    Kaw has made a ZX6RR for awhile now. They have a ZX6R (636) 636cc for street use with more power/torque and then a ZX6RR for track use since its a 600cc bike and can run in the 600cc class.

    Plus Kaw has been right there with the busa in the past. It's called a ZX12R.

    they never made a street leagl r7 it was for the track only, and you had to be a racer with bucks to have one, and they werent allowed to race cause they were not a production bike.

    18k for a r1 [​IMG] kinda pricy.

    heres my favorite a Honda NR750 was being sold for over 80,000, and they sold everyone they made, I wanted one so bad, but no way did I have 80,000 to spend on a bike. price tag was 60,000 but since they were so rare they went for 80k

    NR750

    one bad ass machine, oval piston and and 8 valves per cyl. if I ever win the lotto I will own one

    aprilias are sick...mille R = teh sex...

    I might go with a gixxer this summer, as my buddy works at a dealership and will get me a good deal on one.

    Regarding the 13.9:1 compression - Overlap. 13.9:1 is static compression. Although, kawi's are supposedly the cleanest running bikes, so I am sure that they are using some other efi trickery.

    NR750 was a kick ass bike for the time... once again for the time.

    a stock 2006 GSX-R750 would hand the NR750 its ass and for only $8999.99 brand new.

    Also keep in mind for the high priced listed track bikes like the R7... well thats why iits so damn high in price. becuase its a track bike. Just like the 350Z JGTC track car I believe is in the $500K range. once again becuase its a track car.

    What's sad with bikes is the fact that the kick ass track bikes of yesterday are nothing special VS the new street bikes of today. once again 2006 GSX-R750 should be right up there with the R7. the new GSX-R750 makes more power and is lighter then the R7 track bike.

    If you want to brag about owning a race bike then great. if you want to have a better bike for 1/4 the cost then buy almost any new bike. sure you wont have braggin rights but hell with the same riders the newer street bikes should be faster on the track.

    NO that is not correct. You did have to have a race pro race license to buy on e but it came in street trim and it could be registered just like any other street bike........thats part of AMA's rules of the production bike.

    A buddy of mine redid an older Gixer stunt bike that had been reborn as a riding bike for him. It came out really nice. It used to be primered with tons of cracks and cuts, but it looks badass.
