I know a couple of people with them. They're aren't bad bikes at all just pretty old tech. They have the first gen gsx-r engines in them, still air/oil cooled. They are much more comfortable than the fzr's and most sport bikes, they have more of a sport touring design, and they are pretty heavy bikes. If he allready knows how to ride he should be fine. If its what he's gonna learn on might wanna find something a little lighter, but then again I know a couple people who are currently learning on them without issue. IDK

Personally i'd go with a cbr f2+, yzf600 etc, before going that route. But then again it depends what kind of riding he does. If he wants a cheap sport touring bike a katana would be just about perfect. But if he wants a sportbike there are alot of better options out there.
