You are looking at the wrong number there.

FZ6 - 97hp 46lb/ft
FZ1 - 142hp 78lb/ft

Notice how there is over 50% increase in torque.
And we all know that horsepower is just a number. (torque X rpm / 5252)

Incorrect sir...

The YZF600R has a claimed 90 hp
and the YZF1000R has 145 hp..


145-90= 55 HP difference.

what other bikes have you ridden? the reason i ask is if youre so in love with the handling of that old 600r then my guess is that you havent ridden anything even remotely modern. not trying to flame, but i cant think of any bike from the past 5 years, even liter bikes, that couldnt out ride that 02 you got. if youre looking for more power, your best bet really is to just buy a newer liter bike. unless of course, youre just looking for a project to do just so you can say "i did it".

but my point is he says he loves the way it handles even after all the other bikes he's ridden, so i was wondering what other bikes those would have been if the 600r was so much better. just saying any newer bike will handle even better, whether the 600r has adjustable suspension or not.
