Need Help Choosing A Bike

Sun May 19, 2002 2:18 pm

After prolonged discussion with my parents they finally gave in to the idea of me riding a sportbike I talked them into getting me a sportbike for my graduation out of high school. I am so damn happy I narrowed it down to two bikes the Yamaha R6 and the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R, what do you guys think?

How'd you pull that one off???

My mom would kill me if I got a bike, and I am 21!!!

Though out of my personal preference I would not get a crotch-rocket. I am kinda impartial to the BMW bikes, but they are pricey. More realistically I'd like a bike like a Honda Nighthawk 750.

My friends older brother has a few of them...his opinion? Get a Honda. They are fast, fun, good lookin, and most of all they last forever and they are at a nice price
Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, Staten, Uptown, what now? Lets make it happen.

Why don't you pick up an issue or two of Sport Bike magazine... they have a show on Speedvision and they do some pretty extensive and realistic testing. If you just like going fast and popping wheelies, those dirt bike/street bike hybrids are pretty good at doing that.

My dad had a 2000 R6, it was a great bike. I'm not sure if they haven't redesigned it since, though.

will you have a restriction on what displacement you can ride??
Anyways I suggest an Aprilia RS250(incredibly fast, light & beautiful) or a Kawasaki ZZR(very comfy & a perfect beginner's bike) for a 250cc, other bikes to consider are Aprilia Falco, Ducati 996/998 and MV Agusta F4....All are very capable ....I suggest the Kawasaki out of those two bikes you have selected, but ride both before buying and decide which one you like better based on experience. There is no point you getting a bike just cos we recommend it if you find it incredibly uncomfortable & hard to handle.
