Well, I managed to get rid of the RR...Just needed something a little bigger that's all (I"m 6'4" bout 270)... and besides I got a good deal.... Don't get me wrong, I loved the RR. The color (yellow) was awsome, the performance was bar none for a 600 but I figured it's time to move up..... I would have gotten the 1000RR but it's about the same size as the 600RR so I had to get the Kawasaki... Here she is...

Hey "Traitor"... ;-) ...at least it isnt a Busa.
adamsky27, He probably picked that over the zx-10 because of size. He said he wanted a bigger bike. The new liters are hardly any bigger than our 600s.

Good luck with it. Im not a big fan on the ZX12, it looks a little overweight.

My buddy has a 2001 ZX12R and it's like a couch compared to our RR's very comfortable and very fast! It loves sweepers but gets a little scary in the really tight stuff. They have one of the best exhaust notes ever with a pipe on them. That new front end is the poo too! Nice bike and good luck with it, not too many wheelies ok ;-)

Going from a 600 to a 1200 is a kick in the pants. The RR pulls, but the 12R wants to separate your arms from your wrists....It will make your ******* pucker for sure....I've got just over 1000 miles on her and haven't had to go above 8 grand.. There isn't a need to take it above 8 grand. Haven't had her to the track yet, it can wait still getting used to her.... I will say this, Honda's engine runs alot smoother then the Kawi.... THe 12 has a vibration that will rattle the ol' nut sack at about 4500 RPM's... It's just the way the are....Honda's engine dept. has got the **** going on....

I sat on a lot of bikes before I decided. Didn't like the ergo's of the RC51.... The ones that fit me was the 04 r1 and the ZX12. I decided on the 12 because it seemed to be a little more touring oriented. Nothing against the R1 cause it was a hell of a bike, just not suited for two up as well...
