CB500R if you want new. Ninja 500 (EX500) if on a tighter budget.

SV650 gets my vote. Fast and manageable for a new rider.

Welcome Capita! A few of the Marines I've run into like the Kawi' 650 as their first bikes. It looks great, they like the ergonomics, and thus far, none of them have "grown out" of them! Just my .02! My first sport bike was the 05 Kawi 636, definitely not a great 1st sport bike, but I learned a lot, took advise of serious riders, and stayed level headed. It made a pretty good street bike and excellent track machine! When I was stationed in Houston, TX, I got to attend open track days at the Houston Motorsport Ranch in Cresson & it was a "humbling" experience, but it did teach me cornering, entrance/exit techniques, to respect the machine, and higher CC's aren't everything!

That's it. Oh, and don't buy new... you will regret it.

Distant thunder, cold as stone. An RC bellows from its throne. One by one, each bike succumbs. Something wicked this way comes.
