Not sure what you mean by size. Most here have 650's. I own a 1000...since its a 650 + 350. So I get another half a motorcycle worth of power.
If you mean are they different in size. No, almost identical except the 650 is a little shorter due to a different seat. The 1000 weighs about 30 pounds more....apparently horsepower is heavier.
Can you ride it...I think so. Is it a good beginner bike.....uhh, thats tougher because I am on bike number 20 or so and an older guy. I started out on dirt bikes and my first street bike was a 350 Honda twin. Both stroms are a little tall and top heavy but I have no problems with it. Some new riders have issues dropping them, but a 250 is easy to drop also.
And finally, no matter if its a 34 Hp bike at 275 pounds or a fire breather at 150 HP, they all will kill you just as dead.
P.S. I am 6-2...my brother is 6-0. We both can ride it fine and flat foot at stop signs. They can be lowered also. I think it would be a dandy first bike.
