    Best 600cc class sportbike? (Poll and discussion)

    Advertisement



    So I'm in search of a new 600cc Sportbike. I'm been making up my own mind and searching the web, but I always like to hear what everyone has to say.

    I've narrowed it down to a few, yet I'm leaning towards the Yahama R6.

    State your opinion.... explain...

    Yamaha YZF-R6
    Honda CBR600RR
    Kawasaki ZX-6R

    Suzuki GSX-R600
    or other

    multiple choices allowed (if you believe they're so equal).

    Hands down the R-6. The comfort of the bike is nice The throttle controls are forgiving, and the weight ratio just right where you don't feel like you're gonna dump your bike going into a turn. I've ridden the older CBR's and the weight ratio was what I didn't like. The Kawasaki I don't like the shape of the gas tank when your leaning into the bike.

    Now that you mention it I have to look at the Kawasaki again in person. THanks for your input.

    I've also heard great things about GSXR's as well but I have no personal experiences with them so I can't tell you what I think on a personal level. I love the way they look but that really doesn't say much when it comes down to the individuals comfort.

    Definitely the R6. Looks, comfort, and everything else you can think of. If you want a bike that will get up and go and fall right into turns get it.

    I have to say go with the gsxr 600. R6 is a great bike no doubt and in a strait line will out pull the gixxer. R6 is awesome in the twistys too. But the down side (although fun) the R6 tends to want to wheelie to easy. The gixxer is probley one of the most well rounded sportbikes ever built. For a crotch rocket its fairly confortible to ride. It is smooth through the throttle, this is espically nice on being able to roll on the throttle comming out of a corner. You can start to roll on it a little earlier than normal. The bike always feels planted unless you want it to come up on one and it will do it with ease. It is just a fun bike to ride. No matter if your on the street, track where ever. There is also tons of aftermarket stuff availble too. Now don't get me wrong if you go with any of the bikes you listed you will not be dissapointed they are all fun. But at least choose from the gixxer or R6. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
