yeah my opinions is why all the other bikes are higher price is cause your payin for they're way too many commercials and it pays to have what everybody and they're mother has lol

all kidding aside and as much as I hate to say this. no company will match the build quality of a honda. just take a fairing of off a cbr and inspect it. pure quality compared to a yami, kawi and suzuki.

In that case would you say you'd take an 03-06 636 over the 07 RR? You'd probably say that they don't handle as well, and that they're Kawasakis, yet the 07 Ninja handles better than the RR does. Let's be honest, anyone looking for a new 600 really doesn't care all that much about low end torque, and neither bike mention is comfortable.



There's a reason kawasaki has among the most loyal riders.

I'll play along. The 06 636 my friend had (and I flogged here often) had lotsa power. In stock trim, I felt it pushed a bit in areas/opportunities the RR won't. The RR is quite fidgity over rough stuff under load/stress, but I'd take it over the ZX anyday. Especially after riding the 07.

Don't relate what's happening in AMA to how you'll like a new bike.

lmao. are you really bringing ama factory effort into a conversion about stock bikes?

since when did stock kawis come with ohlins sbk forks? marachini wheels? brembo brakes?
those forks cost more than any 600
