600s still don't do sub 11 second quarters. The last comparo test I looked at for the 2000 model had them all around the mid to low 11 seconds for the quarter. No fair, trick question!

Cool

And the winner is (drumroll)

The 2000 Yamaha YZF-R6

At least if you believe the October 2000 edition of Sport Rider magazine, which lists a 10.99 second quarter mile at 125.24 mph.

Still not quite EX500 territory, but not shabby.
