You might also check out the Kymco Venox 250. It's more of a crusier, but it has alot of power. I've taken one for a ride with my wife on back and we were able to take it out on the freeway and easily cruise 70 MPH with enough power to pass easily.. I must say i was impressed with that bike.

Just get a Suzuki SV650S. It's a great first sportbike that you won't outgrow quickly. I've been riding for 16 years, my SV is more fun and easier to ride on the backroads than either my BMW R1100S or my GSXR-750.

I hope no one is making biased generalizations about Japanese piano players all being superior to our native ones and advising people not to listen to them.... I agree on the bike advice but have to throw in that my American car and bike have both racked up many economical, trouble free miles with no more difficulties or maintenance requirements than my Japanese, Italian, or German ones. I plan on driving both into the ground, which I guess points out that I wasn't worried about resale since I bought what I wanted--unworried about return on something that's a non-investment from the start. Buy/Ride/Drive what you want.

I think you should stick to piano playing. Hopefully know know more about that than you do about cars.

Or maybe he should get a Concours or VFR?

Hyosung has a distribution deal with United Motors. Find a UM dealer and you'll be fine. Hyosung's US base is Norcross GA. I know this because I applied for a District MGR job with them. They are working on a dealer network so be patient. The bikes are, in the most basic sense, Suzuki rip-offs. The engineering is there. The dealers are coming and the first reviews are positive so far.

Where did this idea of vehicles being an "investment" come from? Aside from the odd rarity a purchase of any new vehicle is a dead loss. Some are worse than others, but cars and motorcycles are not "investments". An investment is something that increases in value. The only motorcycle that did increase in value was American anyhow. But even the owners of those didn't really make any money when you figure in the costs of owning a motorcycle.



If you buy a vehicle for $10,000 and sell it for $12,000 after spending several thousand on finance charges, tires, insurance and maintenance you have still made a bad investment.

I think it's better to say an investment is something you hope/expect to increase in value. If you ever worked for a company that issued an IPO in the late 90s you'd be very clear on that one, as I am unfortunately.
