Its not that bad of a jump... I went from Katana 600 to gsxr 600... At first it seemed like a huge jump but that was only because I was full throttle off the start... I got the feeling like I was going to fly off it I slowed down and got used to it in about a week..

I say go for it and get it just take it easy and work your way up to using all its power.

Me personaly i think you should hang on to the 650 ride it for atleast 5000 miles really get a good feeling for the bike...I promis you that you can hang in the twisties and have more to brag about at the end of the day! Keep the bike!

Too tell you the truth I would trade my 750 any day for a sv 650 or the kawi 650...It would be nice to sit on something comfy every once in a while lol... Seriously dude don’t be dumb stick it out for at least 5000 miles do a few track days even then you will gain a all new respect for the bike...

The 600rr or any 600 for that matter isn’t that great around town they have no torque there all peak or nothing where as you have a very broad power band and can have more fun light to light.... Do your self a HUGE!! Favor and do a track day on it.... The do your self-1 more HUGE favor and keep your bike... It will be one of the smartest things you could ever doo....

I mean really think about it...Lets see the 600rr can do what 155-160mph big deal your a fool for going that fast on the street...I mean have you seen the freeways here in Houston.... Now next the acceleration stop light to stop light you will have much more fun on the 650 the rr will take 10000 rpm to get going and a lot of clutch abuse...Lets say you wanna stunt 650r loads of low end torque great for doing little woolies and what not.... Economical rr not so hot on gas granted better then most cars but still lets be real 35mpg not that great 650 what 45-50, Tires 650 is much nicer to rear tires then the 600rr...Parts i would even be willing to bet are cheaper to replace on the 650 should anything break or worst yet you decide to wreck.... Most of all you get to be different i mean most kids and girls don’t know the diff they see a sport bike and they get exited the end they don’t care if its h,y,k,t,s 600-1300 they could careless or know the difference.... Think about the satisfaction of beating your friends threw the twisties and you’re on a less powerful machine....

Seriously dude keep the 650!

Are u guys seriously telling this guy that a 650r is not a big jump to a 600rr....i really think u guys are giving this guy the wrong impression...

I recently sold my SV650s after 10k miles and 2 years of riding and bought a ZX-6R. Now that was a huge jump!!! I know that my SV is alot faster that the 650R. If u been riding only since Thanksgiving u really need to hold on the that bike alot longer....An inline-2 is a of alot more forgiving than an inline-4...
Believe me bro when i had my SV i rode with 2 of my buddies that had a Busa and a GSXR 1000...i was always in the back and the slowest by far....I wanted to upgrade so bad but i did the smart thing and kept myself from making that mistake...

i say keep it for another year...just my 2 cents...I am sure alot of guys would agree with me on this one...it is your money but its also your life and no one wants to read or hear about u on the news...:notworthy

Take it from me man my bike is not a ss its more of a touring bike and its not the fastest but is comfy, great on gas and in the twisties and it holds its own I can keep up with everyone else. You just got to learn how to ride and get comforatible with it, I for one at one time wanted to upgrade but the more I ride mine and learn more on how to ride it I love it. Also please do sign up for some track days I am going to start this next year there is so much you can learn, you will be surprised at what your bike is actually capable of it wont be the fastest but I wont bite you in the as quick as a ss bike will.

why does everyone always say something about twisties, twisties, twisties???
He could mastered the bike and one day, he will be a statistic or on the news as a headline says "motorcyclist wrapped bike around light post for corner too fast because forum members says the bike is forgiving."
Not all riders are road racing. It is mainly about looks on the street. If the guy wants to look good, let him. If you care so much and want to prevent an accident from happening, well, if he is not listening to his parents then heck, he is not gonna listen to anyone on here. Peer pressure is a and everyone has to learn the hard way. Each bike has a form and function, to each his/her own opinion/taste.
