I like the zzr, its got decent power, handles pretty well, and is a lot more comfortable to ride than the zx6r. plus it is tested and proven technology, Kawasaki has no problem with putting the same bike out year after year if its a good design.

i enjoy the 650! put a diff sprocket on it that thing can be a beast. i dont particularly like the zzr's. old technology, if you want something along the lines of the zzr get a FZ6 or SV650 those are some fun bikes. the zx6 has been on my list since they stopped makin the 636... i dunno i guess it all just depends on what your looking for

i am certainy no expert on bikes but the ??? is what do you want from a bike, Power....Power, Looks and comfort... they were built 2002-2005 marketed and sold in europe and imported to compete wit the BMW and such in the sport touring market. not sure about now but only a hand full of bikes are faster than the ZZR, basiclly modified ZX1100 and beautiful to boot.
160 HP @9500 rpm

busa's are great but then you become part of the heard, Zx-14 i would consider going from ZZR to ZX14 but the price, and the riding position is a little more laid down, but it is SWEET...
but the looks of the ZZR is kinda love or hate it, Different, someone ask me today what is that he said i thought it was a blackbird at first... but then i explained..

well I guess it all depends on which zzr you're looking into. I love my zzr600 - it is def. more comfortable to me so I wonder if the same wouldn't hold true for the 1100 or 1200
