Nearly everything

I can't get the link to work but if you go to Yamaha's site, click products then choose the R6. Then on the left click specifications and from there you can compare the R6 to the 600R. Take a look at the specs. Heres the link to Yammy's home page www.yamaha-motor.com/

The R6 is a much more race oriented bike while the 600R is much more tame and better suited for daily street riding.

Hope that helps.

The R6 looks way hotter if you're gonna be pimping parking lots.

Hey, I had a YZF600R Thundercat when I lived in Japan, and I still think it's a great bike! It doesn't look as cool, or handle quite as well as the R6, but it's still a great all around bike. Light years ahead of the Can-O-tuna anyway.

i used to have a 96 yzf600r and I liked it a lot. I think the 94 yzf600r won supersport when it first came out too.

It's a pretty heavy bike and is a pig in the parking lot. it is pretty easy to learn on as a beginner bike and it has decent power, i'd estimate at least 85hp at the wheels.

It sucks that yamaha hasn't upgraded the yzf600 to compete with the likes of the f4i or sv650/bandits...
