Hey guys, this is just a curiosity of mine and won't be plausible till years. But how much experience should one have till you jump to a super sport like the zxr6 and 10. Also I've heard insurance gets insanely expensive on those bikes.
I am in no rush, like I said I'm keeping my bike for years to come but I am just curious. I've got several years of off-roading atv's and dirtbikes, which I know helps but is not the same. Thanks

its all about each rider. I know some people who start on a zx14 or a busa. I know others who start on a 250. I've seen this go both ways on all bike sizes as far as being just right or two much. That's why I say it's a per person basis but I'd think most would be more comfortable going for a 650 to a 600 vs anything bigger. I say this because you basically are an advanced begginner. Everything changes and you have to re learn everything but you will hopefully pick up up way faster than a new beginner. You will find you need to really rely on body position more on a super sport than the 650. Still need to ride using your legs but is a crucial first step to put into place. Once you get that and body position you will have already learned most of the other steps you need. Smooth consistent throttle control is and will be your friend at learning on a super sport. Other than that. No experience needed haha.

Throttle control is KEY. The bike only goes as fast as you tell it to. Like byte said, rider position will also be an adjustment you will need to make and get used to since you ride a "sport touring" bike right now. Super Sports are a whole new world.

WOW..Glad I in the UK, 51yrs young, and pay around £15 ($23 or so) per mth on a ZX6R :D

As for when to when to jump on one, I started on a Z250 at 17 and after 6mths got a Z1000 and had it for four years, down to the person in my eyes, seen young pll who have been riding for mths, which you can tell are good, and also seen ppl that have ridden for years, that I would not trust on a push bike with stablisers :facepalm:
