Which is better ?600cc class.

Aftet these month , I have made some choice for next bike, a 600 cc sportbike, but there are couple of bikes hard to choose from, they all have their pros and cons , so can any one tell me which is 「relatively」better? P.S. (Never go for track riding.) 1. Kawasaki zx-6r. 2.yamaha r6. 3.Triumph Daytona 675 4.ducati 848 evo 5. Honda cbr600rr.

Daytona has one of the coolest Powerbands, especially for the street. Downside is that it is a torture rack. Gsxr is going to be the most comfortable and best all round supersport on the street. Just keep in mind that todays ss bikes are made for the track and just so happen to be able to be ridden on the street. they look cool but are not the best streetbikes. Naked bikes are where it's at for street. More purpose built for that.

They are all fine bikes...... Pick the one you think is coolest that you feel the
Most comfortable on. The Duc and the Triumph have the best "street"power bands.

Bikes have changed too much. I had always felt that Yamaha made the best 600 and 1000 and Suzuki made the best 750. Now they all just get better every year, so I don't know any more :LOL:

I love my GSXR750 ... it's perfect for me.

I did check out the new GSXR 1000's, and wasn't a fan of how low they sit. The Yamaha R1 felt considerably better.

It's more a matter of what fits you best and what your most comfortable with.

I'm a fan of Yamaha's, Honda's, and Ducati's...though I've never owned a Duc.

Had an R6 and a 600rr...liked them both. I would say that for all intents and purposes...they're all gonna be the same to you. You should sit on them, figure out which one feels comfortable, and pick that model.

Or...just buy the one that you can find the best deal on.

Just don't buy a Suzuki though!

I've worked on ALL of them.

They all have their own issues.

Suzuk valve clearance Keep an eye on this.

Honda cam chain tensioner.

Yam. the design engineers hate the mechanics.They just plain suck to work on and they all blow out second gear.Avoid these like the plague.

Kaw.Hmm now that i think about it I have no bones to pick with Kawasaki.

My first bike was a Kaw and the plugs kept getting fowled. Never a day's trouble with the Suzuki.

I imagine r6 on the street would suck big time. The bike will bog down if you don't keep it above 9K rpm and if you do, neighbors will hate you . The bike is meant to race on. So I'd say 09 or newer zx6r, very strong engine , less aggressive ergonomics - should be more fun on the street.

What I 'm concerned is easier controll , and safety , like bikes with a steering damper, although I don't know if it really helps handle the bike.
