HMMM interesting. I went from a FI bike, to a carbed SS, to a FI SS, and it IS night and day difference. The throttle response alone was worth moving up.

The parts being cheaper are debatable. I could not find front rotors for my old bike that were under 576 brand new. Used were no where to be found though. The turnaround of bike models is that of computers. Many parts get discontinued quickly or become scarce. You have to look a couple of years in future if he plans on keeping it.

PS- The r6 is known to only have power on the upper end. hardly anything under 6-8k RPM's. That's why so many r6's go with the -1/+2 sprocket setup to compensate for acceleration down low.

My perspective is a little different than most. It tends to be a little more rounded. I probably currently own more bikes than you've had your whole riding life. Funny how you mention computers....bikes don't quite work like that. One of the CMRA 600 class championships was won on a Honda F2 about 2 years ago.

The "throttle response" that you're talking about is exactly why fuel injection sucks so badly. Its abrupt it upsets the chassis & mid turn riding fast that puts you on your . For a first time rider...old....smooth... & tough are the things to look for in a bike. New gen GSXR's are tin foil & ungodly complicated plastics held together like a snap fit model. Most beginning riders drop their first bike numerous times. Simply put that R6 would survive it & the gsxr probably wouldn't.

This guy made the mistake of asking what you would buy instead of asking what HE should buy.

You first said there is not a night and day difference between new and old technology, but now we're talking about throttle response there IS a big difference??? Enlighten me, oh' owner of many bikes currently....

I didn't comment on the longevity of a motorcycle, I stated the model turnaround is significant. Meaning it is more difficult to find replacement parts for older bikes when models change. Scarce parts= higher $$$.

I don't know anything about newer model suzuki's, which is why I didn't comment, but your info on the r6 wasn't completely accurate.

Sounds like I wouldn't want either of them!

GSXR without a doubt.

And nobody has touched on the ever popular act of previous owner non-registration (i.e. the R6). Try putting those worms back in the can....

depends if the info was filled out and dated and whether or not it is signed in the proper place. It's not that complicated to transfer over a title.

It sounds like the previous owner failed to transfer, and thus did not pay the Sales Tax. Either an Affidavit of Fact from prior owner (good luck on getting someone you do not know and who did not make a sale to you to falsify info), or title has to be transferred to current owner (including taxes paid) and then transferred to new owner. This adds additional time and cost.

People really need to transfer titles (and pay the taxes) when they purchase the bike. It is all part of the ownership experience...
