So often do we read about will this bike be to powerful for me, will i come off because it has too much power. Well my honest opinion is if you twist the throttle too far on any bike, you are putting yourself in danger. Yes there are some menacing bikes on the market, be it 1400cc, 1000cc, 600cc, etc you will be able to do some mind blowing speeds. I often think why should you have to buy a 600cc because someone says its safer ?? Is it really any safer than that really gorgeous litre bike you have always dreamt of, and want to buy.. NO !! I got my fair share of flaming when i upgraded from the ZZR250 on to a new 05 ZX12R, but thats what i wanted, so thats what i bought. I was paying for it, i was insuring it, it was my money and it was my decision. All the salesman said to me before i left Cosways was, respect the throttle and you will be right for life. So when you are ready for your new bike, or ready for your upgrade, go test the bikes you want, and buy the bike that you really want, not what someone else wants you to have.
