thanks my dad owns a 02 gsxr 1000 and i own a 96 zx7r. i really love his bike and was wondering if i should move to a liter bike or to a gsxr 750 i am leaning towards the 1000 but not quite sure. also i would like to know what you guys think about the zx10r compared to the 02 gix in all aspects.
My 750 race bike is way, way more bike than I will ever be rider. Sure the liter bikes get down the longer straights like Road Americs faster, but riding fast is at least 90% rider. When it comes to racing the liter bikes almost everyone rides a GSXR1000 or R1 but that is because of support and contingency $, Some guys do very well on the Honda CBR1000RR and the ZX10. For the street, all of these liter bikes are just plain unadulterated rocket ships, Read the refcent issue of Sport Rider. They do a pretty good comparo.
I've owned a zx7r (2000), and when I got the gsxr750 it was a world of difference in terms of both handling and power. There is no comparison between a zx7r and a gsxr750. You will be shocked at the difference. With either bike, 750 or 1000, you will have your eyes opened up after owning a zx7r, and that comes from someone who is partial to them.
