  • 06 R6
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 29, 2008

    Very good bike. Owned for a year and never had a problem with it. Shifts smoothly and the power above 10k rpms is great. 4 stars on Ride & Comfort simply because I can't find a gel seat for the 06-07 year models.

  • Super Powerhouse R6!!
    By  (I am an Owner) on Sep 27, 2008

    The R6 may not have been bike of the year but does have beautiful Razor Sharp styling that every other bike at one point may envy. It has extremely high RPM's so high its screaming may make other 600cc bikes jelouse. I love this motorcycle, it definitely pulls nicely. Althought styling and performance ...

    I love this bike, its definitely my favorite in styling and performance.
