haha....i actually have that problem with my current zx6...my legs are kind of short so i have to hug the gas tank a little harder than most...i saw some motorcycle underpants on motosuperstore and was wondering if those would help with comfort lol.

its not necessarily how fast you can go, its the amount of grunt force that the 1000 has, the torque. is a 600 fast enough... unquestionably, but how fast it is, is not the question. trust me, you will know when you move from a 250 to a 600. the power is highly addictive.

Hug the gas tank? You mean squeezing with your legs or something? You should be more relaxed and not have that problem, no matter how long or short your legs are. I'm guessing you mean you have to "lay" over the tank a bit more than taller dudes. Is that right?

I've considered smacking a dent in the tank where your junk goes; you know, have a place for your shit to sit comfortably. Maybe that would make for a good suggestion to the big four Japanese sportbike makers. LOL.

The Ninja 1000 is a mean machine and I loved it. I wish I could afford it to go along with the ZX6 cause I love them both for diff reason. But to answer the original question, if you can afford the ZX10, GET IT! After riding liter bikes a few times, 600cc machines just don't have anything down low. I mean, that's good in a way because they wont bite until you really get some revs if you are more of a timid rider. However, there's just no denying the rush of accel from a modern liter race replica. You can always neuter the power down on the new one so it's like getting a 600 AND and 1000 in one bike, plus the '11 is barely heavier than the ZX6. Win Win in my book.

Blue '09 ZX-6R: LeoVince Factory slip-on, ServoBuddy, 4300K HIDs, LED marker lights, ebay fender eliminator, ZeroGravity DB windscreen, Woodcraft sliders, ebay "fake pazzo" levers, Amsoil, Driven D3 grips, ProGrip tank pad, Ivans block-offs and PowerCommander V.

Just be careful with your throttle control and you should be good.

Well I can tell you from personal experience:


I use this for this:


and this for this:


I used the 636 on the street for 5 years and while it's fun in the tight twisties, once I got the zx10r, it was more fun for general street riding. I plan to try the zx10r at the track soon too.

Your choice.

The 600 is more chuckable and more agile in traffic, the 1000 has more grunt, so it depends on your riding style, the kind of traffic you'll be in, and where most of your riding will be.

Personally I wouldn't have either if real touring was on the agenda, and I don't much like either for getting through traffic, but each to his own.

For twisties one of each would be nice.
