the gixxer1000 will have more power than he'd know what to do with.
if this is his first bike ever and he hasn't been riding at all, buying a 1000 is a pretty ballsy but dumb move.

True! Unfortunately, he'll most likely tank-slap around town, and be toast the first time that the front wheel lifts up while in gear. I'll even wager that he'll ride around in jeans and a t-shirt rather than full leathers/boots/etc.

BMW doesn't make a small enough bike for him. He needs to be looking at a 250/600 from the Big 4.

+1. When you learn to ride you will make mistakes. A liter bike will punish you for it. My first bike was a Ninja 250. It never felt slow or underpowered even with my 225lb ass on it. It also handled better than most of the big bikes and if ridden properly could keep up with most of them through the twisties.

Nice bikes fellas....

What levers are you using paul? I'm using Rizoma levers/rearsets.

if you respect the bike a 1000 should be fine...the seat hight is shorter and the rear tire is wider....proboally a bit safer...but its all in the rider. Go fast when its safe and drive cautiously.

Respect isn't the only consideration. New riders will make mistakes, and a liter bike will not be forgiving like a 600.
