Acceleration. Duh. Its not illegal (anymore) and posing is for losers.

I bought mine b/c I wanted a motorcycle. I think sport bikes are the safest in the respect to braking, acceleration, and maneuverability! If something happens you have the best possible tools to get out of that situation compared to a much bigger, slower, heavier bike. ie: cruisers and etc...

Hmm where does anything say they were designed/intended to 'stunt' and 'clutch it up'? While we're at it... you bought a 'sport bike' and not a 'racebike'.


Let's get further into this... 'speeding' at 5-10mph, maybe 15 vs 20+ to 2x-3the posted speed limit.

Ormand... A 650r is a sportsbike. Just not a Super Sport.

I bought my bike, believe it or not, to save gas!!! I was rolling a big as Tahoe with 24s and the gas money I was spending could equal out to a sportbike. So I starting daily riding it. Then got addicted to riding fast, started wheelies and endos, and now Im hooked on the track....

So in Summary... Instead of saving money, Im spending more money

Bingo... and if your gonna 'Ride it how it was meant to be ridden...' then you do it WHERE it was meant to be ridden in that manner.

It could be argued that stunting is not a sportbike's intended purpose.
