I have just recently bought a scrapped ZZR
Its the American imported one, and yes, its the ZX6
I have put a few touches to it, and here are some piccies
Dont moan about the site, I just threw it together, and added these pics to show my mate, and never got round to doing a proper job ( Thats me all over )
This very bikes has had all the plastics replaced, and some bits to the engine too ( Covers luckily - the engine itself is still ok ), the frame has also been redone with aluminium alloy ( handy when some of my family work with it ) and the entire bike has now lost 130lbs.
Ok, my views on the bike:-
1 - Comfort
Yes, its a Sports Tourer as opposed to the ZXR, however, I have found it to be perhaps the most awful thign I have ever owned, and I have owned a fair number of bikes. I hate it.
2 - Handling
Yes, its fairly good at handling, not on par with pretty much any other 600 I have ridden, so dont expect it to keep to the road like a CBR or GSXR, or the ZXR, but then, they are a different league!
3 - Speed
Ok, its not bad for a quick fisting ( Now now ) down the road, but its not a racer, and anyone should appreciate that, despite its look and feel, it just does not cut it. Oh, and its a fantastic ammoutn of performance to get the front wheel up just enough to look impressive to your mates, and have total control ( Thats a real myth, but you know what I mean! - it never loses its line )
Overall, its a very good bike, has far more accel and speed than anyone could sensibly use, handles just enough to make a good rider stay on the road, oh, and the fual economy is actually fairly good, although as this is the only 600 that I have owned, I can only compare it to completely different bikes, which wont be fair, but I get way over 50 miles to a gallon, and I thrash mine, so I am happy there!
Choice for future
No way... I would Never buy one of these again. However, sports style bikes are not my thing, I must stress that, so the chances are, that I would moan about pretty much any bike in this style, I am very much a sit-up-and-beg rider, and having just sold off my GoldWing before I bought this one, I am judging it by the wing, which is unfair, but now I do have one, I am not going to sell it off, so that says quite a lot in its defense!
