That's one of the things I keep telling my self. Going from my current Nighthawk to the Ninja 300 I would drop almost 60lbs of weight. Even from a modern SV650 it would be over 40lbs. In my ideal world I would have a 300 and a supersport. One for just cruising around and one for when I want to got FAST. I can't have 2 bikes so getting an SV650 is a good middle ground and most likely where I will end up.
