If you're looking in the fz8 power ballpark, he needs to seriously look at the Aprilia Shiver 750. It's like a baby Tuono. V-twin, sufficient power, ride by wire technology, three factory maps with the flick of a switch, and they are blowing out new, never registered models (2008-2011) for super cheap. Browsing cycletrader.com the other day, there were many dealers offering them for around $6500. I'd run out and get one myself but, no spare cash at the moment.
Got it whittled down to a sensible two bikes.
