No man its all in the paint. While black has less pigment than blue, it absorbs light thus slowing it down. While the flames do add some power it still cant match the blue, though it is faster than regular black due to the flames. Red and yellow are slow due to having heavier pigments. green has both yellow pigments and blue pigments making it slower still. Silver and gold bikes are the slowest. Not only do they have have pigments and metal added to make them shine, but the reflectiveness of the paint actually reflects light rays giveing them a kind of push backwards, though it has less of an effect at night.

I must be the only confused one. How long have you been riding? If its been a long while (measured in years), then why did you post in the New Riders section? If not, then I'd recommend against an R6.Slowgixxer600 said:I have a 95 Gixxer 600 and I want a new bike and I can get an 02 R6 at a good deal or should I look for bigger?
I also have this posted in the New riders section.
