I was wondering , what would an R6 / ZX-6R / CBR600RR be like to ride everyday? Is the riding position extremely uncomfortable ? Does it have really poor fuel economy?
But the position a supersport puts you in, is it really that uncomfortable? I mean do you support your upper body just with your back/abs ? I've never ridden a supersport but if its so, then I imagine it would be horrible for more than 20 minutes.Well all those questions are relative... a "serious" sport rider would ignore the discomfort, and assume the fuel economy is rite-of-passage.
Define your commute situation.
Are you ready to hold a push-up for an hour in gridlock on a hot day? Or is your commute more like breezing through country roads?
I rode my bike to work only occasinally, and for me that means about 45 minutes highway and maybe 15-25 minutes in slow city traffic. Not a long commute, but still, I couldn't imagine trying to do that on a true supersport
Well it's not about me, but I've seen many people riding supersports across the city and also some say they do some touring with them (up to 1000 km in a few days probably). That's why I was asking. The position seems awkward.Sure, why not? Ride what you've got. You might consider some hard bags or a tail bag if you need to carry stuff with you to and from. How long is your commute if long term comfort is the question though?
