I had a yamaha V-star 650 that just felt too heavy for me. After selling the V-star I started looking at 250s. They fit me but just did not have enough power. I found the Suzuki s40. This bike is also a 650 cc but it only has one cylinder. The good news is that it is over 100 lbs lighter than my Yamaha. I just got it and i have only ridden it once. It feels jerky in first and second gear but smooths out in third. If i can get used to that one cylinder jerkiness, I think I am going to love my bike. I will ride some more and let you know.
