So I really want some opinions on the comparison of the cbr, gsxr, and the r6. So far all i have heard is that the yamaha looks better. does it have any other benefits to it?

Taller seat height. You forgot the ZX6R...which is the only other bike I've ridden extensively.

R6 vs. ZX6R...

R6 feels "wider", the windscreen is at a much better angle, has side exhaust which is much nicer (undertail exhaust can create a "whirlpool" effect, making the rider's back dirty). R6 pumps out more horsepower according to Sport Rider and Cycle World Magizines. To me, the R6 "leans" better.

The ZX6R has a gear indicator and sounds better w/o Yamaha tick.

My friend left her 07' CBR600RR at my house while she went on a trip to mexico (didnt want it to get stolen)

I compared my 08' R6 to her 07' CBR, And the honda just straight up looked cheap. The quality of the parts was just poor looking...

Im sure they all ride pretty similar...I know the honda has the most neutral seat position...You dont have to lean as forward as the rest of them

hahahaha, I would say get what YOU feel most comfortable on. the honda has alot more noticable power much lower than the R6. and thats the thing about the R6 how high the powerband is. I have never ridden a suzuki but I sat on one, they are pretty comfortable . the kawasaki feels kind of wide to me.

i never riden anything but my 6... seen all other bikes and model of course and must tell r6 is sexier, the only other bike i'd consider on looks is 07 gsxr 600... in 08 they changed the style back to ugly :nocontrol

R6 is your only choice, really :fact

good luck on making the right choice, the only right choice :nocontrol

It's generally accepted that the R6 has a dangerously high panty removal factor. Panties flying at you from all different directions will cause reduced visibility, and traction loss, which can be extremely treacherous especially on aggressive lean angles.

yes i figured there are a ton of people coming here and asking the same question, sorry about that. The whole yamaha "tick", thing you said, is that a problem that will lead to much more worse problems? My 05 gsxr kind of did that and i started using AMS oil. If you havent heard of it I strongly recommend it.
