Beginner Bikes!

  1. you will never be able to fully enjoy the potential of street bikes. that's why i think doing a full exhaust set up is pointless. the extra few horses you gain over a typical slip-on won't really be effective unless you're an extremely experienced rider and have some track time under your belt.
     
  2. If you're going to get a 600, you may as well just get a 1000. They're not that much harder to control.
     
  3. "there alot faster"
     
  4. nahhh. they're heavier, crazy faster, the power range is a lot lower so it's a lot easier to pull the front wheel up without trying and they're a lot more money. I don't think I'll ever get a 1000 unless it was like an MV Augusta or something Italian.
     
  5. The weight difference isn't that big and probably wouldn't even be noticeable to a beginner. The top speed of a 1000 is faster, but either will very easily go fast enough to kill you. 1000's have more low down power, but I would also argue that they have more predictable powerbands for a beginner. They are equally as responsive to rider input. The point is, if you can control a 600 racer, you can control a 1000.
     
  6. I know, but I'm not about to spend nearly 11,000 on a 1000. My friends have been joking to get a 1000 but it's not going to happen.
     
  7. I'm an experienced dirtbike rider, now considering a street bike once I have the money and time. I've read a lot about the Brutale 910R, but I would like to start on the Brutale 750S if I could ever get my hands on a decent used one. Has anyone heard much about it. Also, what are some other suggestions for a good naked bike. And no I don't want to hear your opinion on what a good starter bike is, if I should go smaller or any of that. Save me the BS and lets talk about bikes.


    Edit* Yes I know this is a beginners bike thread, but I can't start my own and there are a few people in here with good opinions about bikes.
     
  8. Brutale = Italian = $$$$

    How much are you looking to spend? From what I've read the Brutale is one of the best naked bikes you can get.
     
  9. you dont have testicles, thereby fail to understand what happens when you put young males on big bikes
     
  10. I'm going to try to spend less then $10k if I can. From looking so far i've found a lot of Brutale 910R's for just under that, but the 750 is pretty much impossible to find.
     
  11. It's not even a question of self control. You could put a Buddhist monk on a GSXR1000; if he does not know how quickly the bike responds to rider input, he will be in trouble.
     
  12. You're a noob and have no clue that I'm a guy you idiot!
     
  13. your name suggests differently, and i actually ride bikes, and i'm definaetly no nub
     
  14.  
  15. Thats exactly what I was referring to.
     
  16. Cagiva Mito 125, there is one for sale next to my house. K5 GSX-R exhaust and Hornet 600 rear tires, what might sound silly but actually don't.

    Discuss.
     
  17. im looking very hard at a triumph street triple for my next bike, based of a 675 daytona triple. They are very good value too, around 11,000 Au. Used ducati monster is a good buy too but you'd be better of buying late model as the factory kinda picked up its game in regards to reliability in the past few years. Over here a 620 monster is legal for learners so thats sort of worth looking at, but if you want a fast one, s2 or s4r are the way to go.
    The benelli TnT is supposed to be a wild ride but they are kinda pricey, but if your looking at a brutale 910 then you could probably afford a Tnt.

    Any of the jap four make decent naked bikes but if it were me buying a jap bike id go for a suzuki sv1000s. those things look so badass

  20. I could pick up a used Monster or a Triumph pretty easily in Pittsburgh. There is a European cycle dealership right up the road from me. I have to hold off for awhile now though, I have to pay for next semesters fees unfortunately. I think I might start out on a used Suzuki for a season, then save up my money for a nicer bike.
     
  21. My friend just bought a 2007 R6. He's owned one dirtbike for about 2 month. I'm acutally really concerned for him.
     
  22. He might be okay
     
  23. Anyone own a Vulcan 500? Hows it reliability wise, insurance etc?
     
  24. Damn its nice outside, the idea of taking the Gixxer from hibernation is extremely tempting... I know +10 is actually cold, I usually quit riding when temp reaches that at fall, but somehow spring chill looks warmer <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

     
  25. I'v been told its engine comes from the EX500/ ninja 500 so it reliable as hell. Probably one of the best starter bikes you could buy if you arnt too concerned about the sportbike look.
