Have you ever ridden a 600 on the street??rz33v4 said:The more the 600s go for race track glory, the more useless they are for street duty. Simply put, a street rider would never use 17,500 revs (or 16,200); only a race track straightaway allows for that kind of usage.
For the street, including serious corner carving, I'll take an SS and its broad spread of torque everytime.
MY QUESTION TO YOU IS THIS.......kingsnake1650 said:Have you ever ridden a 600 on the street??
I agree that for corner carving the torquey bikes are more fun, but the R6 is a blast as well. My 02 R6 redlines at 15500!!!! I have no trouble making use of all of it when riding hard on the street. Granted to do that you have to be really riding the piss out of the bike, but you have to keep in mind that a 600 is much like a 2 stroke bike it makes power off revs. So if you want to keep up with a 1000 RR coming out of a corner you have to go in way hotter and come out with the bike reving atleast 8000 rpms. For my R6 optimal is 13000, It has a drop in power at 15000 and really it peaks at 12500 or so. I still find that the top end of the tach is useful and needed if you want to ride a 600 fast. If its used right I feel that I can ride a 600 faster than a 1000 it just more work.
