If I was looking for a new superbike, I would get an 02' 9R because it fits me. Especially now since Kawasaki has joined the others and made their ZX10R the size of a 600. The 9R had ample leg room, comfy seat, and relatively large fairing. I sat on almost every bike at the motorcycle show and I could hardly tell the difference between the superbikes and the 600's. They are all a tight fit, and I'm not that big.
