Nice article. Having a different question is frequently a good thing. I bought a 2006 R6 after listening to my riding buddies dire predictions of "unrideable on the street" Nope, as you describe it, it is at home there too. Although it is a total blast to ride at a track day. Makes this old slow guy feel like a real rider. Confidence is what it's about (apparently).

The Derbi review, Euro Naked comparo, Boss Hoss, and now the ZX-6R...in the first 15 days of the New Year.



I think a certain Motorcycle site got a big bag of coke for Christmas...

Default Excellent Review

Fun read Pete...You are developing a great writing style.. Heck I was watching 24 but I had to finish your piece... your enthusiasm was contagious I am glad Kawasaki fixed the all the problems I saw with the 06. You pointed out all the ones I knew about and a few more I didn't.. Great to know that the best value in the motorcycle world (the 600 cc Super sport) is still getting better.. heck because of its superior handling, braking and performance is probably one of the safest bikes out there*

Maybe I should just trade in the 01...so many choices..

[i]

*kpaul says, "sportbikes if driven within the traffic laws are safer than any other motorcycle.". i.e. better to avoid an accident with a great handling bike with superior brakes and acceleration.

"Makes this old slow guy feel like a real rider. Confidence is what it's about (apparently)."

You nailed it.. After riding a couple of other types of bikes (cruisers and standards) I got back on my old 01 Ninja and I felt I was flying a fighter jet vs a Cessana 172 that the other bikes were.

Thanks for the "Inside the 6R" shots of the cutaway bike, AND the "machinists buffet-table". I absolutely loved it.



I love cutaways. Ever since I constructed one at a company I used to work for, I have a serious appreciation for the hard-work that goes into making one look passable, let alone stop-and-stare-would-you-F'n-lookit-THAT! kind of good.



I really miss those types of pics, haven't seen anything much like them since the demise of Cycle magazine.



I also have to say the Staff of MO are really gettin' it all together. Being compared to Cycle is a Good Thing™. -- In its day, it was the best Motorcycling Magazine out there. Period.



Goodonya, [i][b]MO.

"Event horizon?"



"Event horizon?"



You keep using this term. I do not think it means what you think it means.



Steely Dan is not one person. We get fringe benefits, not French benefits, it's not the Leaning Tower of Pizza, and James Dean was an actor—Jimmy Dean makes sausages.



And an event horizon - in general relativity, event horizon is a general term for a boundary in spacetime, defined with respect to an observer, beyond which events cannot affect the observer. Light emitted beyond the horizon can never reach the observer, and anything that passes through the horizon from the observer's side is never seen again. A black hole is surrounded by an event horizon, for example.



In other words, it doesn't have anything to do with improvements in motorcycles. Sheesh.
