Hello, I am upgrading (early) to an '05 600RR, after riding for 6 months (yes, I know the law...!). I am scraping pegs all day long on my VTR250, and to be honest, am really over the poor power. While the VTR is an excellent handling bike, it is really a beginner bike, and does not really lend itself at all to aggresive riding! I am not a hoon rider, and have clocked 5k mainly on long twisty rides. I regret buying the VTR, and shoud have bought a sports. Now, I dont want to sell my bike for another 250 sports, so I have to "wing it" a little. I am tossing up between the Kawasaki ZX-6R (or RR) and the Honda CBR600RR. I hear the CBR600RR has more manageable power below 9,000rpm and has a lot better handling, so this may suit my lesser experience to begin with. If you recommend the Kawasaki please advise if you recommend the ZX-6RR over the ZX-6R model. Any thoughts? (except trying to discourage my decision to by a bigger bike now!) PS: My forum question is simply to decide between ZX-6 or CBR6; would greatly appreciate advice from those who have experienced either/or.
