Hi there. I would like to know which of these bikes would be better suited for a newbie. I sat on both of them and really didnt like the R6s almost laying down riding position. The ninja felt very comfortable and that is the one i will be picking up tomorrow unless there is any reason otherwise. I like the more upright feel of the ninja and i like the looks and instruments better too. I want to get a bike just to have some fun and have a nice, fast means of transportation to keep the miles off of my new 2002 corvette Z06. As for my size i am 5'10" 175lbs. So i think either is a good sized bike for me. The R6 was offered to me at 9k out the door(thats including prep,tax,tags,ect.) and the zx-6r was offered to me at 8k out the door...i think the ninja is the better deal but is 8k a good price or should i seek more of a discount? Thanks and sorry if these seems like a jumble of words. Any one in my area who would like to meet to help me out is welcome also.
