Great bike!
By Doug(Owner), Apr. 21, 2009
I sold my Honda 929RR Erion Racing Edition about a year ago and decided to buy another bike. I looked at the 600RR and the GSXRs but I really liked the R6. Handling is amazing! You can throw it into any turn with ease and the bike just takes it! I'm 6' tall and it's still fairly comfortable. Th... Read Full Review

What I really like about this bike is that engine braking is MINIMAL. Compared to the gixxer this thing has 5x more internal inertia. I've only taken it to... Read Full Review

cannot complain about this bike
By bob(Owner), Jul. 6, 2009
i'd have to say i agree about the lack of lower rpm power. it takes such a little time to get to 8000rpms when your really twisting the throttle. and once your there, its a rocket. in no possible way could you consider this bike slow. its light and easily thrown into turns. i havent done any mods o...
