Looking at the mid-range line up between Kawasaki and Yamaha, and I have a few questions. I love the look of the FZ6R, but unfortunatley in Australia they only come out in a LAMS version. I'm not interested in un-restricting it, as I want to kep it all above board. So this leads me to the following bikes, FZ6S, FZ8S and XJ6S. My understanding is that the FZ6S has the older R6 engine and is a cracker of a bike for 600cc. I prefer the half faired look and not interested in the fully naked look. Now in 2009 this model was pretty much replaced with the FZ8S, which is current and you can purchse new. So where does the XJ6S (or XJ600 as it is also known as) fit in? From what I can gather they stopped bringing this model in in 2009 and the only brand new model that you can get is the LAMS version. So if I wanted such a beast in this Yammie line up, it is the FZ6S upto 2009, XJ6S upto 2009 or a FZ8S up to current. Does anyone have any comments or reviews of these said bikes? Yes, when I am off my restrictions in a couple of months I will go and ride them all.
