1st time rider here well not yet My parents have decided to get me a motorcycle for graduation. They told me I could get whatever I wanted My problem is I can't decide between a Panigale S 1000 RR or KTM 1190 RC8 My friends told me they could teach me to ride I just need a ride.

Congrats on your graduation and welcome to MH. All the bike you have mentioned are not for first time riders. Start with a smaller bike like a 250/300 and once you get comfortable go for the bigger bike. Any plans to take the MSF course?

I'm not going to get a small bike cause I don't want to have to upgrade in a year or 2 to keep it interesting. Plus they are way cheaper than what my parents are willing to shell out. MSF meh maybe see what my friends teach me first.

I would not start on those bikes since your new. but since your not going to get a beginner bike at least get a 600 its super fast but not as fast as the bikes you listed. Take the MSF, first of all its the only way to get your licenses, and it teach you how to ride. Having your friends teach you is not safe at all. Welcome to MH and stay safe

Start on whatever you want. Have fun but be careful. Starting on a 250 isn't necessary.

I am not telling you to not get a 1000, but if you are completely new to 2 wheels, then ride on a smaller bike before getting on to a 1000. Get the 1000 of your choice with your parent's money ad buy a used 250 if you can afford it. Take the MSF, ride the 250 till you are comfortable and then hop on to the 1000. You can always sell the 250 with a very minimum loss. Good luck !!. Of the 3 in your list, I would go with the 1000rr. fast and feels like a 600.

Hello mate. Welcome. We have a lot in common. I bought a turbo hayabusa for my first bike.. After dropping it about 12 times the first week I got better. I can teach you to ride. Are your parents to adoptions?

























I always tell my friends. Drugs and inbreeding are bad!
