Hey Bro,
Don't finance another bike yo, unless you get a really good deal. try and buy one from an owner will low miles if you can. I heard the 675's are really comfortable, but I like my r6, but ive liked all my bikes

easy choice..... if you are going to track it, then go with the R6, parts are cheaper and available everywhere, easy to fix! if you are just going to ride on the street, then go with the 675R.
