Three words. Triumph Speed Triple. Check out the MO track test from last year. It has regular handlebars so you can replace 'em. It runs like a bat out of hell, will commute, run canyons, do wheelies, you name it.



If money is no object then, two words. Aprilia Tuono.



Or try a Suzuki SV1000S. Better ergos than the SV650S. Better for street work than the Super Hawk. You can upgrade the suspension for better track performance and it's relatively cheap.

Re: Three best suggestions yet...

I'm also surprised how nice the SV1000S looks with the optional lower fairing.

Re: racer size

When I was a kid my uncle would take me to the scrambles down where the Artesia freeway is in LA now. There were lots of Brit 650s and HD XLCHs competing. No 5'6" rider's at all. Imagine wresting a 500lb 65hp Sportster around an MX track. (shudder).
