My advice would be to go through something bigger. The absence of power in those bikes will get very boring very quickly. Its no a renowned opinion about here ns know but a 250 vstar is just a waste of money.

Edit: had actually a reble and it to be a an excellent bike for around 3 mainly then really boring. Just throwing that out due to the fact that you asked because that advice native owners.

I'd go through the honda, probably much more reliable however definitely lighter. However really it's up to you and also what you choose more.

My only hesitation with the Honda is the it's around 15cc less and also some of the evaluate say it's a little bit cramped. I'm only 5'9" though, so i was simply trying to see if I can find someone through some endure on one to gain their input!

I have, actually. The trouble is, I'm in the Atlanta area and there are simply not a lot of around. The just ones I've to be able to uncover have to be newer, and I'm honestly no looking to spend much more than $1500-2000.

Sit on and also ride both. The Rebel is noticeably smaller.

I can't yes, really say anything because that the Honda, various other than ns ride Honda now, and love them.

As because that the Virago, i learned come ride ~ above a '95 Virago 250. That bike was a little slow, a little weak and also a little little for me. However bloody hell was it a an excellent bike to find out on.

It begs to be thrown around, If it suits you, it have the right to be bloody comfortable. That will lug luggage.

The best component of it, is that you simply can't bloody kill the thing. Fuck, ns tried. It had actually been dropped, stalled, left alone for months ~ above end, rung out and also overloaded through a good couple of hundred KG. However the bloody thing still goes, 20 years later.

Not saying to obtain it, but just the if this one is anything choose the one i rode, girlfriend will never kill it.

I started on a V-Star 650, and also I have actually loved every second of it. I know why you might want to begin on something smaller sized (and by every means, if that's what friend want, walk for it), yet the lack of torque and speed may become prohibitive rather quickly. I have actually only ridden because that a year, and I am upgrading right here soon.
