maybe...maybe not. not everyone has the same passion for speed and such. Some people are quite content with just riding, regardless of how hard or fast it is. So I think it's unfair to assume he is like yourself (which is what you are doing) and suggest a 600. There is no need for him to get ANY I-4 motor at this point. GET THE 250... YOU WILL STILL HAVE SHITLOADS OF FUN!!!!!!!!

if your the kind rider that wants to learn/work your way up there, the 250 or a 500 is the way to go.. if you get a 600, you may learn how to ride it normally, but what if you hit that pothole in the road and your bike gets a bad headshake / tank slapper ?(thats where the handlebars are moving to the left and right uncontrollably) That 600 may of taught you to ride, but it didnt teach you the ways to get out of shyt. I cant count how many times my 250 has gotten a headshake from the roads of houston, and i correct them without even paying much attention to it.

Guaranteed you will learn more about riding on a 250 than on the 600 at first; and When you do move to a 600, you'll know alot about riding that you need to know, and you can concentrate on handling the power of the bike.

Everything hurts the same when your sliding on the road............that being said

the reason id get a 250 is what was stated above. Resale value on buying a used 250 is about the same when you go to sell it.

but it sounds like he already made a good choice.

You may be able to pick and chose like that once you are an experienced rider but as a beginner, I don't think picking a bike that 'fits you best' just by sitting on it. Heck, he may just have the best fit on a Busa.
