Nah. 30hp leass at the wheel and better ergos for a newb. Less parts (air-cooled and no fairing) to worry about as well. Tried to get a friend to buy one as a starter since, as Squid Killer pointed out, once you get one, you usually keep them.BuRn__ said:its in the same newb class as an F2
NICE!Bad Habit said:I second that it is a great choice for a beginner. Not too much power, but enough, comfortable ergos, and handles pretty decently. They are very reliable, and they have a following, so it isn't hard to find out just about anything you need to about the bike. You won't be sorry if you get it.
p.s. Here's a pic someone posted a while back, that shows you can be squidly on one, too. :flipa
Squid Killer said:Believe me. Ive been riding mine since I bought it new in 1992. Its a very low power bike and would be great for a first bike. I use it for everything but racing. Its great for touring, commuting, and weekend rides.
I even rode my to Alaska once. I will never sell this bike.
Get a fizzy :leghump , the pic isin't of mine...but damn they are fun bikesGimpdiggity said:I would really like to have a SECA II. I think if I don't end up being able to get the Ducati that is kinda mine, I may end up looking for a SECA II. I really like the looks...kinda naked, kinda not...and they seem to fit what I want in a bike...
