I really like the aggressive seating position on supersports, and their frame/ build. But all the beginner bikesI find have an upright seating position. Does anybody know any bikes that have that lean forward position but aren't 600cc or 1000cc? I liked the ninja650 or the cbr500 but those are also pretty upright. What do you think? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

If this is your first bike, don't worry too much about the seating position. Get the riding skills down and get comfortable riding on the street. You'll end up wanting a different bike soon enough. If you ride for any distance on a superbike you will discover it's not very comfortable except on the track. You will constantly see sport bike riders sitting up with one hand on the bars to stretch out their back muscles when they are on a ride longer than 30 minutes or so. Everyone is different, but the more upright position is more body neutral and easier for you to be aware of your surroundings, IMHO.

Ninja 250R is a great starter bike. Honda CB300 might be too, but more $$ since they haven't been around as long.
