Hey people. Im a new rider and have 0 experience with Supersport bikes. I play around with dirtbikes here and there, but I have been on the verge of buying a true sportsbike, and the gas prices just made my urge a little stronger. I was going to start on a Kawi Ninja 250, but i cant find any and many have told me that i might want to start with a 600, since i would outgrow the 250 pretty quickly. I dont want to purchase a 250, and then be tired a year down the line. So the only battle for me was going for a new bike or used... All answers from experienced riders came out to be used. Justified by the "There are two types of riders" theory, I was convinced. Now there is a 2006 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R (636) and a 2003 Honda CBR 600rr... I would like to know which would be a more rider-friendly machine for daily (street) driving. Also where would the prices lie for the:
*2006 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R (636) - 15,500 miles
*2003 Honda CBR 600RR - 11,000 miles

LAC_12, you need a turbo busa with NOS. Anything less, and you'll eventually outgrow it.
