The 650 Ninjette (not the 6R) is a great bike. The suspension is lacking but the motor will surprise you. A co worker rides one and it sounds great on high speed runs. I may ride it soon... I just dont know if he can handle my bike.

Use to love the R6 but I don't like the way the fairing splits around the headlights on the new one. Honda RR is a cool bike but I rode one and found it uncomfortable (kind of unusual for Honda). It had my butt stuck pretty high in the air. The Suzi.. well, I just don't like zooks. Just a thing I have going (known one too many squids on them). That plus they have not reviewed all that well in the 600 class of late. Just saw a newer model ZX6 the other day and I was impressed. That certainly would be my choice for a Japanese 6 if I was lookin. Good reviews (everyone loves the motor) and it looks cool.

BTW, that new Triumph 6 gets a lot of love from motorcycle.com. They just named it their 'Best of the Best' bike for 06.
