2012 Suzuki S40
I started out on a Honda Rebel 250 as it was light weight and one I could handle. I moved up to a 2012 Suzuki S40 (LS650) as it was only 50 lbs. heavier than the Honda Rebel 250cc bike. I am 5' 8" and 120 lbs. so having a lighter bike appeals to me. The ride and power of the Suzuki makes it a safer bike to ride as you can get out of the way of traffic quicker. I don't regret learning on a smaller motorcycle as it gave me the confidence to move up to a larger one.
