On the one hand, the Complete Idiot’s guide lists the “mini monster” as a good beginners bike, and indicates that the FZ6 may be one.
The logic of how they came up with a 4 bike list with these four escapes me. Especially since the Buell looks, to me, to be a little small to be a great choice for many members of the heavier sex, including the guy in the picture. If you have the FZ6, why not the Suzuki 650SV or the Kawasaki Ninja 650R? If you have the Buell and the Ninja 250, where are all the other bikes recommended on this site?
