Should I buy an R6

I have a 95 Gixxer 600 and I want a new bike and I can get an 02 R6 at a good deal or should I look for bigger?

I also have this posted in the New riders section.

Definately the R6 would be a good buy unless you have something else in mind.

It will be a big bang from your '95 bike & be with a lot of snap & go in it that you simply did not have in the older iron.

A (newer) 600 is more power than anyone will ever need. I say go for it I'd love to have one myself.

even though you said "gixxer"

No man its all in the paint. While black has less pigment than blue, it absorbs light thus slowing it down. While the flames do add some power it still cant match the blue, though it is faster than regular black due to the flames. Red and yellow are slow due to having heavier pigments. green has both yellow pigments and blue pigments making it slower still. Silver and gold bikes are the slowest. Not only do they have have pigments and metal added to make them shine, but the reflectiveness of the paint actually reflects light rays giveing them a kind of push backwards, though it has less of an effect at night.

How ever the 01 and 02 Red R6's are about the best color scheem that yamaha had espically for the Red.



Best is around here anyway. Not a lot of yamaha's weather R6 or R1. When you do see them 95% are blue.
