sv650 vs. yzf-r6s

so i need to call on everyones experience.
i own and really enjoy my 2006 sv650 great bike fun...
my brother in-law has been really bugging me to buy it.
recently a 2007 yzf-r6s came on the market. i have never riden the rs6.
how do the two bike compare for those of you that have ridden them both or one?
when all is said and done if i sell the sv650 tp my brother in-law he will end up buying the r6s and putting a few hundred bucks in my pocket.
thanks.

R6s' ergos are like my old 600RR. It's a supersport. Totally different from your sv. Power is up top. It'll get uncomfortable sooner than the sv. I think the 07s don't have the inverted forks.

ya... a buddy has an r6s and its nice but WAY too hunched over for me... power is more up top, but not nearly as bad as say a cbr600... but still much worse than say a 919 or a sv650.

keep the sv650, tiz a great bike!

Do you want a super sport bike or not?

That is the only question YOU need to answer.

No one else's opinion matters.

For me if I could only own one bike a super sport bike or a sport touring bike. I'd go with the super sport but that is my taste and my riding style that I enjoy the most.

Best way to do it is to have both. -_-

If you can't do that, then pick one. Race Ready Super Sport. Or sport touring.

R6s is sewing machine smooth....The SV, not so much....Nice inline 600 rush with the Yamaha after you are already breaking the law speed limit wise but the rush goes away really quick as soon as you see red and blues in the mirrors. The SV just rolls on pretty much with the same torque feel untill you turn it back which is too cool. I love my mine for the super simplistic, great running, do everything bike that it is. Throw 350 bucks the SV's way for Traxxions fork drop in fix and keep it. Unless your looking at either a liter sized inline bike or something close to, its twins for me from here on out....Expierience based on the last 1000 or so miles on my 650s.

That'll work........

The Daytona 675's are nice for just a little bit more...



In 1915 T. Roosevelt said, in a speech to the KofC, "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. "

Which SV do you have? The one with clip-ons and a fairing or the one with a handlebar?

What has been done to the SV? Too many variables. Need details.

I Just passed the 1k mile ownership mark with my 01 SV. Gotta say I wish I would have bought one of these bikes a LONG time ago. I've just been having a blast with it. You wont regret keeping it!

That'll work........
