for me it would be between the kawi or the honda... a recent review of the two I saw kinda summed it up... The tester called the Honda your girlfriend.. and the Kawi a one night stand.. and went on to say that the honda made you look like a better rider than you really are.. and that the kawi was the one that directly off the showroom floor was more track ready. both are great bikes.. and can be modded beyond belief to suit your needs... so i guess for me it would just come down to which one felt better when sitting on them. For me, sitting on the Honda at dealerships.. it feels small and cramped. then again, so did my zx10 until i got used to it...

I'd like to also see how much each company spends on it's racing programs in comparison as well.

Typically (not always mind you) Money spent = races won

i have yet to ride the zx6. But, i would go for the honda because of reliability. I always seem to hear about valves needing to be adjusted on anything kawasaki.

I havent found any weaknesses. Aside from the stock Ohlins damper not working. Its not a huge deal as you can send it to Ohlins and they will make it work for $100. The bike is strong in all areas. Ive been racing them since '01 and Ive never had any trouble with them.

I personally like it best in the looks department, but unfortunatly that doesn't win races. I personally found the R6 small. I'm a big guy at 6'-4" - #210 FWIW. The R6 is certainly a machine to consider, the only complaint I have heard about the R6 is that the handling can be problematic. It turns so quick, you have to really nail the turn-in points and braking markers. Essentially it does not suffer fools at the controls.

Of course these are my opinions....
Great information... Thanks John! I need to give you a call and catch up, crazy going on these days with work...

Hope to see ya soon, and thanks for the info this is exactly the kind of info I was looking for. I sat on the honda and it feels great to me, I just would love to NOT have to buy the slipper... which nothing says you need one and I didn't have one on the triumph for a year but mannnn i am addicted to that baby now.

Maybe I can finagle something with the dealer on a slipper / discount on one....
