Hi, everyone. My name is Sasha, I'm 17 years old. I'm buying my first bike this year and there are three bikes that I really like, 1985 ninja 600r, 1983 unitrack GPZ 550 and a 1983 GPZ 750, would these bikes be too powerful for a beginner? I don't have a lot of riding experience I have ridden my friends 200cc dual sport a couple of times.

The 550 would be the best of the three. All the 600 fours are not very good for street riding, and not good for a beginner, or anyone else.
Smaller is better for learning to ride. There are too many other distractions to consider. If you can I suggest practicing on a dirt bike in the dirt. Much easier to fall off there, than on a public highway.

IMO all these bikes are a little to powerful for a first bike. I'm not saying it can't be done with the right restraint but I wouldn't. They are alot more powerful than your friends 200 dual sport.
