The new R6 will be announced next month if you want to wait.

My 2016 RSV4 has been pretty good so far, just minor issues (needed software update, 10 minute clutch pull rod seal leak fix). The big thing about the V4 engine people don't realize is that you need to check the valves early as they will be fully seated within 3000-4000 street miles. Then every you can possible stretch it to 12000 after. If you track it, every 1200 miles. That's why you hear stories of dropping valves on the V4. Most people don't check them when they should.

IMHO, it's a good idea to always check valves early on on any high performance bike. Protect your investment.

You know? I always said it would the RSV4 for the next bike, but after the experience, I decided I need Japaneese for the mileage I put on my bikes (8k per season).

Didn't know about the R6, but I am happy with the GSXR 750. Got 0% financing too.
