Hey guys recently sold my learner bike and now I'm in the market for a 600, I love the look and ride of the R6 and wanted to get your opinions on the 2008 and 2009 models (if there's much difference, i.e. maintenance, range and lasting factor- suppose thats personal though)...it'd be really appreciated. I test rode the 2008 model twice now and absolutely love it(this one is out of warranty and clocked 6,500km - asking $12,500 on the road), albeit it is my first bike ridden bigger than a 250, so i may be biased. What I found was the bike really leans forward and my head almost feels its just above and before the speedo, though its nice and tall for my 6'4" 90kg frame, legs fit snuggly under the tank. I'm yet to try the other bikes from the big4 but feel strangely like this one is it, or should I be patient and try them all? ALSO, I know someone who is selling a Red/White 2009 R6 with 254km on it and asking for $14,700 with RWC and a years rego...Do you think this is reasonable? CHEERS!
