Great track/race bike HURRY!!!

Jim Falconi has put her on ebay, only a little time left. Good starter bike, rock solid, and very well maintained. These bikes crash well. Easy on the wallet all the way around.

Just a question..........does anyone have a problem switching between a litre bike and a 600? If all your used to riding is a litre bike, going to the smaller bike must take a little getting used too? Just wondering.......

i would think you would ride the smaller bike harder because of the weight diffrence. the power isnt there but the speed will be there entering a turn that you may not have on a liter bike. all depending on the rider because there are alot of people that can take turns on a liter like a smaller bike rider can.

Biggest difference is the avaialbable power and how you choose to use it. Getting the liter bike straight sooner is ideal for getting into available power and that available power can be used for getting it straight quicker as well. Blah blah blah....

I was curious........I've only ridden 1 600 (a 636 actually) and it was just around the block and it didn't feel like it had much power. Not that that is such a bad thing...........but I would think you would have to ride them differently to get the most out of them. MAybe you just have to ride better?
Might be fun to have a dedicated track bike.........

if you think a 636 lacks power, a 600 will be even slower. just have to keep the RPM's higher and use precise up/down shifting.

With the 600 you have to keep the RPM's up higher, carry more speed in the corners, and get on the gas earlier.

140mph down the straights and 30mph in the corners isn't happening.
