    Have you ridden before? if yes, they i'd suggest you start with a 400 and then upgrade after a few years. if not i'd suggest you buy a 125 and learn the basics first.

    i drove zx64...for very first time....and i did around 25km on very first day....but no speeding over 70km/h and not above 3rd gear......

    just learned stop and go and shifting gears.....

    s ports bike is more easy to handle then those 125cc bike...i dont know why....but i feel more easy with sports bike then those road bikes

    well if u have ridden before then go for zx7r the best in handling and grip..or zx2r in 250 class ..this sunday there was a add for a 1999 model blue YZF R1 it was somthing around ur range..
    honest opinion ..enthusiasm aside buy a bike accorind to ur skills ..like i got stichies on my face and some fractures ..
    best of luck

    I agreed @ storm.

    As if u have experince of riding 100s & 125s then u shud go for ~ 400CC & if u r bigener then by a 125/150 & learn to handle it on turns & sudden breaks. A good rider of small bikes can quickly learn to handles bigger bikes.

    thx guys for ur posts.

    i hav got some experience with yamaha 125 cc , so the basics wont be a problem.
    i m also not a speed junkie, i do that on my 4 wheeler, but i wont mind high acceleration for the G force rush.
    i want a cool bike which is also suitable for everyday use.
    must have
    - good handling
    -high acceleration (top speed is not an issue)
    -low mantainence
    - easier to find here in pakistan and repair , parts avaliability etc.

    Look, now a days you don't get good 125's and 400's in mint condition. I'm not saying that this cannot be done but probability is rare. However, looking at the budget you have, i think you should go for a 600. The up models are very light weight and powerful and are more easy to ride then old 400 and 125. My first bike was a 1000cc CBR-F. I got the hold of it in a single day.

    It's not always the bike, its the rider that matters. But always better to start from smaller ones..Go up the ladder from the first step, that is..

    Agreed Foosa,

    But hurting can also be done at 250 or 400 level. The guy is saying that this would be his first heavy bike. If he thinks that he can go for a 600 striaght away (he also has the budget)there is no harm in it and he will get the hang of it in few days - You right ! situation might differ from rider to rider.
