They didn't change the engine are but the engine wasn't really down in power from anything else and they are pretty reliable. what they did was add all the electronics to much that bike very competitive and even though I haven't read up on where the 600ccmarket is at technology wise I'd be able willing to bet the changes they just did put it ahead of most of the competition. Changed up some weight distribution n some little stuff threw styling in there for the kids blah blah. I wouldn't judge it just because the motor didn't change much, there is no horsepower arms race going on like there is with liter bikes.
I can accept that.. its just a 600. The R6 always made plenty of oomph.. i really enjoyed riding mine.
i'm a bigger guy though, would have been nice to see something similar to a 636 for shits and giggles
i just dont think i see much of a need for all 'em electronics on a 600, unless of course you're tracking
Results from this latest weekend of CVMA in California. Yeah... the r6 is still competitive
