Default Sport bike class. whats in the same class as the Yamaha FZ6?

I sat on a Yamaha FZ6 and I liked the seating positon not to mention the affordability.The Ninja 650R is in the same class?What else would be? I dont think Honda has a bike in the class or am I wrong?The Honda CBR600 isnt in the same class.THe CBR600RR is nearly a $10K bike. The FZ6 and 650r are much less. They have a riding position thats more upright and they are a more tamed version of the CBR600 or say a zzr600

The FZ6 is a standerd style bike. It's like a sportbike with less of a fairing, a slightly detuned engine, usually gearing is a little different, and a more upright riding position. These are more so commuter bikes than they are performance bikes.The ninja 650r is a sport bike, so it'll sit you a little more hunched over. In my opinion, the 650r is somewhere between sport and standerd, but i think it's subjective.Similar bikes to the FZ6 would be the Suzuki GS500F, Kawasaki Versys, Suzuki sv650 to name a few.If you just like the styling, a step up in performance would be a"streetfighter"or"naked"style (basically a sport bike with no fairing). Examples would be the Triumph Speed triple (and street triple), Kawasaki Z1000 and all Buell bikes.BTW. you are right about the CBR's and ZZR's. They are NOT in the same class. They're aimed at a whole different market.

Just get a CBR600RR and you are beyond that class and will have more fun, too. ------
