well if i go with the kawi, i was looking at the silver one with red wheels.
on the other hand that candy apple R6 is soooo pleasing to the eye.
the only thing is that i know that red attracts the po po oh so much. decisions decisions. as Al Bundy once said:" HOOTERS....CHOCOLATE CAKE...HOOTERS.....CHOCOLATE CAKE......CHOCO HOOOTERS.

I have to admit...the R6 looks pretty sick but...dun, dun, dun...I'm afraid the ZX-6R is going to outperform.

Here are the facts as indicated in Motor Cyclist Magazine:

Measured hp (@rpm) / Measured torque (lb.-ft. @rpm)
R6 - 113.0 @ 14,500 / 43.8 @ 11,500

ZX-6R - 111.4 @ 13,000 / 48.2 @ 11,000


And last but not least:

1/4 mile comparison (sec. @mph)

R6 - 11.02 @ 127.5

ZX-6R - 10.84 @ 129.9

Granted...not too much difference but yammi had its day and needs to step up again. For that fact...I would actually suggest HONDA or Kawi right now until Yammi gets back in the game. Good look but needs improvement. Of course...try em on for size though...you can't really go wrong with any of them! Thats my $.02. Ride safe!

You're asking for opinions on a what bike bike to get? Might as well start an oil thread. RRW Magazine just did a liter bike shootout and it was one of the most comprehensive comparisons that I have seen in a magazine. Of course its reviews are more oriented toward track and not street riders.

I would wait till they do a 600cc comparison if want to based your decision on numbers and hard data.

But if you want an opinion, I'll say get the Ninja. Why? No other reason than that I own one and like it.

If you get a Kawasaki, DO NOT, under ANY circumstances, take it to Clear Lake Kawasaki. My bike spent half its warranty period in there because they just didnt feel like ordering parts for it.:BangHead:

Prices are high as too.

I LOVE my 06 as well. Some of the dealers in the area seem to be lacking though. Where did you buy yours from?
