    This is most likely something that should be made into a forum topic, but since you're from the UK, perhaps you could help me.
    I'm looking into buying a Ninja 250R from a dealer, and I'm wondering if they offer it with a fuel gauge? I've been googling this like mad and reading the forum, but to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

    It's worth checking what the mags say, but IMO, the 6R is faster at the top end - the STR is ggood for about 140 mph or maybe a little more, but is faster up to about 100 - 120 mph with better handling for the corners. THatand the flat torque give it a significant advantage on the street over the ss bikes which don't really produce torque untill the motor is spinning fast.

    If top speed is important, look at the Daytona - the fairing makes all the difference, plus about an extra 18 bhp.

    read something you posted about the STR, that it will piss over most 600ss... curious if you know how it compares to the zx6r because I was first going to get the zx6r but then I fell in love with the STR... just curious
