....miss the 6th gear on the newer models ? I don't do much duel sporting and It may not be needed. Just looking for opinions.

it depends on what you ride. I have the same bike and on tighter stuff you don't notice it, but when I'm out in the desert I'm wringing the bike's neck wishing i had an extra gear or two

I often wonder what the top speed difference would be between 5 and 6 speeds with same size sprockets?

Bugger all. I went from an 2010 to a 2013 and the difference seems to be in the spread and less in top speed. Run 13/50 on both.

No, you won't miss 6th gear....
