Re: Gixxer 750 vs 600cc vs Literbike?
I started out on rgv250's in the early 90's then went straight to an early fireblade, then a rgv & zx7r up until 2005. In 07 I bought a 650 single tenere, rode it to work etc until in 2011 I bought my first new bike ever the latest at the time 2011 gsxr750.
the new 750's are crazy to the bikes I had before. No doubt about it, I found it full on to ride, throttle twitchy etc (to be expected given I what I was previously riding for years). Now close to 1.5 years later I still love the 750 and have done half a dozen track days with it, lots of commuting and many sunday rides. I did end up with a 08 cbr600rr track/race bike. But for the road the 750 seems fine. To be honest I'd like to try a 1000cc inline 4 as I have never had a ride on one. When the R1 came out I wanted one so bad, I declined having a go as I didn't need the debt changing over for one.
As it has been said that riding the 750 is almost like having a supersport race tuned 600, it's pretty fluffy below say 5000rpm, but for commuting in regular traffic it moves along just fine from lower rpms. On the track that bit extra makes it easier and a bit friendly to ride fast.
I am very happy with my 750. To be really honest, if I had my chance to buy a new bike again, I would look at a 600.
Good luck on whatever you choose.
