It’s a fast bike! I would recommend starting off with a smaller displacement bike. But it is a great bike!

Hi Konrad, it is a LOT of motor for a beginner so it's not the best choice to start out on something with that much power, it can be done of course but it will be a handful. If you're not comfortable with basic bike-handling skills it would be strongly advisable to start on something more manageable (and lighter). That said, there have even been new riders that started out on a Hayabusa, and they do just fine. The important thing to remember is to NOT get enthusiastic with the throttle before you've become familiar with the bike.

What year bike are you considering? The early (pre-2018) models sometimes had a snatchy throttle, which makes fine-throttle control of the engine even more difficult. Get that fixed if your bike has that problem.

Otherwise, there's nothing about the bike that will hurt you. It's very well behaved, I use mine as a daily driver for commuting.
