  • Great bike!!
    By  (I am an Enthusiast) on May 13, 2010

    So I sold my FZ6 an went for the Katana 600. I must say it's a awesome bike. Let's list the pro's then con's

    Pro's

    Throttle is spot on, You even think you wanna go..The bike goes.

    Front brakes, Got good power, very easy to figure them out an how hard they hit.

    Power/torque. ...

    Control, Highway speeds handles great, took it through the mountains in WA today, I can throw this bike through tight turns at speeds exceeding the legal limits with easy. City speeds it also handles fine.

    Con's

    Top heavy, speeds less then 7MPH the bike feels like it want's to fall over. Keep a foot out, an you will be fine.

    Weak gearing at start. I want power when I get moving, I gotta get over 15 MPH before she really wants to GO.

    Rear breaks are weak..Use them in combo with your front. Rule of thump is 60/40, However I feel this is more 70/30 with the power in the front, an hardly any in the back. This feels good in the mountain passes were you might wanna tap a light break. But city, you gotta rely on you front.
