Stick with a 600.....and that is pushing it.

Ride it for a while, and when you dump it ( and you will eventually do it), turn it into a track and then go buy a litre stoopit machine.

OR

Just buy a track bike and hone yer skills, get a nicer bike later.



Going to an R1 right out the gate is....well......not the brightest thing a man can do.

^^^yup. A new bike might not be the best idea. The odds of you making a mistake and dropping it are not in your favor. Last thing you wanna do is make a mistake with a brand new shiny bike that you spent your hard earned money on. Even experienced riders are not immune to this sort of thing. Everybody is different of course. If your head is on right you could go for a new 1000 and take it mighty slow at first. Many have done it before. As for the bike, I recommend you at least sit on them all. Each bike discussed is a capable machine. Find one that's most comfortable and in the color you like. These bikes are dangerous - why stack the deck against yourself?

I dont think the extra 20hp of the ZX10 is the issue....its the first 150+hp on all of them that is going to be the problem here!

I think, personally, that all the safety gizmos (traction control, ABS, ect.) on new bikes can give a false sense of security. New(ish) riders sometimes believe that with these devices will make a high horsepower bike safer for them and that it will save them from their own inexperience. Not that th OP falls into this category but just a general observation.

Cant argue your logic...that and the 150+ in an inexperienced hand = disaster

These guys are all right- stick with a 600. You can get a good track ready 600 for 3500. Learn on it. Then after you get addicted to the track make your decision for a street bike.

I have a 600 track and speed triple street bike- the best combo I've tried so far!
