    Has it got be a honda?

    How long have yo been riding your bike as you might be experienced enough to jump over the 300 class and straight into a 600+

    Saw a honda cbr 500 r yesterday. Looks really nice.
    If you dont want the power of a sports 600 then the 500 would be excellent.
    i believe its an A2 bike so has about 45 kw, might be wrong. It will teach you all about handling and general bike control and give you confidence to move up to another class later.

    Forget about 300 CCs - go straigh for 600
    You will grow out of less than 600 in a matter of weeks.

    Worth riding a load and getting a good handle on what you want, what really floats your boat.

    Try new demos and then if you dont have the budget then just buy an older versio of the one that you like so you will at least havea decent impression iof what it is like.

    worth loking at:

    • Honda cbr650 f
    • kawa er6f
    • tri daytona 675
    • yamaha mt07


    That is a mix of bikes and you will have an idea what you really like.

    What Tachydude said.

    There's loads of choice so if you can decide on a style you prefer it would help narrow down the options. (ie. racer, cruiser, tourer, scrambler, custom etc)

    Also depends on your riding confidence and budget of course.
    What will you use it for, commuting, weekend fun or long tours?

    Keep in mind that any bike you get will be intimidating at first but depending how much you ride you could outgrow it quite quickly so its perfectly fine to go straight to a 600cc.

    I think most people choose a bike because they like the looks more than power, handling etc. Most bikes of similar power will perform the same so mechanical differences are less of an issue.

    I expect looks and comfort would be the higher priorities for most people.

    Any cbr wouod be perfect for you. soooooo easy to ride and still have stlye and power and hold their value very well so when you next change it you might be surprised how little dosh you lose on it.

    You can get an early CBR or a late one and you will NOT EVER regret it, for however long you keep it.
    If you have the budget , get as new a bike as possible and it is more likely it will have stuff like ABS and other safety stuff.

    I would say go big... you dont have to use all the extra power all the time but it dioes give you more options.

    cbr500 sounds like a decent shout, but try a cbr600 or new cbr650 in case you think that the extra power is good.

    Ah, but only if you have a full license.
