Along the same lines as the GSXR/Katana type deals...the 600R is more comfortable, and basically the same bike as the R6..just not quite as aggressive styling, etc.

I don't know. Something about it just doesn't click with me. The front end looks a little old style.

Exactly my thoughts. That's not even retro, it's a page out of 1989.

I'm with you. In fact all 2004's are reduced right now, good time to buy with interest rates as low as they are.

I believe that is a rear (red) reflector!

The horrid part is the old school headlight setup!

EDIT - btw, for the sort of bike it is, I think the Honda F4i would be a far better option.

At least it looks modern, this is just so damn ugly
