If your so worried about having to work to hard with a 1000 just get a 2008/2009 CBR1000. It does the turning for you and it definitly rides like a 600
at least in handling, but its got that umph like a 1000 and will be a more fun bike to ride at the track than a 600.

Exactly what was on my mind, minus the flux capacitor.

He can always sell the 6 and upgrade later if he is not satisfied.

Werd. If you have the self control to respect the power then get the 10. I hate riding 600's on the street and most that have owned both will tell you the same. Misery loves company, keep that in mind, that is why that people with sixes on street duty tell you to get one. Or they have never owned a liter bike. Nothing compares to it. I wouldn't buy a 600 to ride on the streets for nothing. I'd save for a big bike.

huh? Have you rode an 08+ liter bike? If you haven't, you should try one. They flick as good as any 600 I have owned. And as good as my 07 750 that has $2500 worth of suspension work. And you can rail on them.

I've owned both, and my vote is the 10R.

I have an 08 ZX10. I ride back roads mostly. The bike has never gotten me in trouble that a 600 wouldn't. I wanted a liter bike and didn't ask what everyone else thought because they don't know my riding priorities. A liter bike's touchy throttle can lead to a high side exiting a corner easier than a 600. Both will bite you if you enter a corner to fast. Both get to 150 mph quick. It just takes a 600 more gear shifts to get there. Just my 2 cents.

But if your looking for a new bike, i still say 08-09 CBR1000RR.

I was looking for a clean 05 ZX10R but couldnt find any with low miles that i liked and Im always looking for a deal. I dont buy unless i know i can break even or make money. Picked up my 09 for CHEAP with low miles and tasteful mods! And... the cbr looks way better than the new zx10r IMO.

Ill bet a paycheck that a any stock 600 out there cant even get to 100 mph as fast as a stock litter bike. much less 150mph.

Also about cornering, "thanks mr obvious"

Now come watch me corner my 14, Its called Knowing how to drift, but let me guess." don't try this at home kids"

Stop whining about my opinion. Just answer the threads question and keep moving. Acceleration is relative and they both get going fast relatively fast. People crash mostly entering corners. From that perspective it doesn't matter what you ride. People say liters are too much. I stated the obvious because too many people say crashes happen to liter bike riders. I would however like to see you drift a ZX14 "Mr. Fast and Furious" lol

Wow this thread has sparked some thoughts - Thanks for all the info guys - I think you just made it harder to choose.

Any more pros/cons to each bike?

My question is, why are you so focused on crashing? I think your being negative. perhaps you should go to the track and focus on making your cornering skills better instead of thinking about not crashing in the turn.

Yes crashing is inevitable to a certain extent but what does crashing have to do with choosing a bike.

I am officially calling you "NEGATIVE NANCY"

I was told years ago before I became a rider, by an aged veteren of 20 years of riding, Get a big bike as your first bike because you will learn to repect it fast. If you can do a lot with a big bike, you can do even more with a smaller one. 600,1000,1300cc ect... If you can ride, you can ride.(wow thats a double positive) take that nancy.

Its like saying well people who win 25 million dollar lotto are less likley to go broke than those who win 100 million. Wait im off topic.

GET A ZX10 AND your cup will always be half full except for nancy here.

I'm not being negative. I just made one point about getting a liter bike that is quite common. Your either too sensitive or a thread flamer. Either way relax. I have a ZX10 and love it. There are too few Kawi guys to get all bent out of shape. Where's the Ninja love?
