The differences are personal, I'd get the one that sits the most comfortable because who cares if a bike is 1/10 of a sec. faster or weighs 4 lbs lighter if you body aches after an hour? ( Damn, it takes me an hour just to wake up and get going)

The older I get,
The better I was.

whichever bike has the lightest rider will pull the best. The real life differences are miniscule.

The bikes are very close

After sitting on all 4 of the new 600's. I can tell you the Kaw and Suz feel big. Mostly because of the width of the fuel tanks. The Honda and R6 feel small and fairly simalar to my Kawi 250R.

On the power side the GSXR 600 and R6 are close. The suzuki has a little bit of a power advantage but the R6 is better in the tight twisty stuff and more comfortable to ride.

Which ever bike you pick you'll like

Me I'm stuck between the R6 , Honda F4I and the GSXR 750 I want to have all three but I don't really have the funds to buy them all.
