I think the 07-12 looks much better.

The new 636 is a much better buy IMO...

When will they get rid of the under tail exhaust? They seem to lack innovations, but can build bulletproof motors, that's about it. Nothing to write home about.

Re: No one is talking about the new Hondas???

The OEM rims on the 600rr definitely look.... light. That's interesting.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

I love the wheels! 3 spoke wheels looks so outdated to me. Not sure what those headlights look like from the front? Over the underseat exhaust too.

3 spoke IS outdated... The R6 has had 5-spoke rims since 2003. They've got some very "marchesini-esq" rims on there though.

If I had to get a new 600 it wouldn't be the cbr. Looks like the new kawi is what everyone wants

I thought the same thing when I had seen the wheels on the 2012 cbr 1k but tbose were actually a decent amount heavier then the precious years. Some of the track guys on 1000rr forum with 2012's were willing to trade for the older version.
