I new someone would point it out so I have to ask. Steel vs aluminum frame, what are the diferences besides the weight? I have a KLR and I asumme it has a steel frame since it was design in the middle 80's with standard if not old tecnology for that time which makes it late 70's?

HP is a personal thing here in ADV someone mention the HAYABUSA makes "decent" power, OMFG! if that bikes just makes "decent" power... everything else must be a bicycle.

I read the 6 has like around 80 hp vs the 6R 60's? but in order to get all 80 you must rev it past 7-8k rpms , how is the 6R making the ponies? low around 3-6 k rpm?

I also read the 6 can be on the vibeby side, right? and the 6R?
