Hey @MarkRoy welcome to the forum! Have you chose a R7 for your bike or are you looking at something else?
Yeah. This going to be my first bike/ Thank you for your advice!If this is your first bike, R7 is a good choice imo.
While R3 would be a better beginner choice, you'll 'out grow' it in 3 to 6 months.
Tho it is much more fun going 100% on a small/weak bike than 10% on big one thru twisties and what not.
R6 could be too much to handle, unless you're "mature" (for the lack of better explanation) and can control yourself/your impulses of 'accidentally' going full throttle.
It can literally reach 80mph in first gear. And you have 5 more... (R7 1st gear is about 55 I think, bouncing on the limiter)
R7 imo is a good bike for 2 years, until you figure out if you want more power, or different type of bike (adventure, cruiser etc), and those first 2 years will satisfy your super bike shrimp position thirst.
It also has great torque, so you'll be able to become a street wheelie hooligan
Welcome Mark, I think we’re both making a great choice wt the R7.Hi! I'm Mark,
