Gotcha, but I was under the impression 600rrs were decent? What makes them worse than the others?

When you're talking about race rep bikes, you're splitting hairs.

Kawasaki makes more power
Yamaha sucks under 10k rpms
The GSXR and CBR are great bikes, they're just kinda bland...nothing really stands out.
90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

The CBR600RR handles great and has decent low and midrange power for the street, but falls behind most of the other 600's at higher speeds/rpm's (in stock tune). The Kawi and GSX-R engines have consistently ranked higher than the rest of the inline 4's in magazine shootouts since at least 2004. For strictly street riding, any of the 600's with efi are a good choice, it's mainly just a matter of which bike fits you comfortably. The R6 engine has been weak at low to mid rpm for a long time, but if you can keep the rpm's and cornering speed up, they won't be left too far behind any other bike on the streets. For me the ZX and GSX-R feels like I am sitting "in" the bike (similar to the feel of a Katana), the R6 and CBR I feel like I am sitting "on" the bike, positioned up way too high to be comfortable.
