Tried replying earlier, but somehow the post did not make it through. Here's my piece of advice. I was confused as you, eager to get into the 600 class. Hyosung was readily available but not the N650r. But am glad i waited, the N650r is a class apart, the engine is quick, loads of power on the low & mid range and believe me, no matter what the others say, it is a way better bike in terms of performance and quality than the Hyosung. So, it all boils down to this, is your money precious, go in for the N650r. Its a Kawi bro, you are not making a mistake in anyone's opinion. Welcome to the 600s whenever you are ready!!
