Which reinforces my point that this bike isn’t in the same league as the sv650 in terms of beginner bikes. Weight, imo, makes a big difference in noob friendliness. If we’re going by marketing class of bikes, the sv650s is billed as a sports tourer as well. Given the choice between looking at a sv650s or the gsx650f, the gsx650f would never get recommended by me to a new rider.
If there’s anything more important than my ego
around, I want it caught and shot now…
