Which 2003 600?

Hello,

My wife agreed that I could get a new bike in the spring.

Which 2003 600 would you (or will you) get and why? The Honda CBR600RR, the new Kawasaki 636, R6 (I like the black and red) or Suzuki GSXR 600 or 750.

Thanks

personally, i think brand k's zx6rr is gonna be the one to beat. if you go by recent performance, the r6. if you go historically, the cbr.

like most people, i haven't ridden of them.

but here's why i'm going with the zx6rr. it has adjustable swingarm pivot. i figure if brand-k is building that into their bike, they must be making a real effort at success.

the r6 will probably be about the same improvement over the old one as the r1 was last year. which is minor. it'll be a cool bike, but i don't think it'll be much better than last years. but in all fairness, does it need to be better at all.

the cbr is a honda. they build quality stuff. but every honda i ever rode, except for the 93-4 900rr, reminded me of a wrench. they get the job done, but don't have any soul. and the underseat exhaust says to me that they know they're getting their butts kicked everywhere else, we need a gimic.

the 636 seems like it'll be something less than the 6rr.

the gsxr is in the weird spot of being yesterday's bike.
