Which 600 for my needs?

Hey all, Ive been riding a couple months. I have a suzi gsf500. Ive put around 4k on it so far. Im in a situation financially where I can get a 600.
Opinions about wether you think im ready or not IS NOT the point of this thread. Im looking for certain things in a bike and the gsf is not delivering. Mainly what i want is STABLITY and HANDLING. Which 600 is the fast and has the best quaters, i could care less about. Im looking for a bike that I can lay down into a corner and be completly confident in it. I want a rock solid 600, if that makes sense. I dont want any wobbly or shaky front ends.

When speaking with local riders they recomended the gsxr for this style of riding. Im open to sugesstions for RR bikes from any of the big four. I think its mainly down to the RR and the gixxer, from the way theyve been described to me. But if someone says the r6 is the most stable on solid bike out there, so be it.

Sounds like the RR is the bike you are looking for.

YOU'RE NOT READY!!!

Just kidding.

I really don't have any input over which one is more stable, but have you considered the Triumph Datyona 675? That bike is

...Probably not the best wording here.
But it does sound like the RR is the perfect bike for you since stability and cornering is what your looking for. Good luck and have fun!

And the award for most rude and pointless post goes to: 98gixxer750!!! Congratulations! Hahahaha



I have an 06 RR and I am absolutely in love with it. It handles extremely well and doesn't lack in the speed department either. You definitely will not have a problem with a "wobbly front end" unless of course you are jerking the handle bars

Good luck with whichever bike you choose.

traditionally hondas are the easiest to ride and inspire the most rider confidence... there was that one 93 900rr i owned that inspired no confidence BUT, that was a fluke. i think a f4 or the new rr might be a good choice.

Thanks for the replies. I like my gsf but, it just seems like its unstable at speeds about 65 or 70. Plus god forbid a gust of wind hit it while im on the freeway, I end up in the turn lane or something.
