I've enjoyed the time we had together. I want you to know that it's not you.. it's me. I need to just come out and say it .. there's someone else. Someone with a slipper clutch .. and suspension .. and AK20s .. and traction control bazzaz & quickshifter.
I've had nothing but Hondas thus far but I just can't pass up this deal on a ZX6. I'm gonna miss the RR. Crazy moving to a bike I know nothing about. Wish me luck!!

nice, be sure to post pics and a review. Kawi did there homework on this one imo, did you get a new 636 or just 6? what year
+1 you can't leave us hanging like that! I don't really like the kawis but then again I haven't rode one ever. Their new bikes are looking aesthetically better whereas the direction Suzuki and Honda are going aren't really my kinda style.

if your tires are slashed and the kawi is taking a nap on the ground when you go to visit her early in the morning...... it wasn't the honda and you can prove anything!
It's an 09 ZX6. Older but this bike is totally race ready. Only missing 1 thing, Brembo master. Full pipe, rear sets, chain convo, ohlins damper, ss brake lines, galfer wave rotors, trac control bazzaz, quickshifter, suspension, AK20s
My 07 RR had a brembo master, ss brake lines, a gpr ... and no slipper
After selling the RR I'm only out 1k. No way it will ride as comfortable as the Honda. Nothing beats that but I'll get used to it. I'll post some pics after I paint it.

I sat on a lot of bikes at the show last weekend. I must say I really did like the new 636 in black. I didn't find the new 600RR Repsol quite as ugly in person as it is in pictures. It still felt like the same old bike but I didn't like that tail section. It'll be interesting to see what can be done with that.
Thank you for purchasing a 600rr as your first bike.

I think the new 636 looks hot but one thing that you will find that sucks on that bike is the lack of a steering damper. There is a dude on youtube by the name of 'riding with tom', just bought a 13 kawi 636 and he said he got some scary tank slappers at high speeds on the highway due to the lack of a SD. For those of you that say "Just put a steering damper on it" that is about the ugliest thing I ever saw on a bike, all of them! That's what is hot about the cbr600rr is the HESD, built in! Looks nice and clean that way, just like the under-tail exhaust. Also, I like to use the triple tree hole for a GPS dock and a steering damper up top wont allow for that unless you get creative and then it looks more like shiz. Also, Kawis do not have the reliability and build quality that Honda has.
Like they say the grass always looks greener on the other side.....
On the other hand, Honda could have annihilated the competition with a hot redesign and a slipper clutch.
Oh Btw, traction control is for *ussies! Just saying... (Edit, I see the OP is a chick. my bad! You get a pass then. carry on...) lol
How many of you guys will end up with more than 10,000 miles on your bikes? The percentage is VERY low so reliability is only a factor for some of us guys (and grrrrls) and the Kawi will run for years and years if it's taken care of. To me the biggest factor is the thrill I get when I see the bike, and ride the bike. I guarantee that the Kawi will deliver.
