Default Re: Aussie Dyno Shootout: R6 vs ZX6r

Wow I expected alot more from 36 more cc's. The Gixxer 600 is still stronger than the R-6. I can't wait for the shoot out.

However, you have to remember that neither bike was stock...

Default Aussies already have the Z1000

And they're doing a dyno comparison against an FZ-1 & Hornet.

It doesn't seem like the new Kawasaki's motor will unseat the FZ-1. I'd like to see where the SV1000 will fit in there.

I was thinking of order a ZX6R but now I'm thinking the Yami...I do love the inverted fork and radial brakes ZR6R.

Is the Kawi strong or the yami weak at 8500?

Ok, now that I read what they had to say, I understand why the R6 had the dip at 8500.

Well, the question is settled now. The Ksaki makes the most power, therefore it is the best. The charts prove it.



No need for any further testing. All squids can go out and order one now.



Squids, don't forget to order one of Gabe's brain tanks, also.

I understand that Arkansas Rep Bledsoe will amend her bill to add the requirement that riders of 600cc sportbikes will be required to show proof that they have brain tanks, as well as the $10,000 of medical insurance requqired of all riders.

Yeah, does this prove that the ZX6R is stronger than the R6, or that Akropovic is better than Yoshimiro?



Also what is with testing with aftermarket exhausts but no rejetting (or whatever you call the FI equivalent)?



Still, gotta admire the concept of getting test bikes from dealers not specially tuned versions from the factories (not that anybody would do that!).



Cheers
