The biggest difference from what I can tell will be seating position and styling. The FZ6 is a naked sport bike and has a little higher bar position and possibly a little lower peg position. I think the FZ6 would be more comfortable on longer rides personally. The styling is quite different so it depends some on whether you like the naked look or the full fairing look. Either will be an excellent bike.

Are you a newbie? If you are, stay away from the Gixxer. You can't handle the Gixxer. It doesn't care how much you weigh or how tall you are, neither does your athleticism or physical strength come into play. It doesn't even matter how"careful"you PROMISE to be.One little mistake and it will send you onto your butt.But here you go:FZ6- faster than a squid-powered Gixxer, more comfortable on longer trips, better gas mileage, lower price, lower insurance costs.GSX-R600- More expensive, racebike requiring racebike skills, very fast in the right hands, deathtrap to a new rider, everyone and their brother has one, no originality.
