It's funny that the "little" bike won again with the fasted lap. This is no fluke, since the R6 did it last year. See, on a tight track, ie, similar to THE STREET, all that power means nothing and is actually a handicap. It's also amazing that all the new 600's have as much staight-line speed as liter bikes of not that long ago. MY new 636 rocks. Man, these things are beating GSXR 750's in superstock trim. Liter-bike owners who do 99% of their sport riding on the streets (like we all do, really) have wasted their money. I saved big by getting the 636, and plan to use the xtra $$$$ to get a steering damper and a top-notch shock, which is FAR more important than HP. HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!
