As a conclusion they rated each bike based on road testing, speed testing dyno and track testing.
In 5th place: the ZX-6R "belter of a bike until you ride the others", steered the slowest and brakes could be better.
In 4th place: the GSXR600K8 "just misses out on being the complete package" standard gearing is too tall in the lower ratios.
In 3rd place: Daytona 675 "like a 250GP bike in the corners, an epic machine", uncomfortable

No sorry mate,
I just pulled this one out of this weeks edition because there's been a bit of talk about 600 Sports bikes and top speeds etc.
I'll keep an eye out for you

In 2nd place: Yamaha R6 "without doubt the choice of the hardcore 600 rider", loses out on weight to the CBR, bit too "pointy" for the road.

and the winner for the second year running:























The CBR600RR, "great on the track out of the crate, steering is precise, engine is very strong and easier to live with on the road than the R6", 10kg lighter than the nearest competitor REALLY counts. Build quality is class leading.






What BOLLOX ,
don't believe everything you read

everyone knows the Yamaha is the leanest, meanest, sexiest, quickest, strongest and Rossiest of them all

The kwak is my personal favorite still. Also I wonder how they got 111 rwhp on the 08 675 when it barely made 103rwhp in this months issue of roadracing world?

I already knew the answer.


Honda have better marketing people that really know how to grease up the magazine editor to be number in one in their write up.


Honda and Yamaha might have an increase sales this year due to this sort of write up but since everyone have a suzuki, they will still be number one in sales. Kawasaki will still only have it's loyal owner which is too many too count.
