Hey Peoples....I need your help...What is the most comfy 6? Now, I do realize that this is a subjective question, but your opinions would be greatly appreciated...I am about 5'10", 200lbs....I am looking at the R6, F4i, ZX-6R and Gixxer 6....Opinions please...
Originally posted by Birdman Well, the obvious answer is sit on them all and see what fits you best. Now that that is out of the way I'll give an opinion. From most comfortable to least comfortable; ZX6R, F4i, R6, GSXR600.
Originally posted by Amber6 Well, if you're only concerned with being comfortable, the mags all say that the Kawi is the comfiest. (granted, that's practically the only nice thing they say about it).
But, if you aren't going to be riding for hours and hours every day, I would consider buying the best 600 in its class: the R6.
I beg to differ there Miss.
SR ranked the ZX6R as 2nd only to the R6 because of a minor suspension tweaking the bike needs. They described the 6R as being "a suspension calibration away from being number one". Cycle World ranked the ZX6R as best 600 in 2000. These were in 2000 of course. I don't think SR tested the 6R against the new GSXR600 & F4i. And I don't think Cycle World has done a 600 test since either. But everyone agrees the GSXR & F4i are uncomfortable. The Gixxer due to its riding position. The F4i due to its seat.
I agree that the R6 is best for the track and/or aggressive twisty road riding. But the ZX6R is best for overall street riding and long distance comfort, yet gives up only a little to the R6's stellar track performance.
But what do I know......I've never ridden any of the above bikes!!
