Welcome to motohouston, don't count out sv or 650r, both good starters.

Good luck in your search.

Getting a used bike is the best. Once you have some experience and gained confidence then go buy a new one. There are less tears if you tip it over. Good luck and don't go beyond your abilities.

I have a 2007 Ninja 500 that I'm getting ready to sell. Looks good from ten feet, but it has a bit of rash because it was my son's learning bike. It has around 10,000 miles. I think I paid $2800 back in June, I would make a good price in order to avoid the hassle of a Craigslist sale.

I'll take some pics if you're interested, just send a PM.

Check out my for sale thread on my 636. They are super fun bikes. Not too much power for a beginner yet enough you won't get bored. I know you said no older than 06 its an 05 but literally the exact same bike. Give me a call if ya like it. Welcome
