considering getting a new one and i cant decide
and i got a picture of the red kawi cause thats probably what color i'd get
The Kawasaki looks nicer. They're both kill-yourself bikes though.
I could see myself riding a cruiser, but I could never ride one of those things. Too twitchy, CoG is too high.
isn't the '09 cbr redesigned?
Why does the kawi have the midpipe exposed?
so you can chrome it out, of course...
Om nom nom blue

I think the 600 has had some unexpected engine changes. Supposed to make more mid range power and 3% more peak power I think. I think thats it.
I really wish IL didn't require a sub now...
whats CoG mean
CoG = center of gravity.
I hate you more and more every day
CBR 600 if you are going to go the 600cc route.
the kawi will not make you happy. to sloppy imo.
i would go with the 08 CBR 1000 RR but i have ridden mostly liter bikes.....
i'm a little intimidated by liter bikes... i can just imagine myself turning the throttle a little too hard during a turn and lowsliding, even if its not realisitic that i would do that
whichever one feels the best to you because you aren't going to even come close to the full potential of either bike.
no i can completely understand your feelings on that!
infact i could probably do just fine on a 600 but i REALLY like the power and torque of the 1000's
plus im 6'2" 200lb's so the larger bike suits me a little better. that and i have had my old 600 maxed out to where i needed... hmmmm, "wanted" more power. lol
but they are intimidating for sure. 2nd gear stand up's with just a quick flick of the throttle.
10 of us just did a nice 350mile round trip to the coast and back, and at sea level my bike just screams!
