Gsxr = best handling + comfort also.
Cbr = best reliability
R6 = combo of both above but at half percent
Kawi = competitive company. Always updating. they squeeze hp and electronics into models frequently.

I've ridden all these 600cc bikes for thousands of miles each, and this is all IMO. Idk about European bikes.

The winner is Gsxr.

I was saying out of all the bikes I have owned. I'd pick the Ktm over and over. Hands down.

On a side note, I'd still love a rsv4

My RC8 brings a smile to my face every single time I saddle up. It may not have the top speed of other liter bikes that I have owned, but i assure you it blows them away in the corners and handles much better than them too.

Gsxr 1000 is one of the best handling 1000's. R6 is the best handling in the 600 class, gsxr 600 comes 2nd.

BMW had the worst rating of the brands represented, with one in three bikes having problems.

I mentioned the Gsxr line to him in relation to his rc8 which is a liter bike.
Gsxr = best production handling bike for many years. keep Kawasaki In mind tho. That company is the one-up company.

And you mention r6? whatt?? what year, the 2014 or something?sorry among all I rode, the 2008 r6 handled the worst.
