Hey you made the right choice a Yamaha R6 is on of the best bikes available in the market now! The Yamaha R6 is raw power, But its not smooth as compared to the CBR. A close friend of mine has a Honda CBR 600RR 2007.
I know some people think 1000CC and hayabusas are the best.:S But on a 600cc the cornering is better,Fun and more safe If you go to see even in the races people use 600 cc bikes
Imm getting myself a bike soon maybe a second hand CBR or R6
Good luck...have fun.

You're right Studboy_441, CBR is a little bit smooth compared to R6, well most of the guys out here have conceeded that CBR is a user friendly sportsbike compared to the R6 (ride height, handling and parts are easy to get). Actually 600ccs or Midrange bike are very popular out here compared to the liter bike, because it can be considered a good starter sportbike for anovice (that's aside from honda S4 standard bike) and beside we don't have enough road system to cater the higher displacement bike, I mean we have the road but it's not as long as in the States where you can really push the bike to the limit. On the other hand like most of the 600cc users, they tend to upgrade to higher displacement once they're use to the 600cc, like me maybe in one or two years time I'm planning to get a 1000cc bike maybe a GSXR or R1 but that can wait let me enjoy the R6 first.

I am sure you could fine one in Bangalore without much difficulty for sure. Bangalore has some significant number of SBKs and people are known to upgrade much faster. Check out with som members here who own SBKs down South and pay a visit to mechanics who service such bikes.
For this budget you can look for a 2005 or older R6.

Wow Shack. Thats a nice lookin R6. A layman's query - What are the pro's of a steel braided brake line?

The SBK club pics are nice too. I can imagine how loud it would get when all those bikes are revved at the same time. Would wake up even Satan in hell I'm sure.

Have fun and ride safe dude.

It reduces the braking distance and increase effeciency of the calipers (meaning more mechanical advantage), and the expansion of the line tends to be at minimum thus requiring less force to operate at their maximum. Also, unlike rubber hose (which is more squishy) the brake lever feels stays firm at all times.

By the way here's some of our pic during our ride in various places

OOOOOHHHHH man, the Honda SF brings back good memories, I had a CB400 SF Project Big 1, awesome fun for a 400cc, could push it to the max without the fear of getting seriously hurt, & it was bloody loud with an Akrapovic can.....have fun Shakatak & ride safe.

I just rode a friends black '07 R6 and found it extremely uncomfortable. There was a lot of strain on my wrists. Do you experience that? How tall are you?
