I think the best bargain here is R6s when it comes to price and performance, while '06 R6 is the most expensive for a 600, $500 less than '06 GSXR750. Funny how Yamaha likes to charge extra for various colors, like BMW cars.
Btw, I was looking at R6's key features, and it read:
All-new, light, powerful and bristling with knowledge gained from years of racing, the YZF-R6 is the most advanced production motorcycle Yamaha—or anybody else—has ever built.
The YZF-R6 is the first production motorcycle with a fly-by-wire throttle system—for flawless response under all conditions.
Straight frame concept: developed from the Yamaha M1 GP machine, the YZF-R6’s steering head, swingarm pivot and rear axle all lie in a straight line—for unsurpassed handling—with an all-new inline four-cylinder engine designed for optimal layout and mass centralization.
Slipper-type back torque-limiting clutch greatly facilitates braking/downshifting from high speed.
Formula 1-style air management presents very small frontal area and excellent aerodynamics; new ram-air induction ducts cool, high-pressure air through the steering head for optimal combustion, more horsepower and enhanced engine cooling.
What exactly is fly-by-wire throttle system? All throttle system is cable operated anyway.
