R6 all the way. Doesnt look like an alien bike.

Guess I should change my name, not a poser anymore.

Sit on them with feet up at a minimum. There is a rather large difference in position.

I'd go with the kawi, but I'm abit biased. Seems like everyone's got an r6, but that can be a local phenomena.

Either way both are great bikes, so there is no wrong choice here.

Depends on the year and looks:

2004 -> R6
2005 -> 6R (love the undertail exhaust and slipper clutch)
2006 -> R6 (except that it is higher now) a close call.

Good point. Slipper clutches rock. Once you try one, you will not go back

the reason i said zx6r is because of the slipper clutch, i love the feel (i feel like im glued to that thing), and i want to cream myself anytime i see one because they're so sexy looking.


but the R6 seems like its going to be one hell of a bike this year. 17,500 rpm redline. theres a link that i found on gsxr.com that has a clip of the R6 hitting the rev-limiter...and damn


go sit on them (once the R6 gets here) and pick im sure they'll both give eachother a run for the money. i doubt any 600 class bike will blow away the rest.

that made dropping acid seem like a mild cure for boredom
