Stickin with the 6

Rode the zx10 today at the cycleworld show. This was the first liter bike I have ridden and they did let us open them up a little and there was a couple cool sweepers. But I am not convinced at all that the liter bike is anything better than my 600. For the twisties which is all I am really into anyway my 6 is way more fun than that bike would be.
Just my opinion.

I would agree but it is nice to play with all that power when you get to ride one everyday and get more used to it. I still think I had more fun with my R6 also, I just rode the wheels off of it.

I am actually thinking of moving down to a 600 for continuing track education.

That 600 trackbike on your showroom floor looked pretty interesting, Patrick.

My 1k is SOOOOOO good, it handles as well as a 600, but has SOOOOOO much power everywhere!!! Why would I want less? A very well ridden 600 can hang in the twisties, but you have to work so much harder to do it. If you can ride something that handles as good, or better, and has twice the power, it makes no sense to kill yourself trying to hang. I've ridden them all, but for an experienced rider, why not choose the 1000?

If I could afford it, I would have both 600 and 1000 cc's. You just cant throw a liter bike around like a 600 but the liter bike has the low end torque the 600 just doesnt have. Its a toss up.

I'd have to disagree. You can throw a 1K around just as easy as a 600-they are pretty much the same bike-built on the same platform. The KEY is "Throttle Control" . The 600 is alot more forgiving than the 1K on throttle due to the torque. If you can somewhat manage to learn "Throttle Control", the 1K is way more fun-which is why I have a 600 for a "trackbike", instead of my 1K. I haven't "mastered" throttle control yet .
