the 02 6r is carb'd.....i dont think kawi went injected until 03 but the 05 06 zzr600's are carbd if im correct..a 6e is more of a sport touring bike.....the 6r is a more full on style sport bike...f you are just wanting a bike to ride to ride and dont care about the overall performance aspect get a 6e.....if you want something sporty and better performance get a 6r

I had the E and now I have the 05 ZZR, and they are both great bikes, and I do not think you would go wrong with either.
The Zx6e is more comfortable (for you and the passenger) and more forgiving for a new rider. If you are used to 250's this would probably be a good transition bike that would allow you to ride tons in comfort with dramatic improvements in performance and power over the 250. I also found it to be easier to work on.

That having been said, I absolutely love my zzr, and could not go back. I have taken it to the track and to the twisties, and it definetely gets the heart going. Better acceleration, better handling from a sport perspective (but definetely less comfortable). Tons of aftermarket parts. And in my opinion, I think it has a great look (dont like radical bikes too much)

And the wife will get used to it... eventually:D

Mostly right, all zx6e's are carb'd
Upto 2002 6R's were carb'd, 03+ are fuel injected.
05-07 ZZR600 are also carb'd, not fuel injected.
