Question

What's the deal.....

I see no support for the new zx6r on this site. I'm going to by a new 600, and the F4 is ahead based on the amount of info available in the Honda section. Is it that the bike is new or that no new 6R owners are registered?

The reviews have been good, but I want to hear from owners!

Come on up to Deal's Gap. You sound like you need to brush up on your Japanese!

His wife will never let him come to Deal's Gap. After the way he disrespected former President Carter last weekend.

i know exactly what you mean 6T9,
when i bought my bike it was a between the F4 and R6, all the honda questions i asked got answered in sworms but i asked one simple question in the yammi forum and NOBODY answered it. i asked if people that have rode to up had their passengers complain about comfort? no answers, i didn't know, and now i am a honda owner! even though our fearless leader is green, no offence! there seems to be alot of red riders in this forum. i hesitate sayign that, knowing that we shouldn't say that this site favors honda AND IN NOWAY DOES IT!! it just proves that...

i think the forum is reflective the marketplace. honda will always sell a lot of 600's. they have great quality and the magazines love them.

unfortunately, the other 600's get lost in the crowd.

I agree,
There are just more people out there with Fx's then ZX-6r's. Mostly because I think they are just more popular. (I won't get into the reliability debate, I don't have an opinion).

Me personally, once my 6e has outlived its usefullness, a 6R will be my next bike . I don't have a desire to go up a class, and I am very happy with Kawi's (I'm green blooded even if my bike is red...there's green under the cowling..I found it)...

Better get that leak checked out Will!

I think that the ZX6R will get there as far as the popularity is concerned. The F4 and R6 just had one helluva jump on it.
