no... r6s are top of the line!!! I got into a wreck a year ago and the bike got complete totaled. I went into a 20 mph corner at 60 thinking i'm hot shit, but nope i was just a newbie :sing. I just realized the engine is still sitting around so i posted on here to see if there is any takers. Yamaha makes good bikes though, can't complain about the r6.
