I swear the RR would do 70 in 1st, 110 in 2nd, 135 in 3rd, 150 in 4th, 170 in 5th and 185 in 6th, honestly no bs! 0-60 in less than 3 seconds, the dude with the R1 in here knows what I'm screaming guaranteed!
if u mean me then i did . show me where i can host a pic, and ill show u what my R1 looks like now. still rollin my R6 tho.

none of the 600's will touch 170... high 150's maybe, low 160's if you got a really good motor and weight like 120 lbs full tuck

i wouldn't say that... the new 600's are the most competitive class out there in racing, and now a days are the exact same bike as the 1000's with just a little less motor... i wouldn't suggest anyone start on a new 600

What should they start on then a ninja 250. Think they know how to ride and step up from a slow ass 2 cylinder bike to a inline 4. 600's are way safer and more stable then any 250 or 500 cc bike you can buy here in the states. Now over seas the aprilla's are pretty bad but you don't see a whole lot of them around here being a 2 stroke!

you couldn't be more wrong

thats exactly what they should do, start on a 250... you have sooooo much room for error on that thing you'd have to be looking for trouble to screw up... but even someone with good intentions could get into trouble fast on a new 600

i "started" on a 1995 cbr600 which i think is the absolute most anyone should start on, but i got the bare basics down in a parking lot on a old 81' CB450... do i know people that have started on a brand new 600+ cc bike and survived? yes... have any of them done it with out dropping it atleast once? no... its not only the safety thing, but why not get your newbie mistakes out of the way on a not perfect 250 or older 600 instead of on a brand new shiney soon to no longer be mint condition bike off the showroom floor

also if you start on a brand new 600, those thing's potential is so far out of a beginners reach that you won't learn nearly as much, since your riding in "survival mode" all the time, where as on a 250 or older 600 you can be pushing the bike and yourself so much closer to your limits with out so much fear of the bike punishing you and thats how you learn... thats why i went back to a 600 for the track and racing, sure i can ride my 1000 on the track just fine but i'm not going absolute 100%, i think i'll get alot better by riding the piss out of a 600

besides the market for a 250 or used 600 is HUGE, the biggest market for selling a bike in my opinion, so if you think you've out grown it after a month of riding it i bet you can get your money and then some out of it with less than a week's ad in the paper... but as for trying to sell a nearly new 600, not going to happen unless your willing to take a instantaneous 2,000$ depreciation hit, and more than that if you dropped it at all


how did we get on this anyways, as for how fast i'll know for sure, taking out my buddies GPS unit tomorrow on some straights if its not raining

I was just stating the way I felt. I personally rode my buddies fzr 600 after I had ridden my 900 RR for about 7 thousand miles. I was scared to death on the fzr. Felt like I was riding on 10 speed tires!

You shouldn't be scared on your first bike. That's why most of the mistakes that gets newbies killed happen. Just think, a newbie comes up on a car too fast and grabs a handful of brake, he'll flip it. Newbie let's out the clutch a little too fast and the bike takes off...he turn the throttle more when he get's jerked back. He ends up looping it.

Those same situations won't end as badly on a 250 as they would on a 600.

Who says you have to be scared to respect the power of a motorcycle?

The way I see it is some people just have more brains than others. Some people just don't belong a bike either.

Fastest I've been was a speedo indicated 155-160ish on a 96' Honda VFR750, totally stock. I'm guessing a touch over 145 rear world at best. Still plenty darn fast!

I sold that bike, and I'm actually considering buying an older VF500F(500cc V-four sport bike) to learn all over again on, to improve upon what I've got now, that when when I can afford to own a newer bike I'll have an even better idea of what I'm doing. Top speed is a thrill, but carving through corners at 100mph plus is even better........cant wait till I can drag my knees.........and better yet, do it without fear

~90mph on a dirt road riding my '92 CR250 when I had it. 20mph cross wind made it kind of hairy. I got a '95 XR600 today, but have to sort out the carb before any speed runs.

I have a 2001 ZX-9R and had it at 178 on the speedo, so I am guessing it was actually about 160ish or so. Tell ya what tho, when the little dashed line on the road turns in to one solid one cause of speed it is a great feelin. What a rush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
