Ok guys I currently have a zx-14 were going to use jsut for drag, I am going to be purchasing another bike to be comfortable on and ride and that has decent power and to just take on longer trips and enjoy.


here is what I have to do, I never realized what a hard this would be..lol


theres a new 07 zx-6r (looks and feels great)

new 06 zx-10r

what honestly would you reccomend for what I want. I didnt know if the 1000 will feel as fast as the 14 and such. I want a little tamer to beat on.. Im a race freak and this will tame me too, and be alot more enjoyable

so if I get the 10r will I be on the 14? should I get the 6?

I am going to go by what the opinions are here.. haha


and I am glad I found the forum, not alot of bashing here. Ill post up the 14 and mods later..

thanks..

well the 14 is perfect for what you want.... if you want tamer, leave the flies in~

if you want comfort, and longer trips.. is a supersport really what you should be looking at?

apart from those two points... I haven't had a chance to sit on the new 6 yet, so I can't really compare..

Hi there friend, my opinion is like this :

ZX-14 - 265kg (fully fuelled)
ZX-10 - 200kg (est fully fuelled)

Long distance touring
zx-14 = very comfy, stable
zx-10 = racy position, very nimble steering

twisties
zx-14 = more weigtht movement thrown at the bike to turn in
zx-10 = easy flick to it's side

Power
zx-14 = 197bhp (169rwhp)
zx-10 = 180+bhp (165+rwhp)

Firstly, i'll ask myself these questions first :-
-want touring?
-want sheer power?
-want comfort?
-want to do track days?
-how big are you?

So my opinion goes, if you want to go for long distance touring/travelling, go for the 14, it's easier for your back, abundant power and more room to protect you from the elements. if zx-10, then for me it has racy position, light streeing, nimble and compact chassis.

Personally, i'll suggest you go for the zx-14...why?.. because you yourself said in dragracing it's betterhalf, so you know how it behaves, it's peak power and handling. You will feel the zx-10 underpowered... Anyway if you take both machines down the road, it all depends on your willpower to handle the straights and twisties. It dosen't mean having smaller/bigger cc's will make you arrive at your destination sooner, it's how you become one with it that counts.

p/s haven't ridden the new zx-6 but it looks nasty....

Just my 2 cents....................:smile

I know as far as being comfortable I like sitting on the 10 better because I dont feel like im tensed up. Im more outstretched on it. The 6 is alright but takes alittle getting used to since im taller but it is still pretty comfortable.
