Nice bikes man!!! How does that r6s feel?
Truthfully, I wasn't revving it because she wants to break it in gentle and she was on the ten behind me, but, a little disappointing in the power department. I realize I'm used to a ZX10 but I really was expecting more. I'm hoping that it really kicks from 6 to 15 grand. It handles really well, and it was light as hell but NOTHING on the bottom end. Again, I've never ridden a 600 so I could be totally out to lunch.

It actually has quite a bit more from 6-15K.... it doesn't really do much until 8K or so.... That's just the modern 600. They are made to wring out before you get into the power band! Of course, it's not as impressive as the 10R when it come's to power, but it's a blast on the track.

I still trip out on the color schemes of the older bikes... cant believe we actually used to like it! hahaha... nice collection though. That R6 is definitely a nice bike and handles very well in the twisties.
