Hi guys I'm on the lookout for a new/near new learner legal bike A few i have in mind the Honda VTR250 I've heard nothing but positive reviews about this bike. Is there an 08 model out yet? The dealers i went to only had the 07 A few concerns i have with this bike are the lack of 6th gear - how high does it rev/have to work at highway speeds? Do you notice it? It's a 250. I'm a tall guy (about 190cm) so do look a bit odd on smaller bikes, but i don't mind if it's a decent ride. The Suzuki GS500 Also heard nothing but good things about this bike re it's reliability How does it perform compared to the 250's in regards to acceleration, turning circle etc? How does it sound? Would you outride this just as quickly as a 250 once off your P's? Hyosung GT650 (new) I've heard they aren't so reliable, but the later models are a bit better? Does anyone know the power figures of this when restricted? I can't seem to find it anywhere. How do they compare to a sports 250? What is the turning circle like, can you do the U-turn in the P's test with this bike? Can you re-restrict them once de-restricted (say you wanted to sell them as a learner bike again) How do they hold value?
