Which 600 has the most torque?

I searched and didnt come up with much. I am NOT getting a liter bike, so that's not the answer. So between the GSXR600, R6, ZX-6 and CBR600RR, which has the best low-end power? I am a big guy, 6'4" 230#. TIA!

EDIT: Comfort will be a pretty big issue for me too. I've been told that the Yami is one of the more uncomfortable ones. I sat on a CBR and it felt really nice.

675 Daytona wins the torque contest, sounds better, costs less and comes with a 2 year warranty.

Sit on all of them, see which one is comfortable, and what fits you. Everyone is different.

And if it is your first bike, I'd suggest getting used.

+1

Not to mention not every swing'n d*ck has one.....

The older kawi 636s had the best midrange out of the bunch though........600 and low end is an oxymoron.

I've been looking for CBRs, they seem to be a bit more scarce than any others.

You could also look at the ZZ600R, its more comfy then a ZX6R and has better midrange. Lastly you could look at a YZF600R, not sure if they are still making them new or not but they have pretty good midrange and are really comfortable to....not to mention very reliable.

If you are looking for comfort and something that makes a good daily rider, I would look into some of these.

I sat on a VFR and liked it as well. They look to be a little more $$$ than what I am looking to spend.
