too new for alot of local reviews. really not the best first bike, but he could do worse.

tell him to take the MSF

get a cheap small cc used bike and pay cash. buying a shiny new bike is not really a good idea, cuz more then likely he will crash and better to crash an ol cheap bike, then a shiny new one......it's all part of learning.

whats wrong w/ SV's. arguably one of the best track bikes out there, only 650cc and a vtwin?

instead of a V, the pistons are in parallel, like 1/2 an I4.
