Getting used to how fast a vehicle is should be done in stages. The hardest lesson is realizing just how fast you can be going in just a few seconds. You might be able to physically handle the power, but you could wind up going faster than you can react or stop if something unexpected happens such as someone pulling out in front of you.

Seems like the OP already decided on an answer and just wants it justified by others IMHO.
Thanks from BROsiah

What kind of people do you know?

The world is full of idiots with no respect for their fellow humans.

We as bikers generally place ourselves above typical scumbags and try and offer good advise.

Not crap advise.

I've always suggested a used SV650. Much more usable power and handling than a 250 so you won't get bored and worry about your friends ragging on you. You can also Frankenstein it with the many Gixxer 600/750/1000 parts.

It's always better to lean how to ride on a raw bike then start with a powerful bike with rider aids.

I'm beginning to wonder if there is someone out there, creating usernames and posting these first bike posts for a laugh....

In the event you are serious and you intend to ride, get a smaller bike and learn the basics, buy a bigger bike later and be sensible in the first few years.

About a week ago I followed a guy on a CBR600. He was all over the place and I suspect had just passed his test. Could barely touch the ground, no clutch control and clearly had low confidence. Add in a Panigale and he'd have been through the first hedge he'd come to.

I'm sure I can look in this exact forum and find someone saying "it only goes as fast as you make it go".
