I wouldn't buy either, but I guess if a gun was held up to my head it'd be the Ninja.

Get a Ninja or a SV650 I'd say.
I've seen this first hand. Last week on 290, guy was normal sized, thought he was on a dirt bike till I got closser and saw it was a Blast.
He was riding it as hard as he could, had soft saddle bags on it, but it was all over the place at 65MPH and looked very bouncy.

Always thought they were interesting though...

(older ninja in reasonable shape +/- $1000, take reasonable care of it and you'll get your moneys worth)

The blast has a nasty history of drivlines locking up at the most inopportune times, bucking people off onto the roadway. Just google bull blast problems.

I knew a guy that made the mistake of buying the Blast. What a piece of that thing was. I rode it and it scared me.

Even Buell knew it was .
