I rode a 2001 Honda shadow vlx 600cc for a few months but I had to sell it to buy a car. I would drive it daily city and highway. Topped out at 110mph and I wanted more. I built some credit and have like $1000 down payment and now I m itchin to get a street bike for like Sunday mornihg highway riding at high speeds (I would practice first). Any suggestions? I live in Florida so I don t need to get it insured so there s that in terms of crashing a new or used bike. What should I get? I m so tempted to buy brand new (I always do) but I d be getting into long term financing so I need to get something I won t get bored of (Honda Cbr 650f?) then again being a novice rider I d much rather lay down a $3000 bike instead of $8000. I know there is a million factors but I m so torn between buy a new bike respect the power, do your research, and grow into it or buy used $3000 ride for a year and re sell. The 2-4,000 range at dealerships is always limited and I m scared of getting a junk bike that I gotta keep fixing. I did that with the Honda shadow.
Seems pretty silly to help a beginner (yes, you are still a beginner) rider pick a faster motorcycle for the street.
Oh, should it be new or used? Hey, either one can kill you just as fast so YOU pick your poison.
Get a ZX14! Spend the extra $300 to replace the Electronic Control Unit and work your way up to exceeding 200mph in your second week!
INSURANCE! Will cost an arm and a leg… but that's okay, you will only need insurance for a week or two anyway.
Fill out an organ donation card before you get the new keys! ….Good bye!
Assuming you are merely stupid, instead of a troll ….

Get a used 160 mph 4-cylinder 600cc supersport. Get in a gang (hey, they call they "clubs" but in actually they are criminal gangs) so you can ride with 50 or so other idiots on the freeway and harass the cagers. You will have fun until you crash, but Hell, you cannot understand anything motorcycles than speed.
Look for a used Yamaha V-Max with V-boost. top end is around 202. Great ride and a mean looking bike to boot.
street bike. All motorcycles street legal are street bikes you mental midget
