2008 R6 or 600RR

I need advise on which bike to choose. Ive read that all 600's are very similar but ive also read the R6's are more track oriented having most of their power up top, making it harder to ride them on the street. Ive read 600rr's have a lot of mid and are very nice every day bikes. Ive sat on both bike and i like the way they feel. I like the way the R6 looks more but ive heard better things about the 600rr as an everyday bike. Anyone with experience please let me know. Thanks.

How have you used your past bikes? In other words, what kind of use have you put them to?

Ugh, here we go again. And here I thought we'd get a break over the winter.

Is it even worth trying anymore?

BIG difference IMO. The CBR is a much, much better everyday bike. With the R6 you are sitting more aggressively, meaning that you are leaning forward more. It'll get old pretty fast on the street. The suspension is also more harsh and the power is all higher up in the RPM range which is very bad for a beginner rider.

The 600 RR is a much better street bike and while far from ideal for a new rider definitely the better of the 2. You'll have a much more linear power band to use so you wont have to ring its neck to get power. Not only that but the riding position is much more comfortable for everyday riding.
