I briefly skimmed through the 2005 600cc shootout and discovered that the writers are not all that happy with the new R6. They say the suspension is WAY too stiff and the fuel injection is too choppy. After putting 600 miles on my bike (prior to reading this article), I was thinking the same thing. They like the power of the bike up top, but they say mid range is lacking. They also say it doesn't really enter or exit corners all that great, but it's extremely stable mid-corner. I still need to go through my suspension to see if I can set it up to make me happy, but I'm so light that I don't know if that will be possible. I also plan on remapping the fuel injection to hopefully smooth it out a bit, even if that means cutting down on power. I'd rather have it smooth for getting out of corners than have the top end. How often will I really use the top end anyway?
