I agree 100% Don't be dumb ...buy a bike that will out last & out perform.

rode both. Own an 07cbr600rr and my best friend has an 08 r6. as stated before rode an 08 r6 not too long ago. Dont know about the track. but it is a better bike than the cbr on the street. YCC-I actually helps the low end pretty nicely and not the big gimmic i thought it would be. bike is more stable at speeds over 100 mph also. does not have an undertail exhaust which is also a plus (hate the heat) . Better brakes than the cbr also. Only thing i hated was the clutch.

just my humble opinion ( I am sure you have forgotten more than i know about bikes) but comparing wss and ama fx bikes (saw Rhiannon Lucente's bike a while back. not even close to any stock r6 i have ever seen)
to stock street bikes is like apples to oranges dont you think? That would be similar to me mentioning my 03 r6 with headwork, higher compression, full exhaust. custom pc, suspension, brakes and Marchesini mag wheels and a bunch of other stuff in the same sentence as a stock r6s.

Both the r6 and the cbr are nice but I would have waited and purchased the new r6 if i would have known it would be what it is over the cbr.

The 2008 R6 is the DADDY imo, they just got to learn to put enough fuel in it (Qatar) and not lose the front down Luci Heights (Australia) at WSS level and the big H would have even more to spit it's dummy about

i'd like to see this "exponential curve"... last i checked my speedo error, it was off by 3 at 50, 4 at 60, 5 at 70 and so on.... that is a proportional relationship.

exponential would be 3 at 50, 5 at 60, 8 at 70, 12 at 80....meaning the error difference changes as you go up a constant in speed.

notice the proportional relationship, the error always changes by 1 mph for every 10mph

Yeah the error rate is not linear....Its not exactly like "8% fast", it might be 8% at 60mph, but then at 70mph it might be 8.2%, the faster you go, the more it gets off..... Luckily, Speedo-healers can correct for this non-linear rate.... don't know how but the they do. Here is my speedo calibrated with a Speedo-healer....its pretty close... Had I stopped and held the throttle at the speed on the speedo steady, the GPS would have caught up and matched it 100% dead on... For instance I checked it again this weekend and the speedo said 70mph, the GPS was 70.1-70.4.....Close enough for me...

OH BTW, this pic was taken in Mexico.

oh ok... i thought it was. i guess on older cars and bikes where the speedo sensor runs off a gear that it would be linear, but with computers then can manipulate it a little more.

and i've also been on this road in Mexico

I was always told it was exponential. (non linear) by all the mechanics i spoke to.

So you are saying it is proportional? (linear)

ok gotcha. good job on explaining exponential and potential to me though.

Key here is 07 CBR...which blew away the competition in the 07 shootout..and the 08 is suppose to be badder then it..so we will see where the r6 stands when it shootout is all said and done...

07 and 08 cbr600s are the same bike. not much changed.

only difference is the rake 2007: 23.7" rake, 2008: 23.55" rake (the right grip was rubbing against the tank on the 07) and colors.

so it wont matter much really but I guess we will have to wait and see.
