A salesperson at the Yamaha Dealership on 1960 and honestly, I think he was trying to safe me from making a big mistake being a noob and buying a SS bike.

I believe if you get an R6 or RR up to 8K RPM at a decent speed, you'll feel a whole new animal.

I had the Ninja250 which was a high-revving little monster and from what I am told, all Ninjas and most Kawis are like that. So, if you go to an RR or R6, yeah, you'll feel a difference. Now, take it to the track, and I'd think you may be surprised at what those bikes really have in them.

Did anyone else catch this?!? I'll be damned if I ever get called that personally.... Sorry had to post that. Ha ha ha!

I prefer the Kawi for the power but the Honda is indeed a smooth operator in turns... Heard nice things about the Triumph 675 but have yet to ride one.
I did ride my friends GXSR 750 and was impressed to say the least..

Next time I'll put it in first instead of second for ya. Since it's tuned a bit better I'll throw the jumper mod back in. I took it out for the warranty work, and got too lazy to put it back in. . . even though it only takes 5 minutes. Your RR kills my bike in the looks dept.(especially with all the scratches) but it'll kill ya on straightline speed.

I can't speak for Suzuki, as the only 600 I've ridden from them was the 06, and kept it fairly sane, but it didn't have ANYTHING on the low end compared to my bike. It was a . As for the 636, it still makes 108-110rwph(jumper mod) but it has that much more power in the bottom end where you don't feel the rush come on like the R6 and RR. I believe it's at around 9k RPMs, the 636 has 14hp more than the RR.

Even though I love my Kawi, and was hoping for the best with the new 07. . . . . 07 600RR > ZX-6R.

It's whenever. All the jumper takes is pulling the seat off, uncapping a connector, and jumping the 1 and 4 connectors.

If I win, I get more time on the Rocketa. I love that little thing.

Careful kiddo, I'll be seeing you tomorrow night when you're drunk.

At least I hope I'm there, I live like 3 minutes away from BCW.

Well after owning my 06 636 and putting about 15k miles on it I can say it has more torque than any other middleweight on the market. My new 07 ZX6R definately lacks the bottom end grunt but the top end on the new bike is incredible, especially with the jumper mod (8 RWHP). As for the Honda, I have ridden my buddies 05 and it feels very sluggish below 9k rpms, however it picks up quite nice once moving. The 07 CBR has been getting nothing but excellent reviews, the only complaint being that it lacks a slipper clutch.
