Default On the Power Delivery Bandwagon

Give me a second to climb on.



I assume you're talking about new bikes.



None of the 600cc SS bikes have a lot of low and mid-range response, but the R6 is the worst. The thing is nearly dead until 10,000 RPM. This is really undesireable for street riding. You'll have to ride around with the engine screaming all the time to get any reasonable drive.



It does sound really good, though.



The GSX-R seems like a much better overall package for street riding and is a bit cheaper.



Why haven't you considered a new R6S? It's more street-biased and will get around a track just fine, probably within a few tenths of a sencond of the new R6 with equal riders. (Actually, maybe faster in the hands of most riders since the R6 is reportedly pretty tricky to ride at a 10/10ths pace.)

Default Ergonomics...

Pick the one which FITS YOU BEST!



All the YGZXCB-RRs are so close in perfromance, and you state that you won't be using the performance to the absolute limit, you should get the one which is most comfortable and fits you the best.



Which says you should really look at the R6s (the older, more comfortable R6), and the F4i (the more comfortable CBR).

Default Which has the color you like best??

What color do you like best, then buy it. They are both just about clones of each other.

Default Why not get a Buell XB9R or S

Why not get a Buell XB9R or S, they have a lot of torque and are easier to ride the either of the 600cc bikes.

Maybe he can go riding with KPaul after he gets his Buell.

" ....I am not looking for top speed performance cause I enjoy living."



Well it's a good thing you've decided on the 600's then. These are very slow bikes with no top end speed and you certainly couldn't kill yourself on one. Good choice.

6 of one or a half dozen of the other.



Instead, get a Speed Triple!

Of the two I'd get the GSXR because I like Suzuki's. I would also check out the new 675 Daytona and the 650R Ninja twin, also the XB9R and even a 599 Honda. It's a very compettitive class, make sure you explore all your options and get the bike that's best suited to your riding conditions and skill level.
