That's what it is.

650rs are nice bikes. They are a little down on power, but a good rider could easily hang with 600s.

the 650r is a fun bike to ride. it's got plenty of power and the bike feels like it wants to turn for you it doesn't have a heavy feel at all. I really liked riding my gf's

i like the 09 ER-6N, about time they brought it stateside. heck i like it better than the new 09 650r. the ER-6N is a naked version of the 650r. and as far as the Z1000's go, they are sweet looking bikes, (i like the look of the stock exhaust) but they are somewhat heavy. both 650's are good fun bikes

Either one is great. Subjectively speaking (as I have not owned any of those and have rode a 650R for only a matter of minutes) I prefer the looks of the Z1K. The 650R is a very very capable machine and comes highly recommneded. But given the chance I would (personally speaking) probably go with the Z1K.

handling is better on the 650r, er-6n, or versys, but the z1k will destroy any of them power wise. the z1k is the purest hooligan bike on the market. stupid fast.

I said the same thing until I actually rode a liter bike. I still mis my lil 636 but man this thing screams.

It's really personal preference though. If I could have one of each that would be best!!!

I have nothing to complain about the effectiveness of the Kawasaki Ninja 650R. It's a great bike to ride.

That ER-6N looks like the Buell 1125 (including exhaust under the motor). Twin? Nah. It's a cute little bike, but I'd want more power. I'd take the Z1000.

Thanks Switch. It's the HJC CL-15 Draco model. The wifey recently bought me the dark smoke lens for it and I'm pretty happy with it.
