No counterbalancer as far as I know. The engine is ok on the highway at the speed limit. If you want a very smooth single 250 than check out the super Sherpa.

Another vote for the ZX-9

I think it also depends on how big you are. If you are on the shorter side, you want a bike that is comfy but smaller (e.g. CBR600F4i, GSX-R750, R6S). As a few people mentioned, ZX-9 from '98-00. I...

CWR-1 Transitions shield for Shoei RF-1200

BMW makes gloves for big hands as well. For a waterproof and comfortable glove that won't break the bank, try their All-around. It comes in sizes 12-12.5 and 11-11.5
