depends on experience and what you want from it... you want to go faster go with the R1 you want super handling in the twisties the R6 might be your best bet...... sit on em both and make a decision based on the amount of time you been riding...!
I feel you should get what you want and respect the bike you get, I started riding on a liter last year, I keep thinking about what the bike can do and worked my way up. But Im not like other people, other people think im nuts
i understand the difference i have read the "stuff for newbies" post, in the end i am going to pick up the R6. i needed another opinion one that wasnst from a family memeber telling me i am going to die, even if i do ride responsibly. i do appreciate other opionions. any way i look forward to riding this summer with anyone who may be in the TC area.
