So I was talking to an aquaintance yesterday (and a fellow LEO who should know better) and told him that I just got my "new" 650R. He immediately said that I shouldn't have gotten one because they are "really slow compared to a GSXR 600 or R6". Granted he rides a GSXR1000 but my thoughts are this. According to the specs I have seen a stock 650R does 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. Sure a liter bike might do it in 3 or a shade under but really 3.8 seconds is faster than all but the most expensive sports cars in the world. Saying a 650R is slow compared to a GSXR600 to me is like saying a 747 is slow compared to a F18. Sure 565 mph is slower that 800 but it's still pretty dang fast! Not to mention that I enjoy life (usually anyways) and have no desire to accelerate my demise by riding at sub-sonic speeds. Am I the only one who feels this way?
