They dont make the 636 anymore is one difference.
And the HP is higher on the 6363636363636363
Torque peaks at a lower rpm for the 650r than the 63636363

Lots of differences if you do your homework.
The 650r is better for you to learn on IMHO.

650 is a two cylinder with about 60 hp, 636 is a four cylinder with 100+

completely different bikes, nothing like each other besides cc displacement being close :(

So in your opinions which would be better for a NEW STREET RIDER, the 650R probably right?

if your a noob def. go with the 650R. my buddy has one and its comfortable as and real easy to ride. you won't set any speed records but its not a bad begineer bike. if your not dead set go with an SV. they've been around longer and they've had a chance to work all the bugs out.

that and just the over all ergonomics or the bike. seat position, controls, ect.. the suspension gives it a pretty smooth ride as well.

ok Girls Opinion!!! I like the 650R the colors R good this yr. I think the Black w/ Maroon and the Silver & Maroon were kinda girlie. I wanted the Black & Maroon! :icon_bigg I would say that the 650R's are definately smaller bodied than the 636( Which I have an 03) and maby easier 2 ride. My opinion on the handle bars its a sports bike those are not sports bike handles, however they say that thay are 4 a more comfortable ride. So my overall opinion if your going 4 a more comfortable ride and something 2 learn 2 ride on go w/ the 650R espically with the colors this yr. If you want the true sport bike look and feel with a lil more go with the 636 & the colors on them r good 2!!!

636's only exist in garages now, you won't find any 07's in the dealer showrooms, Kamasaki went back to the 600. I would def. NOT get a 636 for a starter bike. The 650R will be more than adequate for a beginner.

I would go with the SV.
But do you have to get a new bike to learn on?
I got a 1996 FZR 600 for my first streetbike and couldnt have been happier. Dont rule out a mid to late 90s 600, cause you might crash or drop it in a parking lot and you dont wanna do that with a purdy new bike.

You could also get an older 600 bandit.
Pick up a cycle trader and see whats out there, then ask around on the board and Im sure you'll get all the advice you could want/need.

Please do not start your very first time on the 636.. thats a of a bike, ride the 650r, its a great bike and you will love it, and it is PLENTY fast (like 0-60 in 3-5 seconds, and can do upwards of 130mph)

What you need to do is go to a dealership, and sit on both bikes, that right there will show you the difference, the 636 your going to be hunched over like any supersport, and the 650 you will be in a comfortable upright position.

Either way, if your not going for the 650 (which like i said is a great bike) dont get the 636 either.. you might want to try the SV650, ex500 or gs500
