Hahaha, you wont last 10 minutes on that bike.
What makes you think you have the skill to operate a motorcycle capable of 0-60 in 3 seconds.
Listen, your best bet is to start with something small like a 250 or a ninja 500 like anuj. They are great starter bikes which will teach you how to handle yourself out on the road. What you need is experience and plenty of it. Once you feel comfortable, then you should consider moving up in displacement.
But then again, you probably just want the bike because its fast and it looks good, making you look like a badass and scoring all the chicks. At least, that's what most new riders want when thinking about purchasing a bike, with a 1000cc machine at the top of the list.
You can make the smart choice and start small and work your way up. Or, you can go all out just to look cool (and probably die).
