I have noticed that 6 speed bikes run about the same rpm in top gear as a 5 speed bike. The 6 speed bikes have a closer ratio between 1-6 which can help keep the bike in the power band in the tight stuff but does not really help on highway crusing. A 6th gear would be helpful if the 1-5 gear ratios remained the same and the 6th gear was truly an overdrive.
