I think you'll be fine with your prior background. Its all up to yoou how you control yourself and the bike.

I rocked a 600SS for a first sportsbike. Had a couple of cruisers before.

O wow..



I would like to recommend an SV650 or ninja 650. I started with a Ninja 250 did a trackday and loved it so I got something more oriented for it but something I could still take off and cruise to San Antonio or some other all day trip andnot have any problems so I got the SV. And if you want the SS look the fully faired SV's look pretty badass imo.

And if you decide to go to the track(and it sounds like you're interested in it) the sv is right at home there. And it's even more fun blowing by tards like that up there ^^ that watched torque and biker boyz one to many times on your underpowered V-twin

As a matter of fact I may be listing mine up for sale in a few days if you're interested. Might be snagging a VFR that I just can't get out of my head

With the experience you listed throttle response should be easy for you. I suggest sitting on different bikes to see if you like the ergonomics. Ergonomics can make or break your opinion on the bike.

I started on the 250 and I'm really itching on getting a bigger bike already. :(
