Re: Beginner Track Bike: Opinions?
I don't think the R6 is too terrible to learn on at the track. They handle great and you've got to be working it pretty hard before you have to start worrying about traction. If you've got the spare cash and want a second bike so you're not at risk of wadding up your street bike it seems pretty reasonable to go shopping.
SVs make great track bikes from what I hear, and that one has all the standard upgrades you'd look for - most notably, the suspension. You should find out what spring rates you need, cause if what's on there is way off it may be a less attractive deal if you're going to have to pay to respring it.
