I used to have a zx-6r, and I've been itching to get another bike for a while now. My finances are kind of low with a new young family, so although I can maybe afford another 600cc sportbike I can't justify it. I can easily justify a smaller cc bike because of the el cheapo insurance and also the smaller purchase price (especially if I can get a used bike). I'd use it for commuting and quick jaunts around town. So my question is, who has ridden a smaller cc bike (for example, 250cc) lately? Exactly how disappointing is it compared to your sportbike? Is there any element of "fun" with these smaller bikes? I was looking at something like the Suzuki Marauder 250cc or maybe the Honda Rebel. Or maybe even a 200cc enduro.
