    .. ridin' sport bikes for a while .. definitely goin to ride them until I can't do it anymore .. im seriously considering the xb12s .. im in to a different style and i love the sound ..

    .. has anyone ridden these yet vs. how the feel against an R6??

    my other bike is a FZR-600 (slow as balls) chopped up to hell with a stage 3 jet kit .. header back .. and lowered 2 inches .. i know its going to definitely be a different ride .. just want opinions ..

    thanks guys

    The lightning and R6 are in two completely different leagues.

    It depends on what you want. Air cooled harley v-twin or Water-cooled inline-4. etc. etc.

    Firebolt will make significantly more torque, but I believe the R6 will get it in the overall race. R6 better trackback. R6 better aftermarket support.

    Ride both. Words can't do justice.
