'06 R6, have you ridden or own one?
I'm not the type to go on to dealerships and sit on their new bikes if I have no intention to possibly buy one. I feel bad to lure those guys. Plus, some dealers won't let you sit on their bikes lest you're serious.
So I never saw the '06 R6 until today at parking lot. Despite the tach indiscrepancy, I think the bike is great, and it looks gorgeous. Although my current 600 and new R6 is pretty close in terms of weight, but the R6's dimunitive size is amazing. In length and width, it appears 65% size of my '99 CBR. Amazing! The R6 resembles a tricked out a pocket bike. But the passenger seat is the worst I've seen of any sportbikes, I guess another reference to pocket bike. Its lack of use and the passenger pegs are just for show, I'd remove them, makes no difference. I think a girl would have to be an insane masochist to sit on it.
But it's a definitely a top contender for my next possible purchase.
