Sometimes the M is just not enough

Thrill, so I bought myself a used 2007 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. This Super Sport bike has a power to weight ratio of about 6 lbs per hp with me on it. With a 0-60 time in the low 3 sec. and 1/4 mile in the low 11 sec. stock. Modding this bike will be a lot less $$$ than the M. I still love and will always cherish my M as it is still my daily driver. However, now I have a new toy to play with at the track. For those of you that ride, I am sure you know the feeling.

nice bike,

i know what you mean BUT for me I had my bike (2004 CBR 600RR) before I got the M... I got the bike back in my freshman year at University when I had a slow car that did not provide ANY thrill at all. Still a blast to ride just sucks how the weather where I am (Toronto) is not very bike friendly half the year if not longer.

thanks, got a new Fairing coming from China, going to put on performance sprockets (-1,+2) for better low end torque and a power commander. The bike came with Yoshimura exhaust.

Bought the Bike for $3k but it is all the gears (Shoei helmet, alpine stars leather jacket, gloves, and boots) that adds up.

Not going to do any kind of stunts or fly down the highway, but it is hard not to rev this bike with 16K redline, the bike is asking for it

You can get close to that 6 to 1 ratio with a 585 kit and stripped m3 also.

My r6 was just a pig at 13000 to 16000 rpm. The sound was intoxicating

Awesome bike and nice lean, I'll have to work my way up to that. Thinking about taking the California Superbike school. I would love to see more action shots, anybody?

You know you drive an M3 when you're racing motorcycles from stoplights. I scared the hell out of couple of guys who took off on their bikes thinking they left everyone behind. I passed them. Startled them. Love this car.

Congrats! Awesome addition to your M. Always respect your bike! Unlike the car your margin of error is a lot less.

A few shots from a ZX-10 and a GSXR-600. The 600 was more manageable and fun, I actually turned quicker lap times on it than the 1,000cc machine.
