Not sure what is meant by "direct access", but if it means he has no previous riding experience, I don't think any of the modern 600cc sportbikes are good for true beginners. It's easy to say you'd keep the rpm's down below a certain rpm, but panic combined with a lack of experience can easily get you killed. I'd recommend something more like a clean used 250 or CRB/ZX500 to get used to riding, then sell for nearly as much as you bought it for when the time comes to upgrade to a 600.

I did a direct access course to pass my test. The difference between what you will take your test on and an R6 is day and night. On Mercury.. I recommend you read the thread 'So you want a sports bike' that is sticky in this forum.

Below 6K my R6 (2003) is slow. Slow as in only as quick as my 240BHP car.

If you want to ignore the post there and buy something like an R6 or Ninja, then, well, good luck. You are going to need it.

You're welcome :)

But seriously, buy something slow (which will more than likely still smoke a Porche) for your first year or two whilst you learn what riding is and work your way up to something like the R6.

And remember ATKATT!!!! (Buy the kit before the bike, buy the bike with the remianing cash)

I wonder if it is someone who has been interested for a while, but is only now getting the license.

In the UK you can only ride a bike up to 33bhp until you are 21 or have three years on your license. But going to DAL route it is more difficult to get your license, but you can ride anything immediately. As long as you are 21 or older - you can't get around that restriction.

It's just a road license though, not racing.
