    I chose the 600r and have been quite happy for over 18 months with it

    SV is a great first bike and will keep you happy for a long time. There is a huge aftermarket for them. They are also a very forgiving bike. With a little work they can be made plenty fast on the straits, and they handle awesome.

    600R. Looks better and is a great 1st bike. Ofcourse, having had one I'm a little biased.

    depends on what you want out of it. the bikes are so different, it's hard to compare.

    R6 and SV are completely different bikes.
    SV is Touring or standard or naked bike
    R6 is a rocket
    I dont really like naked bikes so im gonna go with R6

    ya i wana hear reasons also :) haha
    I hear there funner for doing twistys because of the torque and they weigh less... But i hear the yzf is a better biginer bike since it weights more its more forgiving and i also prefer the looks of it to the SV.

    either one is a great bike. the decision is up to the buyer if they want a bit more midrange from the V-twin or an inline-4. either one is perfectly capable, and a new rider will not be able to outride the bike within their first few years.

    shit, 99.9% of street riders couldnt outride either bike, no matter how long they have been riding.

    SV650S was my first :love:


    I have a friend with a 600r, and its heavier, and faster in a straight line, but the S should do 135 which is more than enough for a beginner, and flickable as hell in the corners

    i dunno about that, i'd say the sv650 is a much better beginner bike than the yzf600r. it's lighter, less power, more linear power delivery, and less plastics to mess up when you drop the bike. my buddy has dropped his sv650s a couple of times and you would never know except for the scratched mirrors and signals.
