When you say "cheapest" do you mean the least expensive to buy, cheapest made, or cheapest maintenance? Much of that depends on the condition you buy it in, if used, what kind of maintenance was done, and how much of it you can do yourself in the future without messing it up and having to take it to a shop somewhere. Knowing somebody that has experience working on a specific bike is great. I have also depended on the plethora of internet information and also having the service manuals for all of my bikes. I am the only one that touches my bikes for any repairs, maintenance, or upgrades simply because I know it will be done correctly, or at least I can blame myself if something goes wrong. I have made at least 30 modifications on my 1999 Busa and everyone of them works like I need it to.

Assuming you are wanting to buy one, I would go to houston craigslist and do a search in the motorcycle section. You can find all kinds of bikes in all price ranges. Find out what kind of riding you want to do on it, and find a bike that will allow you to do as close to that as possible. I would recommend a bike that you know some of the background on how it was driven and maintained. If two people bought the same bike, what is cheapest to one person may cost the most to another one. You sometimes have to kiss a few toads before you find the Princess!

Superbike? Cheapest? In my opinion a superbike has a boat load of horsepower is unique and is stylish. For example MV Agusta, aprilla, Bmw or my favorite Ducati

I have experience with 1999 Busa...almost 0 maintenance in four years and almost daily riding)
I have experience with 2002 ZX12R...same thing over a period of one year
I have experience with 2003 ZX600 636....same thing, but only had it a short period of time and did change the fuel pump and had to get a new tank since the guy let it stay out in the rain for a year before I bought it with only 3000 miles on it.
I have experience with a bunch more bikes that are not considered sport bikes.

Like I mentioned before, if you can find a descent bike and take the steps needed to keep it in good shape (pre-maintenance) is much cheaper and easier than post work after it breaks down. Let me know if you want me to help you out. I have quit a bit of experience buying and fixing up bikes. Thanks, Marlon!

For parts availability, you can't beat a Gixxer. Maintenance wise, any of the KawaHonYamaZuki will be fine, compared to the Euros.

01 - 03 GSXR 600. Fuel injected, no real extra maintenance, $22 - 2500 for a decent runner, no low end power to scare yourself with...all top end, tons of parts and upgrades available.

Don't get a carbed bike...period.
