NEW BIKE!!

Hi, i'm nearly 17 and am looking for a 600cc or 650etc, and then restrict it to 33hp. Not a 250cc. I'm quite small for my age, around 5 foot"8. And i weigh only about 9 stone. I was looking at a Honda Hornet. But it looks pretty big for my size and maybe a bit to powerful- i'm pretty sensible and so wouldn't push it. I was also looking at a BMW G650 Xcountry, it only weights 150kg, and the seat it low and its a 650cc. What should i go for?? Would the honda be right? or too big? Or the BMW??

I would go for the 4cyl because they can handle strict emmisions better,honda/suzuki/kwakers,the weight makes no difference unless you want to drop the bike a lot:shock:.I`m 5`8``.5 and wish 9 stone,:biggrin:You can get a seat lowered by 1/2``:biggrin:

600s

I'm 5'8" and 9 stone as well.

The Bandit will fit you fine. I currently ride a BMW R1200 GS.

 

Now THAT'S a big bike.
