i dont want any technical data but whats the advantage of the slipper clutch?

About the slipper clutch....have you ever downshifted and you get the rear wheel hopping? Well, the wheel is trying to slow down to the Revs so it tends to hop. With a slipper clutch, it will ease that from happening. So you can take corners deeper and brake deeper cause you can actually use the engine braking to slow you down without the fear of locking up the rear. Now most of you would probably not even use it. Besides that, you should never have to use it in a street senerio. If you are using it, you are riding too fast for the street and you need to take it to the track.

my opinion....the greatest bike of all the 600's is the one you're most comfortable on and ride the best. Seriously, all of these bikes are fast and they all handle well. For me it comes down to I fit the best on and feel most comfortable with the R6. It gives me way more confidence than the Gixxer, so that's where my money went. Just my $.02

redline is the highest your engine will turn until it start to hit the rev limiter......fyi...dont get too high into the rev mlimiter
