Just wanting some suggestions between the
06-07 Gsxr 600
or
06 zx6r

Im wanting to commute from school, work, and a little joyriding
and possibly see some track time, at Hallet, or local scca events, it will probably never see a dragstrip.

i been on a 150cc moped since the age of 14(it is my sisters moped so i still ride it day to day cause its fun), and then went to a 250cc ninja, and finally on a gs500e.

whats pros and cons of these bikes??

I personally like the looks and feel of the ZX6r and hate the look of the gsxr.

Also I'd say a 636 would prolly fit the bill well not sure when they stopped them

^^Depends on who you are. I like pain and even riding a friends R6 wasn't that bad. That said I think the zx is a better looking bike, built better, and the kawi makes your penis b*****

Don't know about the '06, but the earlier zx6r's were torture racks. Probably the most uncomfortable 600 (636) ever made. Get the Suzi. :)

Yamaha R6 is what you should get.

cbr's have been notorious for an "all around" SS if there is such a thing. I think the new daytona 675 is pretty nice too.
But not even close to comfy

You guys need to put your crack pipes down. The newer GSXRs are some of the most comfortable sportbikes around. I put 32k miles in 2.5 years on my gsxr600, and a lot of that was long road trips and commuting.

As to looks, most sportbikes are just plain sex on wheels. GSXRs are no different. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyway.

OP - go to the dealer and sit on the bikes you are considering and see which one you think looks and feels the best, and has features that will be useful to you (clock, multiple trip-meters, how limited the storage space is, can you use a magnetic tank bag, etc).

No one said that they aren't comfortable. Just not as comfortable as the CBR.

True beauty is in the eye of the beholder but you'll find on average more people who think the gsxrs are uglier than billy ray cyrus.

lol ya really pissy. i could care less if someone "calls my bike out"

the only people that do that or really give a shit are uber squids, like yourself, who argue about which new ss bike makes the most peak power (and as you were "called out" in the other thread, it isnt your precious honda)

Poor emo kid. Its only gsxr owners who get up in arms if not everyone likes their bike. Lol and yes I'm an uber squid. Lol you're a fool and might want to get shit right fuckstick I simply said that the R6 doesn't make much power compared to the CBR below 10k thats it and its true.

Go fap to your squidmobile:eek:nfloor
