    Default Need Help In Choosing My First Superbike.

    Hi Guys, From The title You might know what i am going to ask. I am a bit confused in which Superbike Should i get. My Budget Is 6-7 Lacs. I Was Thinking Of a Hyosung GT650R. It seems to be a decent bike but then the reviews of the bike worries me. Some Of my friends were Suggesting me to go for a second Hand Hayabusa OR a R1 So i kindly need your help Please Help me choosing My First Superbike. Thanks

    Query Approved

    A legal Busa/ R1 at that price? I am not too sure.

    Why not buy a new Kawa/ Benelli 600ish?

    I would suggest the new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 650. Fits in your budget, looks awesome, weighs around 38kgs less than the Benelli tnt600 and and seems kind of all-round bike.

    Ooh but the sound of Benelli gives you goosebumps.

    Hyosung does not appeal to many people and would generally fetch a very little resale value.

    This is the ownership thread and would help you loads in deciding whether to go for it!

    You wont get a Busa or R1 for that price unless its a decade old bike and you got be sure from whom you are buying. IMO, I would stay out of such deals when someone offers at that price. Instead, I will look for a pre-owned Z800 or a Street Triple.

    If you want a new one, you can check the 600i and Z650. But all bikes has its own pros and cons. You must first make up your mind as for what purpose you are buying the toy for - daily commute, occasional rides, or just weekend toy.

    Decide and then look for options. Finance is also an important thing, as time goes by, it will eat up your bank balance for Maintenance and operational costs.
