A lot of that article is subjective non sense. I have had several 600's, 750's and 1000 supersports. The author seems obsessed with a 600. The problem with them is the lack of torque. They don't make enough of it to accelerate at a spirited pace under 8-9,000 rpms. So you need to be in the power band to accelerate quickly. And on the the street that means breaking the law. My latest supersport 600 was a 2013 Ninja 636 ZX6R. Which would redline 1st at 78 mph and 2nd at 110 mph. Not a lot of fun riding on the street. I have a v-twin 1000 now, RC51, and it has much more usable power. Of course being on a versys forum, this probably sounds foreign to must of you guys.
