Imagine 10 years from now how good they'll be :-)

Apparently they still haven't added strong backface lighting to the tachometer..

Were there any RR's on hand, or is the "true" 600 coming in a later release like in '03? I'm sooooo anxious to see a Hayden whipping one of these new bad boys up on the box in Supersport.

Just as I was getting used to my one-month-old 2005 GSX-R600, and even thinking it was a fantastic bike that would never be matched in any important (to me) way by anything else that anyone would be able to buy, along comes Kawasaki... Oh well. Do I regret buying the new penis extension last month? Only because I didn't really have enough money for it. But it is still awesome, even if the new Ninja is faster.

Decisions, decisions, decisions...
 
The 600 class is like Ben & JerryÂ’s Ice cream. Which Ben & JerryÂ’s is the best? Hard to say, theyÂ’re all so good. The fact that they all exist proves we have it too good, for our own good. With 600s, by the time you figure out which one you want, you could have forgotten how to ride. After a couple weeks of reading road tests, you could end up with something akin to mid-corner, newbie brain-lock. A normal person (nobody, whoÂ’ll be reading this) could suffer panic attacks, trying to figure out which bike they want. And, neurotics should probably look elsewhere for entertainment, unless they enjoy being heavily medicated. I honestly think that the reason I donÂ’t consider 600s has more to do with a nervous mind, than a nervous engine.



Tough life, huh?

No problem, just wait for the MO comparo. Then it'll be clear as day which one is the best.

Nice review indeed...one thing, though...proof read BEFORE submit:

On a wet racetrack, the ZX-6R's supple suspension, liner power delivery and predictable brakes kept the drama to a minimum.

Is it LINER or LINEAR?

Once again, great review, thanks!

So, Sean, youÂ’re saying thatÂ…The rain, on the plains of Spain, fell on your plane, to Spain, causing pain, strain and disdain. ThatÂ’s just, plain, Insane!
