Re: Best year for R6???

For me it's probably the 03-04. They have the best front end in terms of feel and handling of any generation R6, and some people even say they are the best ever on a mass-produced bike. Plus, I prefer the looks of the 03-05. They're still small enough to be nimble and such, but large enough for us fat guys to actually ride around the track without looking quite so silly.

Re: Best year for R6???

I have the 03 and love the headlight set up. That's my 2 cents.
