hi fellow BSCB members...took the 600rr up to Sea to Sky today for a serious rip and all i can say is that this bike handles incredibly well beyond belief. going into the corners from turn to turn was effortless. having ridden my '03 gixxer 600 for the past couple of months, there is huge difference between the two bikes. the only thing lacking on the 600rr is the torque under 10K rpm's, i would have to say the gixxer kicks butt in that department, with crazy-ass torque at the turn of the throttle. but for everything else, the 600rr is simply incredible. honda has really outdone themselves with the unit pro-link swingarm. no regrets whatsover about buying this bike even with its hefty pricetag. i took some pics with factory_rider and somehow a guy with a yellow F4i appears in the pics, trying to fool us saying it was a yellow 600rr............just kidding, it's my buddie's bike and we're tirelessly trying to convince him to buy a yellow 600rr. here are the pics, enjoy!!!
