Hey everyone, I currently own a Ducati 695 monster, I miss a sportbike and i've now been given the opportunity to either pick up a 2007 Yamaha R6 S or 2007 Yamaha R6. I would like your adivce and assistance on which bike to get. I just want to see if i'm leading myself in the right direction. From what i've read i've found out that the R6 is very low on power until you reach higher RPM's but the R6 S is much better in the low end and mid range. What I would like to know is which year was the year the R6 S came out and on what original R6 model is is based on. I consider myself more a street rider then a "track day" rider. I will be taking the bike to mission but only for some fun friday night drag racing (sorry all you corner junkies...) However, I still want the raw feel of a sportbike and i'm leaning towards more the R6S rather then the R6 since it seems more track oriented. The riding position is a little more agressive on the R6 and it seems much tighter and smaller then the R6S which I don't like. What i'm trying to get at is, which bike is better for the street and is the R6S still a true raw sportbike!
