Definitely R1......you're talking 50+hp more and not THAT much more weight...

Not even comparable.....


636s are great bikes though for a 600 class...

50? according to my google fu it would be about 35 hp diff.. still quite a bit. but the TQ is way higher as well. and IMO the TQ on the R1 would make me choose the R1...
