  • Test ride.....ZX-6R aka 636

    My buddy finally broke in his 03' Silver ZX-6R 636 enough for me to ride it. I rode it on some good back roads for about 30 minutes.

    Here we go........smiley style.

    Bottom end -
    Mid Range -
    Top End -

    I am super spoiled by TL1000R grunt.

    Suspension - Point and shoot. This bike can rail!!!


    Those front brakes are awesome!!

    The bike is super light and nimble and at the same time really twitchy -

    Its really compact and the ergo's are not that bad. - :

    It looks -

    Overall a super cool bike......I'd never buy one, maybe for a track tool. The new 600's are so damn peaky. Where are those extra 36cc?? :

    So for a big feller like myself I need a big bike. I can tell you why they make liter (v-twin) sportbikes........

      I was afraid there for a second 414...
      you are so right, that kick in the ass during the last 2k is so not what riding is about.
      Coming out of a corner WOT at 6,000 is where it's at Nothing does that better than a TLR.

          Actually for a 600 they do have some low end and torque More than other 600s. Nothing compared to a 1 litre v-twin, but then that is comparing apples to oranges. How about it pulls as hard down low compared to 750's not too long ago. And you are right those last 5k rpm (it redlines at 15.5k) or so.... hold on tight.

          Everything else I agree with except the twitchy part. Ours doesnt feel twitcy at all. Does your friend have the suspension set up at all?

          and for the voyeurs... her 636

                  I love the looks of the new Ninja's but the ergo's just don't work for me. Everytime I sit on one it feels like someone kicked me in the balls. There must be something about the shape of the seat or tank that doesn't agree with me. The older Kawi's are the same way.

                      I've never had the pleasure of riding one, but I probably wouldn't even fit on it.....(6'5"/260)
