I'm 5'8 and 145 pounds. I don't think I'll be much weight for the bike.
I'm 6'2 190. What bikes have you been on to know what torque feels like?

People answered, but no you won't

Just seems they are better suited for a race track than riding around on the street
Thank you for your input as an actual rider. I have owned an f4, gpz550, f3, 954, ninja 250 and gsxr600. I know a little bit about bikes and i was more than happy with the 250. Actually hoping to buy another 250 tonight about at least before 5pm tomorrow when the seller has a buyer coming.
