History
Having heard a lot about legendary K5/6 1000s, I thought it will be a good idea to try one for myself... It is possible that my particular bike isn't what it should be (given that it is 10 years old now), but I cannot say that I am blown away... It's a very nice bike, but it is not a revelation. As a comparison, GSXR 750 SRAD has been an eye-opener and ZX6R p8f (which I hated at first) to me is the ultimate supersport. These two have set my expectations as to how the bikes should handle, whereas the 1000 K6 is more of a "rocketship" - comfortable, with plenty of low(er) down torque, fast and decent handling, but not amazing. I honestly think that although this is not a bike for novices, it is well-mannered and easy handling enough to work for someone with a low-intermediate level of experience - you can even commute on it (if you really have to)...
