If you are looking for looks and performance buy a GSZR 1000. Trust me!!! We had a yamaha ysf first bike and now we are satisfied with the gszr. it handles so much better and it's a numero uno at our house!!!

Don't buy a new anything. There are plenty of them sitting in people's garages with a couple hundred miles on them.
