I ran across this bike online and was thinking about getting it because of the price and I figure it would be a good bike to get more experience on. (ins would run about ~600/year paid in full, full coverage, or about ~100 down, 55/month.)

But I really like the R6 bikes...the early 2000's? to 2005 I believe, and there is a 2000(2001?) Honda CBR F4 in the area that looks pretty nice for 3,000. (ins would be closer to 1,200/year est)

I'm just wondering if it would be better for me to go with a 650 twin, as opposed to a 600 inline four... I know the 600's have about ~30-40 more horses, but I'm still not sure that it would really be too much, I think I could handle it.

I just don't want to get a twin, and then be ready to upgrade in a few months- a year. I want to find one I'll love for 3+ years.... any suggestions?


edit: forgot how much more the full coverage was for an inline four, going to go with a twin. Now to find one in my budget. lol.
Stick with the 650 twin.

They travel in the time of the prophets
On a desert highway straight to the heart of the sun
Like lovers and hereos, and the restless part of everyone
We're only at home when we're on the run
