What's up everybody. I currently own a 2019 Z650 and I like it a lot but I feel like I want a bit more in terms of power. I've been looking around, and it seems that the ZX6R is the best value for my money in terms of a middleweight sportsbike. Anyone rode a ZX6R? How does it compare in terms of comfort, and power to the Zed650? I'm 6' 1 and 180 lb, and the Z650 fits me perfectly.

The ZX6R looks to be quite uncomfortable compared to the Z650!
If you plan to daily it - Z650
Weekend / track rides - ZX6R!

I've been wanting to do the same comes down to a Supersport vs not I can keep up with my buddys on their cbr600r's till about 70 then from there they start to pull away. Low end torque though on the z650 has a little more punch 0 to 30 then some Supersports around the same cc's making it zippy out of corning from my experience.

Hmmm...spoke to the guy I bought the 650 from and now I'm considering the Z900 or the Ninja 1000SX, which is basically the Z1000 that was brought over from the European market.

Z650/ninja650/z900/z1000/ninja1000 put you in upright position, they are not supersport bikes.
Zx6r/Zx10r have forward/lower bar position, race style - if you are not used to rest your belly on the tank, you will feel uncomfortable riding them.

Almost 100% certain I’m going to get the 2019 ZX6R, the standard is on sale for $7800 and KRT ABS is $9300 here.
