    '04 750 >>>>>>>>>>>> '04 R6

    no contest in every category

    - looks better
    - more torque
    - more hp
    - almost same weight
    - everyone and tehor mom has an r6
    - 750 is even more rare than 600/1000
    - better racing seating, clipons below triple clamps, etc

    Suzuki's always feel cheap(to me), but there's no denying the performance of the
    Suzuki.

    Plus the SUzuki has those godforsaken 3 spoke wheels. :run:

    'Cept I would only ever ride a Yamaha or a Kawasaki.

    Yamaha has a better build quality than Honduh and Kawasaki just builds nasty bikes that you want to ride.

    Suzuki, well fuck them, they all look the same, so they all look like crap.

    researching one right now actually. Yoshi TRC is leading the group at the
    moment.

    Might be a while though....I'm expecting a large amount of money to be going
    out of my account in January :(

    the red R6s just look .....I don't know....out of place.

    the black R6s are usually squiddly.

    IMO the 05 Blue R6 is the best looking of the generation. Not just because
    I have one, but mainly the vinyl looks better than the predecessors (plus it
    can be 100% removed without screwing with the clearcoat if you want)

    reality is....there are very few 05s around....well around here at least.

    Certain models need to be certain colors, you don't see any green honda's rolling around, and for good reason :eek3:

    I agree that certain models look better in certain colors, but I don't think that the absence of a green Honda has anything to do with looks. I think it totally has to do with brand marketing. Green is Kawasaki's color. Red is Honda's color. Delineation of colors helps people more easily identify a manufacturer as a bike goes by on the street. Plus, it helps to create brand loyalty. i.e. "Ride Red" and "Team Green"

    Exactly, and Yamaha is Blue

    So that's why Blue R6's, although extremely common, are still the best color option for that bike
