i want to buy a new bike and i am thinking around the 600cc range. i had a ninja 500r and think i am ready to upgrade. anything above 600 looks a little too big for me and the seats seam to sit a little high. i am thinking about the suzuki gsx-r600 or the cbr 600. which is the better one?? or r there better ones out there i should consider?

SV650? But don't listen to me. I'm a bit biased. :)

how many miles did you put on the 500? did you take the MSF?

and yeah, the suzuki SV650 is a great 2nd bike.

Suzuki makes it. What do you mean, stand? You mean, put my feet down? :confused Because if you are, you're asking an very short person (26" inseam) and I've done a bit of work to make mine where I can touch with the balls of my feet.

They're both terrific bikes. I think the GSXR has a bit more in the way of "soul" but they're pretty much apples and apples. Go with the one that makes your heart pound.
