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.

I'll give another opinion. From most comfortable to least comfortable: ZX6R, R6, GSXR600, F4i.


Also, if you have any friends with these bikes, maybe try to take them around the block. Each mfg. has quirks that you might love or hate.

[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.

The Best

That depends on WHO ya talk to, or what Mags ya read, and who their Biggest Advertizer is

Although all bikes are good..I think the BEST, has to be designated as such by it's owner, as being the best for that person, and how it's riden...just mho

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!!

Hey, it's not like I expected people to say, "Okay, since Amber says her bike is the best, we'll believe her and we'll assume our bikes are not as good." LOL!

Hey....ya never know, I'm sure there are people on this board, that would welcome your words of wizdom

We all think our bikes/brands are the best!! (I just happen to be the only one who is right ) [/B][/QUOTE]

LOL....Right
