I went through this exact same decision process a couple months ago purchasing the Scrambler as my first bike. With the Sixty2 and Icon being priced only $1,000 apart, I had a hard time justifying the Sixty2 initially. However once I started pricing insurance as a new rider, the Sixty2 made the most sense for me.
So in July, I picked up my Atomic Tangerine Sixty2 and couldn't be happier. It is very balanced... not so much power that it scares me away, but also not underpowered by any means. It is a fantastic commuting machine, and still fully capable of being out on the freeway when necessary. I'm really comfortable on it and it is confidence inspiring. I'm loving it, and get compliments everywhere I go with it. Even my uncle who has ridden most of his life and currently has a 1900cc cruiser got off of my Sixty2 with a huge grin on his face.
Eventually the Sixty2 will be passed down to my girlfriend to learn to ride on, and I will upgrade to an Icon. In the meantime, I am enjoying my Sixty2 and have no regrets whatsoever.
