And everyone arguing about the 1000 vs. 600 and which one is faster, you're wasting your time arguing. Some of the post's I just read really makes me question if some of you have even been to a track or just have common sense when it comes to this.
Someone could get on a 1000 and go faster on a track than if they were riding a 600. And vise versa. Plus, when you guys constantly are talking about track speed, you don't make any sense. "I bet the 675R is faster on a technical track with small straight's than a 1000". Really? Yes that is true if we are talking about stock form, but you are acting like we are comparing these bike's completely decked out...
Yes, 600's are better on a track for a Novice/Intermediate because it teaches them to hit the apex's better and corner speed. On a liter bike you can be lazier with it on the track because you can catch up to people from the power on straights (I'm not talking racing here).
But since 99% of people don't compete with stock bike's, anyone saying 600's are faster than 1000's on track is wrong. Look at AMA/WERA/CCS/etc.
If were talking about the track here, get a 1000 if you can put lot's of cash into it because it will handle like a 600, but pull like a train
And direct word's Jason DiSalvo told me, "Both classes of bikes have a different style of riding; 1000's are more point and shoot style, while 600's you can keep a higher corner speed so you exit at a faster speed." Something like that haha.
