Bandit 600 vs FZ6R

my racing bud bought an older model 600 Bandit , a 97 model , I believe... He tells me to keep the FZ6R, and ride with him. He's finally getting it on the road legally,this week. Has anyone had any experience with this model ? Is it a "semi-naked" Katana ?
My bud only paid $1USD ,for his Bandit. It is a clean,low mileage bike. He has serviced/resealed the fork, and installed a new Dunlop front tire. I already know he can wax me on the track, but I don't want to be embarassed on any road jaunts. Of course, we would always ride responsibly on public roadways. Actually, I don't have the same desire to ride on the street, since I started vintage roadracing. It's much SAFER on the racetrackPlus, we wouldn't want to be classified as part of the 140MPH homeboy-street-racer-gangsters ... someone buy this blue 09 FZ6R w 29 miles on it, and it won't be an issue. $5K/BO It looks better than a Bandit !

yes IndianBikes, they are nice bikes. I think alot of Yamaha dealers are disappointed with the FZ6R. It's my undertanding, that they sell 2-1 FZ6 over the 6R ... and there are plenty of unsold FZ6R bikes in showrooms. But that may be due to this crap economy in the US market. There are likely other factors as well...

Yo, whats up SHAKEYJAKE, the FZ6 and the Bandit would have been great bikes to ride together.

Better still would be an RD and an RZ.
