But yeah a FZ1 might be too much and more expensive, maybe an FZ09?

cityguide Look at an R6 or a CBR600.

Where sportbikes on the street are concerned, speed is not (or should not!) be a big concern. A good chassis and strong motor are, not to mention good handling.

These bikes are plenty fast off the showroom floor, and mods can make them faster. In the meantime you can hone your handling skills, which will only get better with more seat time, as previously noted. Three years is a lot, but there is no upper limit to experience.

When you begin to find your bike's limitations in corners, braking, response, etc., you'll begin modding it accordingly. As that happens, you'll find the real meaning of speed and what it can do for you.

done an accidental wheelie and crashed,
but after 3 months, it was too slow and i wanted more power.
Though it was for off road use only.

However, here's the Quebec blacklist

Which mean it will cost over 1100$ for the license plate alone each year.

At first i though a Yamaha FZ 1 would be the best,
but what's you guys recommendation?

Thanks
Now let me get this straight . . .

Crashed your 525 KTM !

Want a faster bike ?
