Hi! I'm Mark, and I've joined since I'm doing research for my first bike purchase later this year. It appears that the ideal bike for me has been selected. But I'm still considering it.
I also wanted to thank everyone that posts information here for me to read! I've enjoyed reading all of the posts and seeing all of the photos of such a gorgeous bike!

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

Hi! I'm Mark,
Welcome Mark, I think we’re both making a great choice wt the R7.

While I’ve been riding sport bikes on street n track for more than 20 years, I don’t look at the R7 as a beginner or ex-racers moto, I look at it as a sweet platform that will be a blast for all level riders!
