I also own an R1, which is a bit heavier than the 600rr...but honestly it doesnt feel all that much heavier.

the last 600 I owned was also a yzf600r

And I can definately concur that theres a SIGNIFICANT weight difference there. 20lbs of weight is pretty trivial IMHO when comparing 2 different bikes...80 lbs is another story, haha.

More important than gross weight is how that weight is distributed. I can BET you that you could find a bike that's 20lbs or so heavier yet "feels" lighter due to its COG (center of gravity).

just my .02
