Yea its to do with power to weight, we cant have any of the 2 stroke 250's, but we can have a vfr 400, or xr 650's, just that all teh 600's we can have are trial bikes not road bikes and id prefer a roadbike.

u can buy a 600 Ducati brand spanker on ur L's and P's

all u have to do is mod it a touch and it will run like a full blown weapon. Throttle is just limited so i have been told.considered it a few months ago.. nice lookin machine. but all Ducatis are!!!!!!

here's the voice of reason, if you haven't ridden on the road before, be sensible and get a 250, power is not the be all and end all, a 250 will give you more than enough opportunity to kill yourself, and before you ask, yes I am, or make that was, and want to be again, a rider, I owned a GSX250 and then a GSXR750 2003, lets just say, I'm glad I had the 250 first.

If you want a great first bike look for a good S/H Suzuki Across, great learner bike.

don't let vanity kill you.

Some 250s are more powerful than larger capacity, you cant tell me a R65 is a speed machine, it was my mrs first bike, or an old Ttrumpy, makes sense
