Bike comparisons

Hey all, I'm wondering about the pro's and con's of the following:
Honda CBR600RR
Kawa ZX-6R
Yamaha R6
Suz GSX-R600

All '11 year models.

Things such as weight capacity, handling, comfortable-ness, notorious for something, general maintenance, common engine problems, etc.
Might help for a future decision. Thanks.

I'm currently around 248lbs @ ~5'9.3'', but may be around ~175-210lbs within a year.

They're all exactly the same. If you're trying to decide among them, go sit on each of them and pick the one you like best.

This is typically the case, regardless of model year.

There are a few brand-specific differences that cover most, if I recall correctly. For instance, R6's and 600RR's don't have slipper clutches. And the variance in riding modes available is brand-specific too. Comfort is probably the most key, though, since you won't ride something you're not comfortable on regardless of its features or specs or whatever.

EDIT: Good luck with the weight loss!
