So hey guys, I finally got my dream bike which is ZX6R, I want the bike but at first insurance said NO due to my age and experience(I am 17 LOL), so my friends suggest me get a sport touring, which is sporty enough but let insurance classify it to “Touring”. So what i am looking for at that time is Ninja 1000( I am a kawasaki fan), and i dont really into street bike either, but due to engine size insurance charge me 9700 Canadian dollars! And I dont want that weak 650cc twin either... but luck for me i found a insurance does’t care about type of bike, so i asked if i can insure a super sport, they said okay, just lemme know engine size. And since 636cc is below 750cc, I got a okay price for me, but to most of you that might be too high, but for a 17-years-old, it is actually not bad, but i got work even harder lol.
WR--I know the ZX6R is extremely sharp, I just bought a 2019 myself but, I will tell you, the Ninja 650 is a phenomenal bike (I traded my 2013 in for the ZX6R), and 0-60, that bike is almost as fast as the ZX.
It is the 60-100 which I really wouldn't recommend anyway. The 650 is actually a bit more comfortable than the ZX due to the nice V-shape frame and positioning of the handlebars, the seat and is great for long rides. I used mine for commuting (76 miles round trip to and from work or about 45 min each way). I had 33k miles on it before I traded it in.
Once I did some minor customization's such as rear fender removal kit, integrated tail light and blinkers, the bike was sharp as hell plus I actually really liked the placement of the exhaust on the 650 vs the 1000 and even my ZX which I will replace at some point and remove the rear fender assembly too.
The 650 is also a great bike for a new or young rider. If you haven't purchased your bike, you may want to still look into the 650.
