if its in your budget, get the S1000rr. 2015 is a revised platform so you should be able to get a great deal on a 2014

Ofcourse you should buy it! If you can get out from under the 6R without taking a beating on it and get a decent deal on the S1000rr, There is NO reason not too assuming you can afford it.

Never deny yourself something you REALLY want if you can afford it..life is short, live it to the fullest.

The S1000rr is a of a lot of fun.

I personally like the alien/lazy eye front end on the S1000rr, one of the main reasons I bought it...I love it's hard edged/odd ball looks.. I mean it's not Ducati sexy or anything but... Definitely more appeal then most of the bikes.

You might want to consider the higher maintence and parts pricing on the BMW. The first service at 600 miles is mandatory so it can be unrestricted after the break in period. It's not an inexpensive service, and 600 miles comes real quick. The BMW is a bad bike. Keep the kaw., it makes an awesome track and is easier on tires than a liter bike. Good luck, they a both great bikes either way.

Your profile states 1 year experience and you mention the 6xr still scares you.
You might want to think about that.

You're not stupid for wanting an S1000...
you're stupid for asking US if you're stupid.

If you're going to get one, at least wait and get a 2015 or get a "good" deal on a new 2014. That being said, is the S1000RR worth 2.5 times the price of the 636? For me, no. Then again it depends on your experience, and what you plan on using the bike for. At any rate, while it may be hard, take a S1000RR for an extended demo ride away from the city traffic. It may not be the bike you thought it was going to be.

Man I'm in the same situation as you are. I bought a used 07 cbr600rr for 4500 bucks and been having a blast. Now I got the itch just like you to get an s1000rr but I figure the reality for me is:
1) I still don't have enough skills to realistically use a liter bike. I figure a couple more years on the 600 and maybe rethink
2) Money is a problem. My buddy has a bmw gs800 and he ran into a couple of repair issues and not only did it cost him money, but parts took forever to order. And on top of that, I'm moving to Cali in less than a year. I figure save money for the move, work and enjoy the canyons on the 600.

I'm still enjoying not having a car note, last thing I wanted to do is dwelve back into another loan for a vehicle. But hey, if you're in a situation where you can afford not only the bike but also the insurance and maintenance, go for it. Once I'm done with school/training, for sure the s1000rr is gonna be in the garage, either that or an h2 if that thing is worth all the hype.

From the OPs first post with pics, maybe he is looking at a used S1000rr, if so, he is dodging the depreciation hit of a new bike... Probably getting an S1000rr for 1/3rd of the cost of a new one. I would stick with a 2012 and later S1000rr as there was some serious updates on the 12s and later.. Some early production 12s had a rod bolt recall and I would dodge those vin models like the plague. Later '12-13s would be best.

Ofcourse a deal on a left over new '14 would be great but don't count on it.

The '15s have some nice improvements, but they are like $2k more and do not look as good as the original s1000rrs. They do have 6 more hp and cruise control, both of which I wish mine had.

And wasn't the 600cc version still available all along for racing as the ZX-6RR?

They were 599's in 07/08, stayed that way throughout the 09-12 gen

But yes, they are all zx6rs... I automatically assume someone has no idea what they are talking about when they refer to them as "636's" it's increased even more if they have either a 07-12 or a zx6rr from 03-06.

Don't listen to this guy because he already drank the Kool-Aid and liked it!!

Just kidding - fully agree with the "life is short, live it to the fullest" comment.

Bring that S1000 up her Alan and I will show you some real twisties to ride!
