After I sold my first bike (a '00 500R) in April, I've been itching to find another bike.

I really, really like the looks of the newer ZX-6R's - the single exhaust, headlights, etc.



I looked on here and didn't see anyone talking about them. Wondering if anyone has one or has had one, and what the deal is. And a good price to find one for? I really like this bike.

Thanks--
Ryan

I have a ZX-6RR...an '04, and it's bland compared to the '05-'06s. Totally different bikes. The '07s are even better. I test rode one and the completely new engine kicks some ass. It sounds sick, too. I like Ninjas more than the other brands. I'm not biased, but I just like them more and that's why I keep on the Ninja line. :)

Right here!! Very athletic bike. Much more nervous than the 500r you are coming off of.
I enjoy riding mine but it is an extreme seating postion (not as bad as r6) and its a ery RPM based motor (no torque).

Just realize that this bike is going to respond instantly and agressively to any inputs you give it. Id get an hour or two in a parking lot before i got right out in traffic.

I loved the responsiveness of the ZX6-R owned a 00 and rode friends 05 on occasion. Great bike all around, to me much nicer than R6 and quite different than GSXR.

Its a great bike! You should definitely pick one up! Especially if its a 636.

i have a 06 636. its the instruments look to simple and bland compared to the R6 and gsx-r... it rides awsome tho and very responsive!

i believe it was 2006 600 bike of the year.
exactly, the 636 won for a reason, if your not looking for a lot of tricks and gagets you will absolutely love the bike. However the Gsx-r is almost best of both worlds however in the twisties and straights the 636 wins!

I'd take the 07 ZX-6R over the 05/06 636. Better bike and better looks.

If you're looking to save a penny, the 03/04 636 in orange is my favorite Kawi.

Would probably look 03/04, thanks guys!! Wow that orange is beautiful, but I love the blue I posted (my 500R was almost the same color) - don't wanna turn EVERY head I drive by, LOL!!

stay away from the 03/04 .. the 05's have better ergonomics.. the 03/04's have a more aggressive riding position

IMO, you can't go wrong with any 6R. They just get faster and handle better as the years go by.

3 of my buddys have them.

Randy, (#538) '05 ZX6RR



Freddi, '07 6R (# 922), sorry for the small pics





and April, Freddi's wife: 2001 ZX6R


as you can see, me and my riding friends are big kawi fans, lol. but really, anything moderately new 90+ in good tune and good shape is great for the track. if thats your kind of thing. Almost any bike is good and fast enough.
