its not about cheap when its your first bike.But the R6 is already cheap. It is only like $5k on average.
I have a lot of thinking to do haha
I started on a 07 rs6. its a remake of the 05 r6. I liked the bike, but found my supra more fun, thus its being sold Friday. Good luck. For me the bike had no real tq at low rpm so for getting used to the bike i would keep it in a high gear. Then as i progressed i would ride the rpms out. However like others have said watch your ass if you go over 12,000. it get very very fast real quick. And adult who is smart and wise i think could handle it easy. But if you have a wild side then you might want to pass. Also i have a bit of dirt bike experience so that helped just a small bit.
Yeah but its just not that, I liked the bike but I only used it to ride to work most of the time. I really hated all the gear, yes I know you have to wear it all. But going from the messing around on a dirt bike to the fullface helmit i was wearing kind of killed the free feeling for me. I felt the targa of the supra was more free feeling than the fullface. And I really wanted to play safe so that all I would wear. I might try a 1000cc later down the road but for now im going to keep with the suprashoulda got a 1000cc then. trust me..there's plenty of torque there. my supra is still down and i dont miss it much cos the CBR is plenty good enough.
I've honestly never understood statements like this. Granted, I've never been on a GSXR, but it takes nearly an act of God to power up my R6 (with stock gearing). Same thing on my buddy's CBR600RR. I have to clutch it up on both bikes. Sure, I can roll off and roll on the throttle HARD while shifting weight and suspension to get the front end up on a powerup, but it seems to take so much effort I wonder how in the hell people are "accidentally" doing it on a 600. Of course again, I'm talking about stock gearing.i putted around town my first 2 months on my gsxr 600 ( NEVER RIDDEN A BIKE BEFORE THAT ), i never took it over 5-6k rpms, i had a few accidents where i accidently grabbed too much brake, and almost tipped, and once or twice where i gave it more throttle then i shoulda. not sure about the r6, but on my gsxr, as soon as i hit 7k ( even on accident ) the fucker picked up the front, and scared me shitless.
I respectfully disagree! I ride my R6 to and from work (40 mile commute each way). Being able to ride instead of driving to work makes my commute MUCH more enjoyable, but to each their own.riding a sportbike in-town/commuting is like a fish out of water.
