I would go with the Ninja 600. I hit a 750+ lb feral hog with mine at 100+MPH, a head-on for both of us, and I came out missing the left foot peg, leaving a dangling shifter, but kept it going and got home on it that night. I fixed it and two weeks later rode it from West Texas to the Dragon (1,450 miles--KR rally) and back and had a blast. Mine was an older zxr600 in persimmon red, with a bit of custom flat black paint after the hog meeting. Outstanding bike though. And the ZZR1200 I got later, well, the only time I've moved faster was with Southwest Airlines.

Nice....LOL

Since Junker mentioned the Daytona, I had another look at the 675R. I have to admit, I am kind of now infatuated with it. Looks so sweet in white and the inline 3 cylinder sounds real good.
I have narrowed the choices down between the Ninja, the R6 and the Daytona 675R. Gonna have to get some seat time in each of these bikes to make the right choice for me.

So due to insurance wanting to rape me on anything super sport-ish, for being only my second year riding, I decided to hang off on buying one until I have some more licensed years under my belt.


That being said, I ended up buying a Pearl white 2009 Honda VFR800 with the white powder coated wheels. Such a good looking bike with such a beautiful exhaust note. Like a Small block Chevy V8 sound with the right exhaust cans.


Looks identical to this one here in the Youtube Vid.
