Anyone with more experience be my guest & correct me but it seems the '07 GSXR750 has two distinct stages of acceleration :

0-5k Respectful city traffic commmuting

5-10+ General hooliganism + guaranteed police tractor beam once you reach hyperspace.
.
Whenever I hit 6k my GSXR basically explodes in speed. Is everyone else's bike like this? The first time it hit it was like a switch being flipped ON. I almost was thrown off my first test ride. Wow!!!

HANG ON TO YER BUTT!!!

Yes...that is the exact nature of the 750 engine! What you described is totally normal and if your bike wasn't doing that then I'd be concerned. The rewarding trick is to learn how to ride it well in the hooliganism part of the powerband. That comes with time. Be safe!

That 2nd stage you speak of, also have different personalities depending on what gear you are in. 2nd and 3rd are my favorites when being heavy handed
