Purchased a 2015 FZ6R. Can't stand it. It's comfy, easy to ride, short seat hight, good wind protection. You have to tack the out of it if you want ti to move out and it's far from fast even so. The suspension is comfy but bouncy and it feels untrustworthy. Prominent nose dive when breaking, rear is too soft and while you can adjust it it just makes it less bouncy but feels out of whack with the from being so soft. Tires are but they might last a while. Buzzy on the freeway. in short, it inspires no confidence and the acceleration is lack luster. I would say this is a bike a new rider would out grow within 6 months. You can do a lot better for a little more money.

I had an FZ6R. Bought it new. Great fun, reliable bike. Preowned bike market is weird because you can always find a cheaper bike that's better yadadada...... It's unfair to compare, it all depends on condition, mileage, history etc.
after owning one for a couple of years here is what I liked:
1. great price, bought mine new for $6700 otd in 2011.
2. more than enough power for a beginner bike
3. comfortable posistion
4. adjustable seat height
5. looks great
6. awesome fuel economy( I avg 47mpg, some tanks I got above 50mpg)

what I didn't like
1. brakes weren't great
2. Steel frame made it a touch heavy
3. seat was uncomfortable after a while
4. While had no problems with the suspension, I do wish it was more adjustable.
5. one exhaust meant loud exhasut was a custom job or expensive full system

Some of these faults are going to be universal to any other bike made around the same time and around the same price. All in all the FZ6R is a great bike. A great value when it was new.
