    Going from a 600 to a liter bike is a big change. Unless the guy you work with is good, he will never be able to get that bike to live up to its potential. That is the funny thing. I have been riding street bikes for 13 years and the one thing that remains consistant is that the vast majority of people that I come into contact with have no idea how to ride and never will.

    Nice kill. Make sure to rub it in.

    06 R6 will run 10's with a decent rider...you definately beat the rider and not the bike! Good kill though.

    a R6 will run 10s with a damn good rider. i have a 03 R6 and bikes arent easy to launch. 90% of riders wont be able to push a stock R6 into the 10s.

    No kidding. Most riders have a hard time breaking into the 12's much less 10's. Most people that are seen on sport bikes have no idea how to use them.

    it should be an easy 10sec bike
    about 5 years ago i had an older 97 suzuki gsxr and my first time at a track period i gor a 10.92. i got a bad launch, hit read line and forgot to close the visor of my helmet(i reached up and shut it going down the track.) i was only 18 and had the bike 3 months. granted i rode for a long time before but still older bike with 88 hp and a 230lb rider with mistakes.

    Friend has a stock 05 600RR and it ran 11.2 first time out, then 10.90 second time out. He isn't a pro rider at all, first bike he has ever owned. I spanked it on a 30 kick by about 6 cars though! He was pissed.

    That guy obviously wasn't yet used to his R6, that thing makes more hp than my 2000 RC-51 which is a liter bike and I think it is somewhere around 400 pounds it also revs to like 15500 rpm's. So 400 pounds to 127 horses that should be able to easily take out any vette or viper. If you have never ridden it is insane how fast those things can go, they literaly will try to pull you off there is that much power.

    600cc sportbikes arent much of a race for a Viper or a Vette on the highway. most 600s will top out around 155-160. Liter bikes on the other hand... and also it doesnt matter how much power any given bike makes if the rider is a squid and cant ride. ive seen people on 600s take out Liter bikes without a problem, twisties and strip.

    Anyone that thinks that newer 600's aren't much of a race for a vette or viper on the highway is completely ignorant. Any 600 sportbike (2002 or newer) will absolutely devastate any stock vette or viper made until its top speed is reached. from even a 50 kick, a newer sport bike will rape any stock vette or viper on a highway roll....until 150 or so.
