I disagree.

The fz6r has plenty of torque and power for the street. It has less vibration and good with gas. The riding position is also very comfortable.

would it be dumb to buy an fz6r. I want a bike that I can ride as well, and she hated the one time she rode my 600rr around the neighborhood.


This bike will basically be my bike everyday, with her riding around League City from time to time just to shake the cobwebs. I want to buy this, and then pickup another 600rr for me and let her keep the 6r

Thoughts?
Would be an awesome decision. That's exactly what I did after riding and own two Ninja 250, old and newer model.

The riding position is extremely comfortable. Good torque at low rpms but enough "juice" for the highways as well. The Ninja 250 was too lazy for highways.

All motorcycles are dangerous if the rider is not careful enough. The key is being responsible. But the fz6r does not have an explosive power; it should be safe but fun at the same time.

so I bought her a monster 796 as her first bike..
now.. price-wise is not that much of difference, but the twin engine, handling, and overall looks make a woman/bike combination perfect.. sexy as . She enjoys it and believes herself a better choice between bikes
FZ6, which I agree is ho-hum in the looks dept.
05 mcy fz6 blu 3 4759

FZ6-R...which I think is a little more aggressive looking.
