Who do they think they're foolin'?

'Zactly wazzup with all these pop-up ads I see here today about Kawasaki’s ZX-6R? Don't they know the 6R is (hopelessly) "outdated"? Heck, I heard no less than Dave Sadowski say so on recent Speedvision race coverage! When a shoppin’ I did go, all the Yamaha salesboys verified it was an overweight piece of junk!
And how 'bout those 'AMA 600cc SuperSport Champ' ads? Obviously a hoax perpetrated upon us by some smug Yamaha/Suzuki/Honda owners getting their jollies (and our hopes up) by hacking into the Sportbike World website! Heck, we all know the 6R is sloth of an excuse for a sportbike (talk about slow)! And even if they did win ONE championship…well, we can chalk that up to the fluke factor!
And another thing...FIM 600cc SuperSport Champion? Well dangit; now that dog just ain’t gonna hunt! If the site owners don't correct this outrageous false advertising immediately, I see no other course of action except to stop frequenting their site! This is truly an outrage!
What's that you say? You mean to tell me the 6R IS the AMA SuperSport Champion? And you mean to tell me it also REALLY won the FIM 600cc SuperSport Championship (TWO Championships)?
Yeah, but if at’s really so...well you just gotta know it folds you up like some medieval torture rack that you can’t ride for more than race distance!
Wot's that you say...it's the most comfortable 600cc sportbike out there?
Hmmm....well if all that's true, who are we to argue with 'em when they say “ZX-6R Crowned King of the World” in those pop-up ads?

Nevermind…

ROCK ON BIG Kkeep rubbin’ their noses in it!

I'm not sure where you're going with this, but if I'm reading this correctly

Here's what I say to all the reviewers

They test those bikes in the most extreme of situations by some extremely experienced riders (which most street riders aren't).
I'll put my 6R up against any other 600, 750 or 900 in the twisties ( I didn't say straight line). With the proper setup a 6R is just as good (or better) than the other bikes in its class.

Uhh, Will,

I think he was being sarcastic. He also rides a 6R. and the last line was a Kawasaki Plug.

Will, please don't take that tone or I'll be forced to report you to a moderator.

Personally I think the ZX6R is a kick ass bike. It has the best engine in my opinion. The stock suspension is Great for the street, but if your going to race it, then ditch it for sure.
Who races (above amateur) on stock suspension anyways?

The Kawi has more HP and Torque and is very reliable. So do you like the color of the Honda engine better?
