Cool YZF 600 Input

I am thinking about getting a YZF 600 it is a 2006 model, is this a better bike than my 2007 Ninja 650?

YZF600 is a very good all around bike. I had one about 9 years ago and they haven't changed much since then. I have not ridden the 650 twin. I would think the YZF600 is a better bike for all around use with a little more top end and light touring capabilities.

It's fast enough to have fun on and comfortable also.

there are 5-10.

I have had mine 2 years. Love it.

and i have ridden the 650 plenty too.

650 wheelies easier. but the yzf600 definitely handles better and is faster and more reliable.

i think the 650 has more torque, more comfortable ergos but less top end

the yzf has less torque, more aggressive ergos and a faster top end


the 650 should be used more for long rides as a touring bike

the yzf is good for the opposite

I've put 61,000 miles on mine. Bulletproof motor, fully adjustable front and rear suspension, and comfortable for extended rides. Excellent wind/weather protection for commuting, too.

Go check out YZF600R.COM for more info.

Wondering why nobody mentioned the rock solid brakes of the YZF. Plenty fast and also enough mid-range torque. Only reason I sold mine was because I got bitten by that Buell bug back then. Would buy it again for the street. Also the weight makes it more stable at higher speeds and the fairing provides excellent wind protection.
