What sells a 600?
When I bought my 600RR I was looking for good handling, an engine with streetable charistics, reasonably comfy riding position, good build quality.
I think I got all that with my slightly used Pearl 07. Plus I got a steal of a deal, and the extended warranty was just icing on the cake.
I was at S+S Kawie, Suz, Honda, in Clarksville, a fairly large bike shop. They sell a lot of sportbikes. I asked the salesman about how the 600's sold last year. Everything I read said the Honda was the lightest, very good engine, etc. Supposidly the the 600 to get in 07. But the salesman said they sold more Gixxers. I asked why. He said because the guys that buy them, like how the Suzuki's turnsignals were integrated into the mirrors. That just blew me away that people (kids) are that shallow. He also said something about the rear fender/plate holder on the Suzi is preferable.... but I was still reeling from how one bike outsold the other because of turn signals, I couldn't remember what he said about the rear end. Unbelieveable.
