LOL. I TOLD you on the 6er you were going to have to work a little. Many more gear changes to keep the revs up. But like already stated you can wring the snot out of it, and the bike will just take it. And take it. Haha. It will be perfect for the track or for your girl, but you are a big guy, so the little 6er that could is going to have to work some. But look at Jayboy, he has the 600 (or is it a 750) and rides the p!ss out of it. To each their own

To answser your question, I've owned many R6's (3) and loved my 04 for the track, but gave my other two to the girlfriend. She loves her bike and wouldn't want anything else. Not to say that 600's are girls bikes, but compared to a 1k... There really is no going back.

I use the 10r on the street and 600 on the track. Now, I am moving on to gixxer 750 and my R6 is up for sale if you are looking to buy a race/track ready 600. I also have a 06 636 street. Everything is up for sale. 06 10r, 636, r6, and gsxr750. All are 2006's.

IMO, 1K is better street riding than track.

Why not a 750? Best of both worlds..

Main hit against the 600 is no torque, and HP is in the high RPM range..

Nice thing about 1K is you can leave it in 5th or 6th all day.

there is something about an r6 that makes me keep going back to it.
It does not compare to my duc in anyway shape or from but its so much fun to ride to the wall.
It is still the bike I compare every other bike I ride to.

might be just sentements though.

My only reason for being on a 600, is because I have no self control. Of course, if I was really smart, Id be on a 250. For me, the 1k is way to tempting to power wheelie on the street.

I've owned dozens of bikes of all displacement from 250s, 350 two strokes, 500s, 600s, 700s, 750s, 900s to 1ks. Each has their advantages.
Like Jody and Clyde stated, in my old age a 1k is easier to ride fast on. The 600s have to be ridden so hard that it gets tiring having to keep it on the boil all the time to make haste! A 750 is the best of both worlds, but my money is still on the litre bikes foe their torque!

The other bike I have, refered to as the 'parkinglot space keeper' is a 600 Katana.... notice you never see me on it? My gf rode it and so did others. Right now its an inch off the ground which is no go for myself, but when I do ride it and open up that kan of tuna.... it does just that... smells bad...

Its a cruising bike, although lighter still heavy for a 600 comparison. Jloleo's 600 and Chris' k7 feels nimble but I always prepare for the torque curve and it doesn't come. In sharp corners I'd be all for it. just not for me on the streets. I need to be able to ride and accelerate with my Starbucks in my hand without concern for another vehicle passing me or getting in the way between sips.

I am just spoiled I guess.

If I took the girl completely out of the equation it would be 1k all the way. The sad reality is that she'll be gone before the bike is! Cause I am a dickead, and I run em off!

People are way too proud of thier 750's man. I can get a nice 1k for what peeps want for those. WTF?

I can pick up a 6 for cheap and not break my heart or pocketbook too bad if I go down on the track.

I hate riding out. I feel like I have good throttle control, and personally the 1k seems easier to ride than having to be on the pipe, turning a gazillion rpms all the time like a 2 stroke. I used to race a banshee back in the day, twin cylinder 2 stroke. I know what that is like.

lotsa pros and cons. Ima kick it around. Thanks for the input.

i've been from a 600 to a 1000, and now i'm back on the 600.

i'll probably never own a 1000 for the track. i have more fun on my 600's on the track, and it's much more satisfying zooming past a few literbikes with the 6.

plus the 6 doesn't tear up tires like a 1000 does.

Should me being 6"4' and 250lbs have any bearing? Or does that matter?

if u are a serious track person then why are u riding a 1k anyways??

there is no reason to own a 1k in houston..


that being said, i've had 600s at the same time as 1ks and ya 600s are just annoying to have to downshift on the freeways to leave those cagers behind

not all 1ks are created equally, but ya the newer 1ks are so fast its insane


whatever the case, buy a 600 for the track and be done with it

Having power close to a 1K and nimble as the 600's. Best of both worlds. Gotta pay if you wanna play.

Stick with the litre bike ddue. Once you know how to ride one there is no comparison. You don't see the motogp riders going back to the 250 class do ya?

If you want a street bike, buy my chopper.
