I have EXACTLY the same problem, and no obvious solution.
I did manage to force a delete of Safari 6.0.2.
I used "Get info" on the rogue Safari application and then in Sharing and Permissions changed everthing to read & write.
I then tried installing 6.0.1, but the program is still broken.
I then used timemachine to restore an old version of Safari 6.0.1, but the program is still broken.
I deleted 6.0.1 and then installed the 1st Safari for Lion 6.0.0, but the old program is also broken.
My 5 year old Black Macbook cannot be upgraded to Mountain Lion.
I'm now stuck using Google Chrome browser as a temporary workround.
Upgrading a browser from 6.0.1 to 6.0.2 shouldn't destroy the browser.
Reverting back to 6.0.1 should be an option!

Open the applications folder
Right click on Safari
Select "Show Package Contents"
Delete the folder "Contents" in the window that opens (you will need to enter your password)
Type (without quotes) "sudo rm -d /Applications/Safari.app"
Enter your password again.
Safari should now be deleted, and you can then restore from Time Machine

I selected and opened Safari and deleted Contents.
I then deleted Safari using Terminal.
I then restored Safari 6.0.1 (Created Mon 1st August) from my Timemachine backup.
The restored Backup still doesn't work and crashes on launch.

My issue with 6.0.2 was that websites were acting "strange" whenever I would try to put something in a shopping cart. It seemed a bit buggy, so I downgraded and all is fine. I didn't have crashing issues, so unfortuately, I can't help you. Did you try trashing the .plist file? Many times that helps.
