Ten years is a big absence in time, not to mention how m/cs have changed in that time to superior power & handeling.
The Bandit would be a good buy. I have a '97 YZR600r I like for its ease of handeling, super stopping power, superior MID-RANGE engine power rather then peaky 600s. Though also have a '00 Honda 929, but note the 600 is the lst bike I bring out in the Spring & last to put away in late Autumn or early winter. IF I ever lost that 600 I would try to purchase another with a more mid-range better powerplant. Lastly the 600 gains more used miles each year then the 929 due to a lot of short to medium runs FOR it has a comfortable saddle like the Bullit has!!!!!!
