650's are V-Twin, 750's are inline.

just noticed this was in the cruiser section.. (twin 650's and 750's)

the difference is going to be marginal on a cruiser, really. It kinda boils down to the power/weight ratio more than the motor size.

So what your saying is when it comes down to it there isn't a big difference, it just boils down to the weight and etc etc

I would say buy a bike you can grow into... My first bike is a 1600, just dont twist the throttle as much. If you are set on a small displacement cruiser, buy used, that way you wont take as bg of a hit when you upgrade.

a shadow 750 is a great bike, I rode the arrow model for a year, very very low maintenance, good power/handling, tops out at 115.

I'd say he's in the right range then...

My old man's got a 600 shadow, the feels like a wuss... I had a 700 intruder
that was a completely different experience/beast.
