Can't answer that since we dont have canyons here in Louisiana, but on the track I prefer my 600 over my R1. It is a lot less weight to fight after a long day on the track. Also, our local track is pretty short so a liter bike is not going to be use to it potential anyway.

No canyons here just some curvy roads and 2 hours from the mountains.

Tight and technical...R6

Long sweeping curves and straights...R1.

Obviously you have not been to the hill country.

I definitely prefer the 600 on canyon roads and mountain roads that I have ridden in Texas and in Arizona. The bike is much easier to toss around and I am not as worried about spinning up the rear.

i do not ride on the street but to me a 600 is a much better bike for the track. it is alot more fun to me. i have gone faster on 600s then i could ever go on a 1000...

My 2 Cents

600 = Just turn and it will follow.
1000 = Convince it to agree with you, then turn, then hope it follows.

very well put

Neither

I'll take my throw back 1994 RS 125

Riding in the mountains during the summer all the 6's and the 1k's are braking braking braking I'm just pulling pulling pulling

(until the straight away then I'd just pull over and let them go, but atleast I could piss them off in the thick of the apex hahah)

depends on where and how you ride, besides, if you are riding as if you were at a race track in canyons, you should just go to the track. otherwise ride however brings you the most joy.

but along the lines of that comment, miticale, check out the motorcycle.com article

the whole thing is a comparison between a suzuki v-strom, a kawasaki klr, and an aprilla rsv 1000 r

you would probably like that one
