How would you rate 2009 ZX6R

Im really interested in this bike and I want to get a couple of informed opinions.

How would you compare it to the 08/09 CBR1000 at the track if you have every ridden one. I know the motor is a big difference but let me know what you think.

Im thinking more for track purpose than anything else

i dont own one bt last mo nth when i was bike shopping, the price they were willing to sell the kawis to me was irresistable.

compared to the MSRP i seen on the hondas and yami 600cc bikes, i would go with the zx6r.

and that blue color i really liked also.

then again, thats not what u asked.

the new honda 1000RR is the best bike ever made. It's lighter faster and handles better then almost every 600 let alone thousand in existence. It's an overall package that makes me not even want to throw my leg over any other bike when I think about it.

interesting review on the kawasaki ZX6R hero.


on another note, a 1Kcc bike thats lighter than all the pother 600cc bikes has to be .

so is it lighter than the CBR600 also?

If you wanted to go racing, you could WIN races on a new ZX6 without doing anything more than tires and suspension setup. They are an awesome bike.......the '09 ZX10 is better IMHO.......but the ZX6 is great.

the new zx-6's are awesome. if i was to get another bike, out of the top 4 manufacturers, the new ninja would be it.

I rode an 09 zx6 with AK's, Penske and a slip on at MSRH a couple of weeks ago. Within 3 laps I was within a few seonds of my times on my 750, having never rode the thing before. And it was GP shift which was tough for me.

They are FAST for real.

I've ridden the 09 r6 and the 09 zx6r and the kawi takes it hands down, i haven't ridden the cbr. i own the 09zx6r. Suspension, engine, brakes are awesome, you only need a shock and you are set for some racing. oh and the exhaust.

Only bad I have heard about the 08/09 cbr1000 is that the clutches don't hold up. Can anyone confirm this?
