Yeap when i first saw the Kawi Z650 i fell in love with it, it was a monster engine back then but i was too young to even ride a big bike like that, so my plan b was to learn on my friend's 70cc enduro bike

Now there are 2 types of riding, one is commuting and one is weekend back road riding.

For commuting..... any bike will do, all you need to do is to pay attention to your surrounding because chances are you will only be riding at 30% of what your bike can do and you are more focused on not getting run over by the cagers than anything else, maybe open it up once in a while but that doesnt take any skills at all, it is all 100% on the motor.

Now weekend and back road riding is a different style, where your skill levels comes first and then the size of the motor, i have seen many 600cc bikes go faster than liter bikes out there, it is a whole new playground, if back road riding is your type of riding then i would highly recommend a 250 and that way get a better feel of the bike and practice without having the extra weight and hp to interfere in your learning process, i have seen too many riders go down that should have started on 250s but they let their ego choose a bigger bike just because they look cooler on it.
Now with this other cat I disagree. There are as many riding styles as you want them to be, they all requiere the same skill just in different settings, not everybody use them as comute and not everybody does backroads, being fairly new to this forum, I've found people who don't do streets at all but are track whores, good for them, some others use them as means of employment, go forth, for some are passion and for some are hobbies.

None of those riding styles requiere less of concentration or skills, what I do believe more is in knowing our own limits and level, yeah, everybody will try to push us, that is up to one if wants to play other people's games, I've seen peeps on 250 tearing the streets down and cats on 1000's murdering the woods, for me, just find something you can feel comfortable from the begining, not everybody has the same chance to increase the cc's often, so just trying to keep the OP with a clear mind though.

That is because all you do is your little 610 run you gotta crossed to the other side (back roads) so you can speak of it..... or you can just ask RouteMaster himself how his 610 run skills stacked up against the back roads

Lol, oh Franky, always taking it personal. You know how I avoid all this drama, I respect you and same as the trackies who I've disagreed before, mad respect as long as y'all keep doing it from the heart.

OP, I didn't meant to threadjack, was on the spur of the.moment and hope to see you out there sometime.

If you INSIST on buying new, one of the new Honda 500's would be a great choice. They have several styles to choose from too.



But, I'd tell you to buy a USED kawi/Suzuki 500. For the first year or so.

I bought my 500 AFTER I had experience for years with other and bigger engine'd bikes.

The 500 is a great engine size for both beginners and experienced riders.

Had my 500 for 6 years. Very fun bike.
