after 06 go like shite off a shovel ,ive got a 57rr 7 blade and the r6 felt more comfy ,maybe a bit down on power but how fast to you wanna go got it up just under 155mph with very little provocation on a very short stretch of bypass ,i cant or would not have believed it if some one had told me how they go but ive seen and done it

all

ive heard about them was that there wasnt a lot of power low down abut get it to about 13-14,000rpm and youll find it or something, its got longest power band ou of 600 i read as well just right up top, but they are suppose to be sh*t hot handling.

cheers for real world info on it as this WILL be the next bike for me, when i get the funds:lol:

ive got an 07 plate as u know... ive had 3 636 cc ninjas before the R6 .. i, in my opinion find the r6 more involving and better handling than the ninjas..

those who say its got crap low / midrange .. are the journo's who think they shud be out racing rossi instead of writing for a mag ( yeah right ) / or those road riders who, as we mentioned before.. talk shite!!!

ive raced litre pilots.. and ive stuck right behind them.. even beaten a few ... the latest R6 is an awesome machine for a 600!!! i know i ride it every week!!

U WONT BE DISSAPPOINTED when u get one mate!!

get saving :biggrin:
