Welcome. Be careful out there. Have you ridden before? That 600rr may not be the best beginner bike...

I've ridden years ago on a harley cruiser. that was only on two occasions so I have basically no experience. I was told a 600rr would be good because its a bike I would not get bored with. a friend of mine said if I get a bike with less cc's I would be looking to trade it in sooner. this theory seems to make sense to me, but I've yet to begin training to see what's best for me. I like the look of the CBR over others so I know I'll be getting it soon, but any advice is much appreciated.

Thank you Lococnc

Certainly opinions vary, but starting on a 600cc rocket that can quickly get you in trouble is only slightly better than starting on a 1000cc rocket...
I am biased, but something like an EX500, or the Ninja 300 is better to start with, and cheap. If you get bored then sell and upgrade. I have a SV650, it is a V-twin so it is a different behaved engine than that cbr will have. You can easily get a EX500 for less than 2k, and the Ninja 300 for less than 3.

Also, look up insurance rates on bikes before buying. If you are young with no experience, that supersport is going to cost a fortune to insure.

Yeah I've been looking into the 250 and 300. I read that the 250 is a good starter but the too speed is just 60-70 mph. Is that true? I want something faster, but i don't mind starting small and upgrading.

After some modifications I got mine up to 115 on the back roads. On the track I've gotten up to 90-95. My wife loves the 250.

Even the SV650 would be a little more beginner-friendly than a 600RR. Part of that is that the twin's powerband is a little more linear than the i4 of the supersports.

Now if you're more worried about the looks, you might check out the CBR300r. In my opinion it's one of the better looking entry level bikes out there.
