An SV would be your best bang for your buck... plus it'll teach you how to ride faster(i.e. corner speed).

^^^^^^^^^ bad idea. You gotta anticipate that your gonna crash the outta your bike the first few times man. After you some experience then get a nicer bike. Besides i thought you wanted a cheap bike

define "that much" so we know what you want to spend.

There is a reason why an SV is so popular at the track. There are other bikes as cheap but not many as good for the money.

Some 01-02 600s can be found also. I picked up mine last year with a TON of extras, including a motor, spare set of body work, wiring, sprockets, LOTS of parts.. for 4K. I could have gotten just the bike for 3K. How much do you want to spend?

you check the WERA board?

seriously, a nice SV is right in your price range. You will be a better rider/racer for it.

Nope, I put over 60K on my first bike which was a Honda v-twin. That was road miles and a few years of track seasons. My Aprilia never gave me any problems either.

What problems have you heard? VFRacer knows the sv650 very well, he can probably answer specific questions.


Oh, I've been beaten by a few on the track. That's a slight problem.

V-twins have bullet proof engines.
I know at least two SV owners who ran their first gen SV over 100,000 miles with minimum repair.
But if you are that attach to I4, forget about SV.
It's not gonna be "good enough" for you.

You might try Powersports of Houston. Last time I was in there he had a Honda F3 and and a ZX6r that were track ready. ZX6r was around a 1999-2000 model...
