Best 2003 600cc Sportbike?

I am thinking of buying a newer 600cc sportbike this spring. I am choosing between the following:

03 Kawasaki ZX-6R
03 Yamaha R6
03 Suzuki GSX-R600

Which of the bikes is the best bike for the money, performance and comfort wise? Any input is appreciated. I am leaning toward the ZX-6R but it could always change.

Thanks

Honda CBR600RR. If you don't have anything against Hondas. But then again I'm Honda biased

Nothing against hondas, but it is just about $1,000 more than other bikes that's all.

It's a possibility though.

I see. I haven't been pricing 600's latley, so that's probably why I didn't know that Been too busy lookin at the new liter bikes myself. CBR1000RR

If I had to...I go R6. Was what I was considereing when I got my F4i. Got it a helluva lot cheaper than I would have gotten the R6.

Don't the Yamaha's have issues with shifting. False Neturals in between some gears.

I shopped extensivly before I bought my bike and found that there are many more hondas out there and it is much easier to find a good deal. This was for f4i's though. This summer several guys in our crew had kawi's and I was impressed, they seem to be an awsome bike with with a great look.

i think the kawasaki zx-6r with the 636 cc motor is cheating in the 600 cc class they are proud to claim they are the fastest yet they have an extra 35cc's......thats sorta like suzuki saying their
GSX-R 750 is in the 600 cc class and whips everybody else..what thats ridiculous....i guess kawasaki thinks the 600cc class can extend to 699cc.....i cant want for the Ninja ZX-699R!

Same damn thing...

You wont notice a damn bit of difference between any of those bikes while on the street (except for maybe the way power builds; the kawi is supposed to have great torgue). The track, I'd suppose, is a different story. Of course, on the track, it's really the rider who brings out the best in the bike. Besides, they all have their own strenghts and weaknesses; you'ld mind as well tape a pic of each bike up on your wall and throw a dart. Best out of four should settle it.

So go for the best deal you can find.
