Of the 4 "main" brands(Honda, Kawi, Yamaha, and Suzuki), I think the littlest 600 WEIGHT wise, is the gixxer 600. No clue on the size wise bike...

I could be wrong, so don't quote me on that...

Suzuki


Honda


kawasaki.

It looks like overall kawasaki 600r is beating out yamaha by a few points of an inch and a couple of pounds.

A lot of people say the the r6 is one of the smallest bikes.

Yea your wrong. I closed the websites but I think it stacked up some thing like this
This is dry weight according to mfg info on site.
600R Kwacker 355lbs
R6 357lbs
Gixxer 6 361lbs
Honda 370lbs

why the tags will not work for Suzuki webiste IDK.

Dude I just went to the Suzuki website and the dry weight of the gixxer 600 is 354.9 pounds. Am I reading this wrong?

EdgeRanger my question on speeds, distance, height, & fuel capacity are not going to have you wondering now--are they? Just because we Cdns use the metric system.

Well to be honest when I put down my weight it is in lbs for my bathroom scale is in lbs, my height has bee around the same for some yrs, bar becoming stooped, while weight of powder I use in my reloads is in grains & not grams, & so many more. Those & so many more are still in the mind as what was used here in North America for so many yrs.

Back in '77 I was two days in court, last part of September, over RCMP that had charged me with Dangerous Driving (a Capital Offence in Cdn) on a Honda CB400F m/c & the two cops were trying to use metric lingo. My lawyer said that since the incident took place in April & not July (change over to so much metric crap) that they please use the (what ever he called it) now in court.

Also since I am so lousy with numbers or memory I can always recall that one due to the Criminal Offence.

I know the R6 is small, too small for me. Not sure abouth the kaw. If you are a small sixe person I am sure you would love the R6. Go try them on for size.
