If you know the Starboyz, you know they beat the piss out of their bikes. They now have a sponsor, they got a 954, gix1000, and aprilia (sold), and I think the 954 is on its 3rd-4th motor. I`m an avid suzuki fan (contrary to my screen name), but if you want a serious stunt bike, honda is the way to go, IMO.

Not to piss on your parade here, but aren't you a brand new rider? I'd strongly suggest against a brand new 600RR for that reason alone, but you are also looking to stunt? I see a totaled bike in your future and you being stuck with a huge loan and no bike, or committing insurance fraud and contributing to rising rates. Neither one is very appealing.

i dont want to do a wheeli the first time i ride my bike. im just asking for the future. i went to the bike races down here in miami and i only saw gsx-r. there must be a reason! maybe is because the gsx are cheaper than the hondas. im not sure. but i would like to know why people dont buy cbr 600.

Just about anything on two wheels can do a wheelie. I know some people on here that learned to stunt on a Ninja 250, but that was after riding for a while. It's not something you should worry about learning in the first few years os riding. Don't get me wrong, I think wheelies are bad ass, but the only ones I've ever done were completely accidental and were very small. I would rather learn to ride the bike well rather than stunt it and rash the plastics up. If stunting is something you're really interested in I would still suggest you get an older bike to learn it on, because you will dump it while learning.

As far as why you saw only GSXR's, who knows. The general consensus I've seen on here is that the best all around stunt bike out there is still the CBR 900RR from a few years back. I'm guessing you saw mostly Gixxers because they are well suited to the track, and if it was races you were at then that's pretty self explanatory. I don't think they are any cheaper really, and it could also be dependant on the area. It seems like I only see Suzuki's where I am now, but when I was living near Indianapolis it seemed all I saw were Honda's.

Not too many people stunt 600rrs because of the undertail exhaust, the suspension, and its very leaned forward, in other words, its meant to be a race bike, on the street. You`re right though, alot of people rock gsxrs, but if you start hanging out at stunt spots you`ll see mostly older cbr 600s, 900rrs, 954s, f4i`s. Hondas can be beat to death and not show any signs of it. As for the price... shop around, I bet I could find atleast 10 cbrs in the "stunting price range" quicker than GSXRs. As spicersh said, ANYTHING can be stunted, its just how well it`ll take to it, and what your preference is.
