Hi all,

Does anyone know which bike is better? I know neither are a 6ixxer or an R6, but I am old man (28
looking for a little more comfort.

Thanks

The Kantana is usually the least favorite among the "lower/older" class sportbikes so.....

Get on them both and decide which feels right.

I am 6'3'' and the Yamaha and Katana both feel fine (34" inseam) in the leg comfort department. But, I hate the Katan. heh..but yes, sit on them both and decide that way.

Or shit, look into an FZ600 or whatever Yamaha's naked 600 is.

I don't know if you're going to find any more comfort in a Katana or a YZF (over a GSX-R). You may want to look into a slightly more upright bike, like an SV.

The FZ 600 is Yamahas naked 6. R6 engine that is geared for long travel. And a very comfy riding posistion and seat. Thats the route I'd go. But between the YZF and the Katana, the Yami all the way. Looks better and rides better.

The SV650 is better than both of those by far!!
