Check my sig. I've owned about 6 Suzuki's post 1982 M.Y. and they've all been . My 2002 GSXR 750 with flexible shifting forks sealed the deal. I think the Bandit and the SV are the only things in their current offerings that are worth a .

07' 600rr are the lightest in its class and one of the most powerful. 07' has to be one of the best yrs for honda imo. If that matters at all to you.

IMO if comparing (06) 600's, gixx 600 is a good deal cheaper than a cbr and you get more features: slipper clutch, nice stock exhaust tone that gets louder @ WOT thanks to the butterfly valve, cushy seat, rear cowl, more "trunk" space, stabilizer, hazard lights, gear indicator, the cool passing light and is a little more friendly towards us short folk. But hey, I love my CBR 600rr cruiser and its digital gas gauge

Gas gauge has to be the most genius thing ever put on a sport bike.

I'm another with a 636 that has never had so much as a hiccup from the transmission. Along with several other I know with the same bike. Also, the 07 ZX-6R has a better trans now.

To the OP. . . if I was to go out and buy a new 600 today, I would head straight to the Honda dealer. I love Kawasaki and all, but the new CBR kills every other 600 in everything.

I've got a busa and a GSX-R 750 (right now) and I don't think I pose.

I have ridden to work EVERY day since the first week of June. I've had to call a cab twice for rain - but I mean rain like when the effin tropical storm came through - even then I still ride in the rain.

I ride by myself and the only time I spend in parking lots is at gas stations.

My bike is typically filthy, cause I'd rather ride than clean.

I assume you were missing the word "not" between 'usually' and 'the,' right?

Suzi's have better acceleration and top end, and as far as "best looking," that's entirely subjective. I've always thought Yamaha's looked the best - nut the most recent Kawi's are really nice, followed closely by Honda nd last, Suzuki

I've only been to PP1 once, just to show my brother.

Thats why you need an 07 this is because this is the best tranny kawi has ever made. The 05-06 tranny is garbage so I know what your talking about. The 07 has a cassette tranny and it feels like butter.

Wow you must have down syndrome

Now back to topic, both the GSXR and the CBR are excellent choices, I would pick what fits your ergonomics best and within your price range.

But does the fact that the CBR has no slipper clutch affect anyone's decision betwenn CBR and Gixxer? I know that if you know how to effectively "blip" the throttle on downshifts, the slipper clutch doesn't really matter all that much, but is it a feature that people who have them really like? I've only ridden 86 Kawi Ninja 900 and 98 CBR 900 and neither of these models had slipper clutches. Plus, from what I hear, most people get new aftermarket slipper clutches anyways. Opinions?

In the past, Honda has normally sacrificed a slight bit of performance and weight savings to keep their bikes reliable and easy to use for the general public.
For alot of folks it's a fair trade off, but some want every bit of performance possible from their bikes.
I'd wager that 99% of the folks on here(including myself) can't use their bikes to 100% of it's ability anyways. Thats why I ride red.
Their both good bikes IMO. You just get a little more piece of mind with the honda.

It's not bad at all. I even removed the heat shielding on my old 1000rr and still was'nt bad.

If everything goes as planned through today and tomorrow, you'll probably see a suzuki symbol under my name. Rather than a honda symbol.
