checking out the yamaha website, they have an r6 and r6s(which costs about $900 less). what's the difference between both exactly?

the r6s is last years r6, still a great bike, and I personally like the looks better, but it doesn't have the spun on meth, totally useless below 8 thousand rpm character of the new r6

The new R6 has a lot of technology integrated into the frame design which gives it acceptional stability, along with the adjustability of front and rear suspension (high and low speed settings). Fly by wire, really high revving engine, aggressive styling, etc...all were factors that convinced me to purchase one.
I use mine as a daily driver, and aggressive weekend riding. I think the "lack" of power in the lower revs makes it a bit more friendly in this aspect. If I want to go fast I just keep the revs up. Good luck dragging that knee! or dragging your valve cover (BMW) hehehee
