MCN Senior road tester Michael Neeves tested the motorcycles on road and track to see if the contenders could match the Honda CBR600RR.

What I want to know is how many 600's are sold for road use vs track use, surely road use is a big market so why is the power always up top, just been to a dealer a few days ago, despite having an 09 R6 for sale in the lot, he also owned 600rr and zx-6r and says kawasaki make the best spread power over the rev range and finds it best to ride, they didnt have one for sale so he wasnt selling me anything to say that, i've never been to a track so thats purely the reason i stay off the R6's but i've only owned honda's my whole life not even owned any cars so i'll probably go honda again anyway :P (i've ridden other bikes before people call me biased) need honda quality as I ride all year every single day even ice and snow(unless just fallen and not pushed out the way by cars)
