Some of the bikes posted so far are awesome, but I'd hate to drop one of those. If I bought a cheap ninja or something around 2500, I'd chalk it up to learning instead of worrying how I just ruined my awesome bike.
I agree, for a in city bike, 250s, 500s... Those are fine. But it's a matter of safty, on the freeway, that you be able to goose it, and get out of a tight squeeze. There are 500s that can do that, like a buell blast. (If you can find one. Great bikes) But most sub 650 bikes are fairly slow accelrating past 65 or so.

Those are all sportbikes, but people seem to get this idea that you need a 1000cc bike to be "fast". Being fast, especially in anything other than a straight line is lot more about technique and control.
