Would the SV650 be a decent step up from the GS500F? I love the look of it but if its a beginners bike, i really dont want it as i already have one and will not be a beginner. And i would like to learn power wheelies my next bike (responsibly) would this bike allow my to do that? If not what other bike is there thats comfy enough to ride for hours and down right sexy but also have power? I also have in mind the Kaw ZZR-600 and the Hyosung 650r.August 15, 2008 at 6:57 pm #10627RabParticipant
From what I’ve seen and heard, the SV650 is enough bike for pretty much any sane application; regardless of experience level.
Sorry to be a killjoy, but in my book, “power wheelies” and “responsibly” don’t go together.
If you learn to wheelie, sooner or later you’re going to start doing it on public roads, endangering not only yourself but all other road users and pedestrians around you.
The only reason I can think of for anyone wanting to learn to do wheelies, stoppies, flamingoes, superman (Rollie Free), etc. is if they’re going to join the circus.August 15, 2008 at 6:57 pm #10628WeaponZeroParticipant
1. Don’t buy a Hyosung. Their reliability has proven to be questionable and despite the warranties, the shops are unable to do repairs on them because they can’t get parts.
2. The choice between the SV650 and the ZZR600 all depends on whether or not you’re willing to sacrifice top end speed/horsepower for low-end torque. The SV also has cheaper suspension components. It DOES have advantages over the ZZR600 in the way of ergonomics and the fact that it uses a powerplant more clearly designed for “real world” riding and “real world” roads, but that’s all a matter of preference. Unless you plan on doing triple digit speeds regularly I’d personally go with the SV because it’s proven time and time again that on canyon roads it can keep up with, if not pass, 600cc supersports.August 15, 2008 at 9:06 pm #10639BoOZe P-ti MotardParticipant
tell him..ok i will.. hey bud (not budd) go surf the site and read about some posts and other motorcycles… three years after you were born you started to walk..then follow the pattern for power wheelies… till then..sit back and enjoy the two wheels on the road… do you know dragging? good! then again enjoy your gs500f..
