    all the 600cc's are pretty even as far as performance. i would sit on it and see what you find the most comfortable for the type of riding you will be doing.

    That answer was a way of telling you that if you are a newbie rider or don't have much expierience, you shouldn't start on such a powerful machine.

    You should get something a little more sane that won't punish you for new rider screw-ups IF you are a new rider.

    If you have at least a years worth of expierience (although some will advise more time than that) on a motorcycle, I think you'd be OK as long as you take it easy and learn the bike first.

    Get whichever one is the most comfy for you or looks the best. They are all THAT close in performance and reliability.

    meh they are all the same for the most part, as well as insurance, get the one you think looks best, i think the 03-04 kawi zx6r looks sexy as hell

    I'm not sure how old this post is, but allocation from all manufacturers are done for the year= dealers arent going to get any more new bikes. my point... what you see is what you'll end up with. gixxers are not so popular this year cuz next year theyre getting a little make over. they peak in power a little lower which is nice on the street. my buddy's kawi 636 is very fun and stable with plenty of power throughout. The 600RR is supposed to be a really nice ride this year with the exception of 4 recalls and not compliant with road racing(gas gauge). i picked up my r6 4 months ago and i got one of the last ones coming through my state this year. it takes little effort to push at its max but sometimes i get crazy headshake when at the limit. I have full coverage insurance on my bike and i'm paying $260 a month! people tell me i'm getting ripped off so shop around.
