pulls like a train down low... I dont need to do 150+ anymore. Maybe I'm getting old

                  man I'd love to have a 2stroke bike. damn EPA. also I don't think shorter stroke gives you more low end torque....

                        I haven't owned a motorcycle in nearly a decade.

                        My first bike
                        US grey market 1991 Yamaha TZR 250 2 stroke
                        2 stroke street bikes had no low end torque. But had massive top end power.

                          I've got a 1999 Ninja 250. Currently thinking about a re-paint to go along with an upcoming carb rebuild Any good ideas?

                              If you ever decide to sell that, please let me know. I would gladly ditch my KZ1000 for that bike.
