gsxr's are more comfortable than r6's. Beware r6"s" is not same as r6 at all. r6 is a bit more track positioned while aboard. Gsxr everywhere everyday too common imo. Also I think gsxr is a bit faster. My 2cents. I been riding since 03 on my fourth bike. ridden but not owned gsxr, owned r6 for years

Well I have to admit when I clicked on the link and saw your name I was expecting some terrible English to go along with some stupid choices in this thread. Pleasantly surprised. That being said, I am honestly surprised that more people haven't said that a newer 600 is a terrible first bike.

I know for a fact if I would have started with a 1-2 year old 600cc bike as my first I'd be dead right now.. There's just no way I could have known what to do with all that power "and all that braking". Most people don't realize that with a faster bike it's the acceleration that gets you killed not the top speed. You get in trouble that you didn't see because you don't have the experience way too quickly and then you dont have that same experience to get you out of it. Most new crashes are because you came in too hot... and then grabbed way too much brake... Then down you go.

It's not a deal breaker to start with a 600 as your first bike. Many have done it but it makes the chances of you crashing in the fist year much higher then if you had a 250, 500, or just a different type of bigger engine with less power.

Save some money, save your skin, and buy a older 600 if you are dead set on one but personally I'd start out with maybe a 500 or a 2000 or so 600.
