Default 2001 Suzuki Bandit 600? Newbie Friendly?

Looking into getting this as my first bike. I'm 6'3 200lbs. Was wondering if this 600cc engine is considered a newbie friendly bike. Any experience?

Great choice actually, keep the rpms low at first as you learn and you should do fine.

Good choice agreed, great bike for a beginner. Just don't let other riders talk you off it, at least for two years. Just my 2. Good Luck and remember it happens when you least expect it, so cover that clutch and be ready!
