My heart says gsxr...but the mind says R6
Which one is more street friendly?
gixxer is more street friendly..i have an '06 R6 and while it is EXTREMELY fun to ride on the street, it is basically a dressed up track bike
however, that single headlight on the gixxer looks like dogshit
how are you liking the slipper clutch on the r6?
it's the 2 bikes that i want to get this weekend
slipper clutch is pretty cool...when you are coming into a turn fast and downshift, it prevents a lot of the tire skippping/lockup that I have had problems with on other bikes...oh yeah, don't get raven, too many people have it already
Oh man tough call. havent ridden the GSXR but that R6 handles GOOD
I would personally go for the Yamaha
gsxr looks sexier imo
Gixxers look fucking gay. I went for an r6 and got an R1
I do more street riding and the r1 has a better low and middle range. The seeting position is less aggressive and on the highway it wont be revving to 11vtny billion rpm.
I hear ya...up to around 8k the r6 isn't lightning fast, but after 10k its retarded. However, I LOVE the seating position on the 6, there's no fucking around
The 6 has zero fucking torque at anything below "stratospheric" on the tachometer.
I think the GSX-R would be the better street bike.
Honestly, if i was going to go for a good streetable liter bike. It probibly get a CBR-1000 RR. The ergos are preaty relaxed, and it has the most linier torque curve of the 1000's. Plus better gas milage to boot.
If i wanted a good street bike/track bike. The R1 is preaty hard to beat. Excelent low gear acceleration, and nice flickability. But i dont think the riding posision is as comfortable as the CBRR's, though not as commited as the Gixxer1's.
I totally agree the only reason i own a R1 instead of a 1000RR is becasue it was just too good of a deal to pass up, hopefully next riding reason I'll sell it at a profit and pick up an 06 1000rr after they start to hit the used market
R6 is more of a track bike. It needs to be revved to hell to get a reaction from it. The gsxr would be more of a everyday bike. The power is just about equal. I have the 06 636 and the GF has the 06 gsxr. If you want balls out power for a 600....go with the 636..Hands down will wax ALL the other 6s...even the triple 675.
When it comes to liters...I went with the gsxr1000. It has power anywhere and everywhere. It's always ready to do it.
Did you call on that price? I know where you can get a 06 R6 for $9300-otd, too. Different place.
yea but the R6 only redlines at 16k, what a rip from their marketing of 17,500k!
I was talking to my friend and out of sheer practicality I rather buy the bike locally
Thanks guys! Im picking up a gixxer600 this weekend...now what color?
unless you locked up your rear tire at the track down shifting, you don't know what you're talking about. locking the rear tire on the street its never the same as locking it at the track. at the track you ride with full aggression. that's where you need a slipper clutch (shit) I wish I had that the last time I went to the track. specially when going into first gear (from 80mph to 25mph.)
You sir, are correct and obiously know what your talking about.
If only that was an option, we don't live in a perfect world.
oh my god I'm so sorry I offended you oh great one how could I not know what I'm talking about because I didn't lock up my rear tire at a track? Locking it up on the street would be much scarrier than locking it up in a controlled environment like a track
my friend has one already and I don't want him saying "ohh..you copied me"
Ever since when I was a kid..I've always wanted a gixxer...so here's my chance
This is why you rev match, or at least blip the throtle when downshifting.
Of course, only if you don't have a slipperclutch.
Also, on the street you really shouldn't need / want to downshift while committed to a turn.
I always try to rev match or like you said at least blip the throttle, but sometimes it gets the best of me and my rpms are a little of causing the tire to skip a little.
and downshifting before a turn is pretty much standard practice on tight ones, no?
