I don't know which one I want to buy!!! I want to see what other peoples opinon is on it. Post up Yay or Nay Pro's vs Con's with why you picked the one that you picked. Z and James you better put in your
I have read on kawasaki.com that the 09's are 20lbs lighter!!! I'm leaning more towards the 09 monster and adding the 08's rims on it (the green ones) so it would be all black with a green "M" on the left and right fairings with a green seat, double bubble, and green rims w/ the green HID lights.......Sound Good?
I agree with Zmoe. The 09 ZX6 R is 100% ALL NEW. This bike is going to blow the fairings off all the other I4 600's on the market now dues to the changes Kawasaki has made. Not only is she 20 lbs lighter but she is smaller in over all size and has quite a bit more horsepower compared to other years. There have been chassis changes. As I just said the bike is 100% new over it's predecessors.
Why would you want that for the street? When Kawasaki says "Race ready. Street legal ............... barely." they mean it. Yes the bike is street legal but it was (and always has been) built for racing or aggressive track riding. Not for putting around on the street or the occasional little group ride. You will not even come close to using the power or cornering that bike is capable of on the street. Testers for the new 09 have rated it ALREADY at the top of the 600 class and said for a 600 they felt the bike was laughing at them during their test rides. No test rider has ever boasted that about a 600 before. Especially even before putting in on a track. Yeah she's stunningly gorgeous and from what the testers have said rides amazing but it's really a serious waste a money to buy a bike like her just to putt around on the street.
All that else aside. Mechanically and Specs wise .................. the 09 is going to be the best (so far) year. All new and 100 times better then the previous zed years.

I'm not a fast guy, and my track bike is old (2003 600RR). It doesn't have a slipper clutch, down on horse power, and weights as much as a tank (same weight as the 02-05 F4i). I can hold my own on any track against bigger, faster, lighter bikes any day. So whenever I buy a bike, it's usually because of a good deal and how I like the looks of it. The specs are nothing more than a bunch of numbers to me. So I'd say get one that you can afford, and that it will give you an ear-to-ear grin whenever you get on it. I know I get that stupid grin whenever I get on my old 600RR or my little 250. --->
