Buddy that's a really nice bike. Infact it's one of my favorite bike. It's very good when it comes to performance, handling, styling. All together complete sports bike.

You gonna love it, if you buy this one.

Buddy both the bikes are really good and good performers as well. But when it comes to looks, i like R6 far better than the CBR600 (that's my personal opinion).

one of friend did took a TD of both the bikes, according to him he found 600RR bit cramped. And also according to him both the bikes were equally powerful. It all depends whether you are a Honda or Yamaha person.

Also i was reading online about R6 and there it said:
Yamaha R6 has additional features like programmable shift light, analog tachometer, digital speedometer, odometer, water temp gauge, low fuel, turn signals, lights for neutral and high beam and more. Apart from those, it includes a built-in lap timer that can be controlled by a right handlebar switch. Its sharp and crisp lines give it a dashing look while moving with extremely fast speed.

oh nice
what are you after
your back in india or what?
I am still in US but will be in India within few months. But my younger brother is in India and has just finished his Engineering. So the bike is basically for him.

And we are looking for something in 150-220cc range. A bike that has nice handling, average FE, LOOKS and good performer.

I have another thread going on for my bike search

The price difference between 150 and 180 is around 3-4K only.

Actually i was in hostel for around 10 years, i was in 2n grade when i went to hostel, then for 2 years i was with my parents for my 11th and 12th. After that i went to pune and then came to US. So we are kinda used to. But ya this time it has been almost 4 years i haven't seen them.

This is my 5th year in US. And i usually talk to them every day an on weekends we talk on skype. So they can see me and i can see them. That's all buddy. So this year i am definitely going to India.

What about you? any plans for India?
