Go for a CBR 600 F4i. Comfortable banana seat for all riding conditions, good performance and fuel efficiency, hassle-free maintenance.

For about 5-6, you could get a 04-05 model. If you can extend that budget by a lac, for about 6.5-7, you could get a new one. Obviously, a new one is better.

Hiya HONDA,
Please go to someone very reliable and ask him to look for a good preowned bike. There must be plenty of well maintained middle classers (600/750) around. People who have owned these for maybe a year or two and want to upgrade to an open classer (900/1000). If this is your first SBk, my honest advice to you would be to TAKE it VVERY EASY!
These things can get to 60 mph before you can read this sentence and have explosive power bands..basically they are not toys. For the time being a 600 would be ideal for you and believe me there are extremely few people in the world who can exploit the capablities these bikes can offer..and on the track too!!
Contact Johnny he always has some pristine bikes around and would advice you with all the formalities, history, etc..
I actually saw a beautifully maintained, very low GENUINE mileage CBR 600 at his place last week that was for sale..

Good luck
Cheers!

Strong agreer with AP on this one. Stick with a 600 since u havent owned or extensively used one before.
In terms of power, you could get something with higher bhp on your budget,but a 600's bhp is sufficient. You wont be complaining

Hey buddy ....... could u be a bit more specific ? .... first SBK or first Bike ? !

If by any chance its ur first bike , even a 400 CC would be too much

If its your first SBK ...... still any 600 CC would be quite a handful ......... If ur interested in a brand new bike , checking out Dream bikes in Pune should help .......
