I mean the R6 is a terrible street bike. I dont under stand how ones license would be in jeopardy if you have good throttle control.
Basic power facts:
R6 makes a max of 45 ft lbs of torque @ 11,000 rpms
R1 makes a max of 80 ft lbs @ 9,000 rpms
So nearly double the torque at less RPMs. The manners of a good streetbike.
The R6 is like a stubborn goat... constantly needs a kick in the ass to get moving
Funny thing personal preference, the simple fact that a small twist of the wrist on an R1 puts you well over the speed limit, granted, with a huge grin, but far too easy = license loser . You have to work the R6 as you say. The good thing about personal preference is that itís personal, and yours doesnít make you right, but I wonít knock it because itís yours and your welcome to it
. I find the R6 better on winding too, where the R1 harder to manage and requires more throttle restraint ( on road), but Iím probably wrong there too 🤣
Last point, the speed limits here are 20mph, 30mph, and 40mph before you get anywhere you can legally do 60-70. The R1 in my experience of my 13 plate model is no better than the R6!at these speeds and a tuned R6 is better. Again, just my experience. So, all clear? But remember, itís just my opinion, experience and preference - not fact....
