Question Looking for advice on a new bike

Ok, so I currently have a yamaha FZ6, it has good low end torque with the right mods, and it was a great bike to start stunting on. Well now I need a ton more speed and I also want a full on supersport. I want to stay in the 600 class, the most I will go is probably a 750 (no need to burn the slightly extra gas for power I probably wont use). Right now im torn between a Gixxer 600 and a R6, however I was told that the R6 is a midrange supersport and doesn't carry the same amount of power as a ZX6R or a Gixxer 6. Can anyone shed some light on this? Feel free to suggest any bike at all, information on why if you can. Thanks alot guys.

look no further friend

This beast comes in 600 750 and 1100, more than enough power to do those wheelies.

You really need to give a little more info.
What kinda of riding do you want to do?
How much money you wanna spend?
Have you considered insurance costs?

Depending on what year R6 the midrange is pretty weak, actually. The R6 is known as a high revving bike. Gotta keep the RPM's up to get the Yamipowa. (which pwns gixxapowa, btw)

Well the thing is, since the FZ6 has alot of potential low end torque and a super solid sub frame, I am going to put on a triple tree and fork bars and mount em straight, eliminate the whole front including headlights. basically turn it into a streetfighter. It wont be street legal, but I just want it for stunting in parking lots etc... However for a street bike i can take out and race around the twisty back roads, I definitely want a bike to do around 160 or 170 true mph, not displayed. And I am willing to spend 6 to MAYBE 7 large. and can anyone give me a good explanation in the match up between a R6 and a Gixxer 600?

GSXR notoriously get destroyed a lot easier then any other bike, the R6 if using a FI cage will almost definitely blow out the side of the motor. If you are really serious about stunting then you are going to change the sprocket atleast a few teeth making your 160 must mph completely un obtainable.

So the R6 is going to be easier to setup by far, youll just have to learn how to ride them. I would recommend a a F4i or 636 really, and if you are really serious hit up sunnydee from stuntgarbage he has (last i knew) a setup f4i that has magic behind it for stunting. F4i are bullet proof.

SunnyDee's bike is sick and a complete package lot killer. And yes Tinodc a 600 can do 170, the new Ninjas are fully capable of it, that is pretty much its top though.
f4i's FTW!

A 6 will not go 170. If it's going to be a parking lot bike, your looking at 90mph max, Due to gear ratio.


Just get a 600, learn to wheelie it then start slowing it down.






Oh and I'm not a "stunter" so just void this post

On a stock sprocket or maybe a few teeth down in the rear and you might squeak 170 out of a 6. I got my 01 ZX6R to 165, and it was all stock except a muzzy. On a stunt sprocket though no, but i dont know either cause i am definetly not a stunter.

http://www.zx6rspeed.com/ninja-zx6r-or-zx636-top-speed/
The top speed of a ZX6R like all things depends on the weight and aerodynamics of the motorcycle rider. A typical 2006-2007 Ninja ZX6R or ZX636 max speed will be around 160-180 miles per hour. I myself have a 2006 Ninja 636 which has reached a stock speed of 197 MPH. However, this will not be standard since I’m a lightweight and had little gas. Weight and rind resistance is an extremely huge factor at high speeds.

Top Speed: +/-170mph mph

Not that i really care, or would ever go that fast on an open road again, just saying that they are capable.

170 on speedo with stock sprocket, not that anyone needs to go that fast, but it is possible on a 600
