(CLIFFS AT THE BOTTOM) Hello all. I'm looking for a first bike, and I realize that 600SS arent generally recommended for beginners, but I have a question. First off, I'm signed up for the MSF in early August (Im very excited, but a little nervous ). So assuming that I pass and I feel very comfortable on the 250 in the class (By all means, after taking the class, I may end up getting a Ninja 250). But if I do feel very comfortable, I was thinking about picking up an 03 Suzuki SV650s, which although being more than 600cc, pretty newb friendly. I'm pretty sure that the 03+ SV's are fuel injected. A friend will be upgrading from his 99 Yamaha R6 (which I believe is carb'd). And its my understanding that FI is faster than carb'd. So a new FI r6 (03+ I think) would be significantly faster than the older carb'd R6? My question is, will an older carb'd R6 be that much faster than a new FI SV650s? The R6 is a beauty, and I can get a very good deal on it but I'm very reluctant to get in over my head with something too jumpy and powerful. Thanks, and sorry for the long read CLIFFS: Will an older carb'd R6 be a lot faster than a new FI SV650s? Too much for a fresh msf graduate/newbie?
