The new R6 has a lot of technology integrated into the frame design which gives it acceptional stability, along with the adjustability of front and rear suspension (high and low speed settings). Fly by wire, really high revving engine, aggressive styling, etc...all were factors that convinced me to purchase one.
I use mine as a daily driver, and aggressive weekend riding. I think the "lack" of power in the lower revs makes it a bit more friendly in this aspect. If I want to go fast I just keep the revs up. Good luck dragging that knee! or dragging your valve cover (BMW) hehehee
