No offense.. but I highly doubt you could have hit 180. Even with the standard mods IE: PC/Bazza, exhaust, sprocket change, air filter on a stock engine. Are you sure you didnt have it switched to KM/HR?

Why don't you just buy a 1000cc or bigger?

While you are at it don't even bother wearing a helmet.

Re: Why Are R6s Getting Slower Each Year?

Emissions / noise requirements. The difference is a couple of horsepower. Unless you're a top level club racer, you're not going to miss it. Even then, you won't miss it because you've got the bike stripped down and the ECU flashed.

Because an R6 is a race bike not a drag bike... It's geared for corning and acceleration out of corners and hard braking. Not driving straight. Go get a damn busa if you wanna drive straight really fast. Hear it makes our dick grow let me know.

Re: Why Are R6s Getting Slower Each Year?

It's amazing how grown ass men can act like immature ass little kids.

Thanks for the positive responses to those that offered them. I figured the emissions would be the restricting factor along with a few others. There are many assumptions made by members in this thread that were incorrect in regards to my question. Instead of me being petty like some of those members, I'll just let them enjoy their childish laughter fame.

The thing is, everyone on this board is different with one exception; we all love motorcycles. Some of us are smarter, while others are, well how can I put this, are 'UNEDUCATED' and ignorant. While they tend to find laughter in a petty response that won't benefit a future reader, they fail to realize that they can't even clearly articulate a clear thought. Then again, this only a forum right.

Lastly, I can pick up any magazine and comprehend the year to year differences. I chose not to. This information will out last any magazine printed, so that's a thought to consider.
Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but I'm ashamed... I need an '08 R1!
