Supersport - CBR, R6 or GSXR?

Hi everyone


I am getting my first supersport. I am looking at getting one of the following three. 

Honda CBR600-RR 2005
Yamaha R6 2000
Suzuki GSX-R600 2003

Any advice on supersports would be much appreciated. I am getting lots of mixed opinions on them all. 

Thanks

Daytona

If I was you, I'd go for something different and get a Triumph Daytona 675 :)


Something like this: Daytona

Suppose it depends on your budget as well.

600 RR I hated mine, was glad to see the back of it,


R6 never had one so can't comment

I do have GSXR 750 and it's awesome.

Easiest bike I've ever ridden.

What are you coming from bike wise ?

Supersport

Thanks for replies. I currently have a 2012 Ducati Monster 696. Starting to feel like a 125 now. I want something that has more top end. The Monster has no top end power really. Also I would like fairing, specially after a long ride on the Ducati recently. Naked bikes aren't great for long motorway journeys. Specially when it's windy. 


A supersport feels like a good progression for me. Time to move on. 

Budget wise, I'm only looking to spend £2000-£3000 on a bike. Letterpigeon I am not too keen on the sound of modern triumphs, and it's a little out of my price range. 

Help me decide! :)

Just

chuck your leg over them, ride each one and decide that way. If the bikes not right for you, it's not right. Peeps opinions just confuse or reaffirm your view. 

And why a 600 nowt but buzzy little rockets....see what I mean :biggrin:
Have fun.

Ah fair enough, I did think after I'd posted that they're pretty expensive lol :) Like everyone says, give each one a rip and choose from there.
