Hi All, I’m getting my learners permit in 4 wks and am completely new to the bike scene. I’ve set my mind on a naked but am tossing up between a Honda Hornet 250 or Suzuki Bandit 250. I was told by a guy at Sumoto in Melb (they seemed to be the only place that sells Hornet 250’s) that the Hornets won ‘bike of the year’ several yrs in a row in Japan. I’ve also noticed that the Bandits are generally cheaper. Please post your thoughts, experiences with these bikes and recommendations. Thanx for all your help.
