So to answer the original question, an sv650 is POSSIBLY a good starter. However, a smaller version, perhaps the 500 or 250 type bikes would be MORE suitable.
A 250/500 is much better than an sv650, but an sv650 is better than say….i-4 600s?
Me personally, I’ll stick with GS500F.

All the articles and blogs I have read say (98% of the time) that it a good first bike because its not as zippy as the 600cc bikes with inline 4’s.
I am going to get that same bike in about a week. Funny though, I bought the gear before I bought the bike..
What kind of gear are you going to get?
