I mean even as far as lower displacement bikes go, the Suzuki GW250 is one of the most boring in riding experience. You could look into other lower displacement bikes instead if you are wanting more power, but those bikes are usually more expensive.

Whatever you choose @Sonnen, please be sure to let us know what you end up deciding on.
My friends have been lecturing me about buying a new bike too. Warrenty is a big thing to consider for. Some friends however did mention bikes required little to no effort work and maintenence. So most fixes I can do myself. Not sure about that one.

but comparing a 2013 to a 2006 is kind of hard.
I have thought the same way the gs500 nearly 10 years old. surpringly the styling is off by much. But I know what you mean with the gap and not knowing the history of motorcycle itself

I hvae a bunch of friends who onw more bikes than they can even handle. Most of them own a high displacement and one lower (250cc). Whenever they hit a track especially a small one they take the 250. Power is nothing they say and I can really see why.

I will keep you guys posted

For me the cheaper insurance due to it being a 250cc was the deciding factor.
