Default Re: '06 Yamaha R6 or Honda CBR 600RR?

I work at a dealership that sales all brands but havent had a chance to ride the 06's yet. Both are great bikes and doubt you could go wrong with either. From the reviews Ive read the honda is a better all around bike and more street friendly. Good luck and dont pay for frieght and prep charges they are bunk and just profit tools along with gap and extended warrenty the F & I guy will hit you up for when you do the paperwork. You should pay around 8500 plus tax and that is all. 8500 is a fair deal for you and dealership.

Good Luck. Mike

Buy the one that you can't take your eyes off of.



You'll never ride either one near it's limits on the street.



If you don't get the one that makes you drool (R6 anyone?) you'll wish you had it everytime someone else rides by.

Heck with those. Get the New Triumph 675.

I've read that the R6 is better track than street, a little shakey in the front at high speeds, but sounds like a freakin' missile!



CBR's are more forgiving in their handling. Maybe not quite as exciting but you should be able to thread it through the twisties faster than on the R6.

I am not sure "comfortable and smooth on streets" applies to either one of these bikes. But seems your mind is set on these two bikes. R6 for me, though personally I'd get an SV650 or Z750 as far as smooth and comfy goes.

You may want to do what you can to sit on them or speak to more people. Both are physically small bikes. If you're 5'6", doesn't matter. If you're closer to 6', you should look further. Even the Suzuki 600 is larger than these. I also think the Triumph 675 would be a better street bike.

This is the sort of bloody nonsense up with which I will not put.



The R6 looks better but I'm too tall for it; my knees hit above the bump in the tank. I'm between 6'2 and 6'3. The CBR fits me great. This has caused me to start believing that the CBR looks better.
