It still is the prettiest 600 in my book, although I would like to put side by side with the new Kawi 636 to make my final decision on which looks better. It also looks like the Kawi will just rape the competition in the supersport class.

Ok.. Enough talk about the 13 rr. They should just stop the production of the 600rr. Now we all owners of the 600 will be legendary owners of the best 600 bike ever known.

Yup, here in Phoenix I ride past 20 GSXR's and R6's before I see another CBR. They are played out as far as Im concerned. The suzuki's are all plain ugly IMO.

Lol, I pass more RR's than I can count. All of the Japanese big 4 are great performers, and within about 1% of each other. The 600RR is way past due for a redesign, as is the R6. The Honda is by no means the "best" 600. In some ways it is, in others it isn't.

I'm still happy with my choice, and next year there might be one of these in my garage.

Agreed, the R6 is too low up front and high in the back, making for a very planted riding position, but uncomfortable and it doesn't exactly inspire confidence. The CBR is the opposite, it's low and relaxed for a sport bike.

GSXRs are way too common around the Atlanta area. Ducatis and Aprillas are too hard to come by for a reasonable price. My last bike was a Kawi, so I wanted to try something different :) .

The 600RR could use a redesign though. It's been the same since what, 2007? Surely the bike could use some techlnological advances besides ABS. Maybe traction control?

Why fix what ain't broke?
because some of us (me) would have loved to have an r6 if they weren't so damn short. i'm waiting for someone to redesign a 600 (not kawi or suzuki) that is narrow enough to me to be able to ride on the street stock height
