Summary:

This makes you work for it, but you get the effort back 10 fold!

Faults:

Front tyre - keep it at the right pressure to stop scalloping!!! My fault.

General Comments:

It's the ZX6RR, what a cracker. A blast to ride and very nimble (better than my RGV250). The suspension is better than the ZX6R (636) (03-04) as it doesn't break your balls on the little bumps. The 600 cranks out the tunes and sounds totally great!! You won't be disappointed.

Loved it so much I brought it with me to Holland when I moved here!! (maybe I have lost it) Worth the effort, I know the bike now and really get a buzz taking it out. Waiting for summer and the German Autobahns!!!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
