    Hi, I am from Canada so my out of the door price will be different from US as our taxes and stuff will vary. Anyway, mine was CAD 11,500. I took a 1000 as it was the new model update versus the 650 which I think is a year or 2 old. But that should not be a big factor, as I heard the 650 is a great bike! My previous bike is a 1000 so that was one of my other reasons to go for a 1000.

    If you haven't ridden before, you will find that 650 is more than you can handle. Not that both are hard to handle. But experience counts. My advise will be to ride a 650 and see if that satisfies you. Then you can upgrade. Many guys I have heard are more than satisfied with the 650 so they never went to a 1000. Whatever your decision is both are great bikes and you will never regret, but perhaps you should build up your experience first. Cheers!
