I bought a bran-new 2006 ZX-636 back in the day and owned it for a couple years. I ultimately traded it for something less painful on the back of the neck for riding longer distances. I loved the bike otherwise, it was quite the missile. However, it did set the bars to buzzing at roughly 75 mph in 6th gear (don't remember the RPM). How are the vibes on this new stroked engine? Any memory of the buzz on the last 636?

To be honest, I never rode any of the previous 636 models. My first ZX-6R experience was riding the 2007 model, when Kawi ditched the 636. The chassis on that bike is still one of my favs when it comes to Japanese sportbikes.

But to answer your question, I don't have any recollection of vibes being a major issue. It didn't buzz more or less than any other Inline-Four I've ridden. However, our street ride was conducted at a rather, um, spirited pace through the local twisties. I didn't get a chance to take it for a long freeway stint.
