I don't think anyone is going to argue against the R6.

You are referring to the best for an experienced rider THEN I will agree that the R6 is said bike while R1 would come in second.

Still that is only the thinking of those that ride sportbikes & know the difference between the different makes of sportbikes plus you have confined us down to just one maker.

In a Cruiser or a dirt iron then it would be another model or two.

Best 600 Yamaha

YZF600R - the liquid silver ones look best but they say the blue ones are faster (especially if they have the Deltabox decals).

Though it is NOT a true Deltabox made out of alloy, but stamped steel frame painted silver.

In my garage is an '87 Yamaha TZR-250 with true Deltabox frame & the f/forks are much stronger & larger then 750s of the same time PLUS far superior stopping power then 750s of the time, but what the heck this bike is a detuned TZ-250 road racer with different upper part of the power plant, still flat Mikuni carbs, steel petrol tank, lights, signal lights & so made street legal. Only I dumped the street legal exhaust system for a set of road racing expansion chambers.
