Coming from 10+ years on 2000 ZX6R here is my impression on my "new" R6: - Feels very light, although weighing the same on paper with the Ninja - Feels short and compact, almost like a toy - Cheap. Nearly half the price of those new 300s - Great suspension. Fully adjustable - Amazing brakes. Practically the same one used in R1! - Timeless looks. You could argue they look better than 2006+ models A complaint would be the quality of the transmission. They clunk and clunk ... Also the somewhat cramped leg position (footpegs too high).
