Congrats on the Ninja BP. Awesome choice. The ZX6R is one of the best 600's you can lay your hands down.

We'll leave you alone for a while now so you can enjoy the bike but expecting a detailed pictorial report and a running ownership report on this thread.

Pick up Sport Riding Techniques by Nick Ienatsch. Its an awesome book that'll help you ride safe and enjoy each ride. Highly recommended.

Ride safe mate.

P.S. inevitable question... not mileage or cost but why not an inline four?

@sumitro, wow. i am stunned. you got yourself a Kwacker? So that means you aint coming back to India anytime soon. Enjoy your ride.

@n_aditya, this is not the supersport ZX6R, but the 650R EX. The ZX6R has an inline 4 and has a much more extreme look as well as riding position. The 650R is more of a tourer style bike, much like the Fazer we have in India.

Just one word, Awesome !!!

A few dumb questions though:
1. What was the USP for choosing this and not the R6?
2. Did you undertake any special training for riding a sports bike?
3. How difficult is it to get a riding license compared to a driving license?
