Question

In short, how does the Kawi ZX-6 perform (power, handling, etc.). I've heard it's comfortable, is that true? And how does it stack up against the Kat 600?

Thanks.

Are you speaking of the ZX-6D, ZX-6E, or ZX-6R?

I'm always viewed Kats as...girl bikes. That's what I would buy my GF if she wanted one. Now a GSXR is a bike!

Dan...Comfortable enough with his manhood to ride a 600.

the only things better about the kat 600 over the zx6e would be, the kat is cheaper and it'll take old 1100 motors for drag racin' sleeper.

the views and opinions expressed by tony (cbrf2boy) are the ramblings of a total idiot. sbw.com, it's administrators, moderators, and members don't necessarily agree with and are not responsible for anything this idiot has to say.

The ZX6E is no beauty queen, but in my opinion the Kat is one of the outright ugliest bike made. YUCK. The kat is also heavier and less maneuverable. The ZX6E is a better overall performer.

But it *is* true that you can drop a big Gixxer motor in the Kat and have a straightline screamer. If thats yer thing.

Hey iowa careful there. The Kat does exactly what it's supposed to do. Lots of people carrying on about the Kan-O-tuna, but it doesn't claim to be anything other than what it is. A relatively inexpensive sport-tourer.

If I were getting a Suzuki, I'd get a Gixxer. My girlfriend is the one who's looking into a new bike.
