I am looking at getting my first bike (on my L's of course) - I have looked at a heap of bikes and have decided that I like the fully flaired bikes. I am currently tossing up between the 2009 Ninja 250R and the GSX650FU. My concern with the Ninja is that it might be a little underpowered (reviews I've read say that you really have to push it high in the revs to get it going) and the concern with the GSX650FU is that it is a really big bike weighing 220kg. I'm about 5'10" and 95kg, so I can probably handle the suzuki, but I'd hate to drop it, especially if it's new. The Kawasaki is probably a better bike to learn on being small and less capacity, and I can always upgrade once I'm fully licenced. What do you all think?
