The Kawasaki Vulcan S is a great pick for a starter bike. It's been reliable and fun so far, and I'm nearing the 600 mile break in period. The 650 engine out of the Ninja and Versys is re-tuned for a cruiser bike, but the speed and handling are still there. I've taken the motorcycle on a 5 and a half hour ride round trip and felt no discomfort, though I must say that I have the standard Ergo Fit package so your experience may vary. My friend bought a 2004 Rebel 250, a 2017 Rebel 300, and a 2014 CBR250R all due to the fact that he didn't feel like he had enough power. Starting with a 650 that handles as well as the Vulcan S remedies that, and I can guarantee as a starter you won't regret the pick.
