Default Which Motorcycle Is Appropriate?

I am looking to get a 250cc - 500cc bike. I would like it to include a fuel gauge, and I'd like it to be sporty (but not a crotch rocket). It is my first bike so I won't be going all out on it, and I don't mind it being a few years old. I have been looking at Ninjas, but other than that I haven't been able to find many details on other 250cc - 500cc bikes. I am 5'3"and 130lbs. If you think that I am stretching my weight ratio on any of these please let me know. For the last year I had been set on getting a Yamaha FZ6, but now I am worried that it will be too heavy for me.

Your weight ratio to bike size is a non issue. YOu are definitley not too heavy fo any bike in that range. You are fine for a moped . Your weight will most definitely not tax the engine and for what it was designed to do. Do not worry about that. The bike you are looking at is more than adequate to meet your criteria plus there are many many others by Japanese maufactrers that can also meet yourneeds. Honda/Suzuki and Kawasaki all have some in that range and price point. Bike for bike, Honda will ususally cost a few hundred more thatn the others. But they are all of good quality. Nothing in the Harlrey Line will meet your needs. Their smallest displacement(CC) is 883cc unless you go to their sisster make...Buell at 650 CCBe sure to find a delar who will let you test ride before you purchase....One more thing, it will be very difficult to find a bike at that level with a fuel gaugeGood luck with your search ------
