If you get a 600cc sportbike, you can't "just cruise" at 70. That is like barely in second gear I think. Just get a 250-500. There ia no shame in that. My friends GS500 was a blast learning on after i did MSF.

Like GoingToScotland said, 600cc sport bike will outperform 90% of cruisers so don't even compare the two.

You can quickly find yourself at speeds you may never think you want to go/thought you were going on a 600cc+ SS

To put things in perspective, the ZX6R will hit 80 in first.
