Although the FZ6 is a popular bike on this forum, I think it's safe to say that it's not a very good starter bike because of its power output. It's still a 600cc engine, and it still puts out close to 100hp.

I'm very happy to see more people debating on which bikes are beginner bikes! I'll have the thread updated with more bikes today if I can.

You're not a moron, you're just misunderstood.
