given the choice, wich would you buy?
1. honda cbr600RR
2. yamaha yzfR6
3. suzuki GSXR600
If it were my only bike, i'd get the CBR. If i wanted a track only bike i'd get either the gixxer or the R6.
I have an r6 so I lean torwards that bike.
Yzf 600R because comfort > an extra tenth's of speed
on my 02' 600R ive drag raced a R6 from 40-140 and it was dead even... not a slight bit of pull or loss... totally even from wherever we ended up against each other from the launch.
i'm also about to buy a bike, i'm going with a '99 or so gixxer for now, but still cant decide which to go with, a 600 or a 750, it'll be my first bike.
anyone know of a good bike forum???
how much are 99 gsxr's goin for?
i like the blue\white ones
www.sportbikes.net but i might as well tell you know. if you tell them its your first bike their all gonna say get a 250 for a year or so which i also agree with... so just be warned their safety nazis there first. youll get good advice though mostly
2004 models: CBR
2003 and older: GSX-R
playa is this your first bike btw?
They are all awesome i would go with the one you can get the best deal!
although i would ride any of them, and based on my personal preference i rate them
so, basically you can't really go wrong w/ any of them
thanks, i figure i'd just troll around and read important info, i know i should go with something like a 250, but i'm not really into popping wheelies and doing crazy 200mph fly-bys or acrobatics, so i'll just get one of those and be REALLY careful until i'm comfortable enough to attempt something crazy. i know i can, i'm controlled enough
by the way, thanks for the website address.
Why stop at 750 if its your 1st bike. Just get it over with and get a haybusa.
P.S. Stick with at the most a 600cc bike for your 1st. An FZR600, YZF600R or an SV650 will be more then enough for you.
yes, and i dont care what anybody says i can handle a 600. i know how much power these things have and respect it.
personally, I think the gixxer definitely seems to handle the best out of all of these. The CBR is a good bike too.
I haven't ridden the new models yet, but assuming you're talking about the last gen bikes, I would say the gixxer for sure
this man speaks the truth and honestly i think from my own experience youll have a shitload more fun with the sv650 ... V-twins are fucking god's on the street for low end torque and puttering around... they make power from all the way down while on the 600's you need to reach 8-9k rpm just to start REALLY going...
you are obviously not ready for riding, because thats the attitude that lets real riders know that you DON'T respect these machines.
Thats almost funny. Been more than one person from sportbikes.net and cycleforums say that and then come back and tell us how they wrecked.
Or, in the case of sexydude on SBN he couldn't come back and tell us because he hit a pole and demolished his head. :shrug
Since you have such respect for power I say fuckit. Just go buy a Busa like mine and enjoy the real power. I mean, those smaller bikes don't have shit. Get something at least a little dangerous and snicker at those guys with the "tiny" bikes.
