i own a firebolt, white one. it is a wonderful bike. brakes are wonderful. the bike looks good too. if you are looking for a "race" bike this is not what u want. dont get me wrong. compared to tl, crb or gsxr, they will eat my xb alive. but when it comes to the corner, then the xb will absolutely eat them alive.. all of them at once. there is so much torque on it. but for a street bike. i would recommend it. it wheelie very easily, about 4500 rpm on 2nd gear, u can do the same on 1st gear. the suspension is great. it really needs to be dialed in to have more fun riding it, otherwise you will probably hate the bike just by the suspension alone. but once you dial it in, they are great. you will not be disappointed.
by the way.. i used to ride a gsx r 600 (2000) and R6 (2002)
go buy one
