R6 vs FZ6 vs CBR vs GSXR
Hey everyone, I'm new here so please excuse me if I'm posting this in the wrong section. I felt it was pretty much on point.
For the past year I've been getting into sport bikes, and February of this year I bought my very first bike.
It's a 2005 Ninja 250. I bought this bike cause it was my first bike so I didn't know what to expect out of anything. Since I bought it, I've been absolutely in love with it. I love the freedom of riding a bike and the experience that comes with it. However, over the months I've been starting to get "too bored" with it as most people would agree, a 250 does. So next summer I'm planning to get a 600cc / 650cc sport bike. The question is, which one?
I'm narrowing my choices down to either the Yamaha R6, Yamaha FZ6, Suzuki GSXR, or Honda CBR. Can I get y'alls inputs on each of these bikes, please?
From what I'm understanding, GSXRs, and R6s are more track-oriented bikes, and I'm hearing CBRs are more street-oriented bikes and are designed more properly and comfortable. I've heard that CBRs are more reliable and haven't had nearly as many recalls as the other makes have had. I do like the exhaust underneath the seat, but can that be done with any bike? I do plan to add a couple mods to the bike such as a rev-limiter, custom paint job, probably with plasti-dip, frame sliders, LED under-glow lighting, maybe some LED turn signals and probably a couple other things I can't think of at the moment. What bike handles with mods like these better? Can I get all of your opinions and experiences please?
To be honest, I'm looking for speed and power delivery of a bike. On my Ninja, I throttle on a hill and I just stay put pretty much, sometimes I even decrease in speed. I know almost any super sport bike would fix this issue, but what bike do you guys like the best?
I'm a 19 year old male from Colorado. About 5'6" tall and roughly about 170 lbs. Though I am in the land of the hills and mountains, it is actually pretty flat where I am for the most part. There are a lot of pot holes here, though.
