      I went from a CBR500r, to 600rr, and then FZ09, so those are the only videos I'd have. I haven't been able to ride the FZ07 - buy people love it, and I had thought about buying it before I scored a deal on the FZ09

      WebbyRides fzo7 ๐Ÿ˜ Iโ€™m watching vids on it now it looks like an exact fit for what Iโ€™m needing. You got any videos on this bike? Or the fz 09

      WebbyRides In reply to WebbyRides

      No problem at all. I think the Fz07 is great. There are 3 types of bikes: 1) slow bike, safe, easy to grow out, 2) maybe too much for a beginner but fun for experienced riders, and 3) not for beginners, experienced only

      The fz07 falls into that second camp. It's a lot for a beginner, but I could get off the FZ09, onto the fz07, and still have a ton of fun.

      Also, I have taken my FZ09 down roads no supersport would EVER go down. I would never trade it and go back to a 600 again.

      OMG thank you for calling out the 500R for a terrible seat - once I get moving for a bit it's a stop per hour to let me ass re-calibrate.

      If you hate the 500r just wait until you sit on any sport bike for 2 hours. Horrible for the road.

      I have been in love with powerful naked bikes. An fz09 will beat any 600cc bike until 200km/h (125mph).

      Hahaha Toyota Corolla vs NASCAR, that line was funny!! Awesome comparison for someone like me who has been bitten by the motorcycle bug and is thinking of starting out this wonderful hobby. I always wondered why the big difference in sound between the 500 and 600 and you explained that very well. I am trying to make myself not like the 600rr so much so I can go towards something else for a beginner bike but god I just canโ€™t. 600RR is just so beautiful amd sounds fantastic and is the closest thing to a litre bike. To be honest I think a 600 will be all I will ever need as a bike unless I want to change my riding style from sports bikes to cruisers. Awesome video man I subscribed to your channel for a few weeks now and your content is good.

      Thanks for the comment and the subscription!

      The 600rr is a ton of fun, but not suited for more than an hour. It's a race replica, so they aren't meant to be ridden across country (you CAN, but I don't think you'd enjoy it). I would recommend you look at a naked bike. A lot are 4 cylinders so you get the noise you're looking for, but the seating is better for long rides.

      For instance, this morning I rode 400km, which took 4.5 hours. I got to my destination and I could keep going if I wanted. On my 600rr I did this same trip and when I got here I wanted to sell the 600 right away. My wrist hurt, I got hip cramps, and my neck was killing me.

      On my naked bike I can (and have) ride for 5 hours non stop, take a break, and do another 4 or 5.

      Take a look at Suzuki and Honda. The Honda 650 models are all 4 cylinders, are loud as hell, and you sit in a better position than sport bikes, but everyone on the street won't know any difference since they look the same.

      I drove the 2015 CBR500R for a year as my first bike! thinking to upgrade to Cbr600rr. Yes or NO

    • WebbyRides
      WebbyRides In reply to Jaffar k

      That's good that you're already calling around.

      What I'd do, and you may look foolish but it's worth it, is go to a shop with a buddy. You sit on the bike. Your buddy holds the bike upright (facing you, front wheel between their legs) so you can pretend you're riding it with your feet on the pegs.

      See how long you can last. Are you putting weight on your wrists? Did you hold the tank with your knees at first but you let go? Are you getting hip cramps or sore? Those are all signs that after 10 mins you'd be uncomfortable.

      If you only ride 30 mins at a time, a super sport may work great. If you do anything longer I'd recommend a naked bike, but pick a fast one.

      My FZ09, 0 to 200km/h is faster than my Cbr600rr (I had the 2007 / 2008 model, before Honda dropped the horsepower to 99). Above that the CBR pulls away. But if you look at an Yamaha MT10 or an Aprilia Tuono youd find that you get PLENTY of speed with comfort to ride all day.

      Especially look at the Cbr650r. It's got as much horsepower as a normal 600rr but it's more comfortable. You just lose a little of the top end, but gain a TON more comfort.

      To put it simply, super sports are meant for tracks. They are hard to justify on the streets. They are not meant for comfort at all, they are meant for performance above everything.

      I tried the s1000rr and this is my initial target. Still, I thought its too much power for now. Therefore 600 will be my next I believe. I have got quoted for the 600 and it is 400 extra on top of my current insurance. I have also found a 2014 model cbr600rr for very good price

      about 7 months ago
    • WebbyRides
      WebbyRides In reply to Jaffar k

      Depends. How long are your trips? What has your insurance quoted you for a 600?

      I always get quotes for bikes, new and used, before I start researching.

      600's are known to be incredibly uncomfortable. I could only put up with it for a few months before I sold mine. I don't even have a bad back or anything, but all supersport seats are hard and not meant for long trips.

      Yes, there are guys who HAVE done long trips on supersports, but enjoying yourself while doing the trip is more important

      Did you ever look at the CB650R? I have a 2015 500r as well and am trying to decide which to upgrade to--650 or 600. 650 seems more practical but there's something about those super sports...

      Thanks! I was leaning that way and I think that settles the issue for me. The cbr650r looks REALLY good too. Hopefully the insurance isnโ€™t as bad either

      WebbyRides In reply to Wonberger

      I'd HIGHLY recommend the 650F (85hp) or 650R (95hp). Those bikes have TONS of power and a much better seating position than the 600rr (99hp). With an aftermarket exhaust the 650F and 650R are also MUCH louder than an FZ09.

      Had I known about those bike models when I was shopping around I would have never bought a 600rr.

      Hi im 19 and work fulltime and go to school and sold my 250 after about 1100 miles. Im a small dude and am fully confident with buying a 500 but a 600 seems a little sketchy to me since I still consider myself a new rider. Do you think i should just go with the 500 and keep working my way up in size or just say f it and go with the 600? Thanks!!

      WebbyRides In reply to Rezo

      I just know that as soon as I got into a sports car when I was young I tried to see how fast it could go lol. That's the #1 thing you're not supposed to do. So if someone handed me a 600rr I'd be like "fire this bitch up, I'll take her out for a rip".

      So if you are impulsive, anything more than a 500 is dangerous

      For instance, a drag race between a Ninja 300 and Honda cbr500rr is almost identical. Not a huge difference. Call your insurance companies first before you buy a bike. Get some quotes to make sure they aren't gouging your wallet

      Great video, really helpful. I'm a new rider, seriously considering the CBR500R and the 600F/ 650F. Do you know how the 500 compares to them? The 600f is more upright etc like the 500 which is good for me. But power wise is there much difference? Insurance, mpg etc??

      This is abit late but I own a cbr600f 2011 and I would highly recommend it abit more of a sporty position but still comfy terms of power it's definitely the best choice as the cbr650f is less powerful

    • WebbyRides
      WebbyRides In reply to Ricky Vassell

      The CBR600f and 650F are getting closer to the 600rr. I know someone with a 650F and it's incredibly closer to a 600rr - where I would tell a beginner to stay away. I think it's about 10hp less than the 600rr. I know in Ontario the insurance difference from a 500 to CBR600/CBR650 is a huge leap. Almost double. I would still recommend a beginner pick up a used 500, ride it for a year or two, and then jump up to a 600f or 650f

      And about the fuel consumption, I think every bikes are the same. The more you twist the throttle, the more fuel it takes to burn inside the engine. So far, the CBR500R are more fuel saving than the CBR600RR. The bike also a quite fast. Not so bad in performance actually but the bike is seriously heavy.

For those who decided to buy a bike, go get the CBR500R if youโ€™re running for long distance destination.

      So I have a question as a total bike newb: can you get a bike with the engine of the 600RR (high revving lots of HP) but the seating position of the 500? I've always loved the bikes with fairings (like the RR and similar) and loved the high revving power of the sport bikes but I dont think I could handle the seating position anyone due to health issues.

      Sport bikes rev high and aren't comfortable. Everything else is more comfy but doesn't rev quite so highly. Look up the Suzuki Bandit. They have sport bike styling, tons of mower I'd you look at the 1200 and my friend has one with the most comfortable seat I've sat in. I'm truly jealous of his seat and seating position
