Tails, I wasn't responding to you; you seem to get what I'm saying. I was actually responding to FUK8, my bad.

I agree, overall I think the Gix looks nicer than the Honda as well.

I have an '09 GSXR750 that I bought new back in Feb this year. I rode my friends CBR 1000 a couple of months ago and another friends '01 Yamaha R1 the other day. Don't remember what year the CBR was but think it is around an '04. I loved how smooth their 1000's were. My 750 is stiff and sensitive and can be very jerky so in traffic it's not always that fun.

Off the line I took my friends R1 and he didn't catch up until about 130 mph and then he flew past me. He didn't catch up until 130!!! How often are you going to be riding that fast on the street??? The 750 has all the power I need for joy riding and is a whole lot more fun to ride. It has enough torque but not too much.

I would rather have a 1000 for everyday cruising around because of how smooth they are and because you can roll on the throttle in just about any gear/speed but there is no way I would give up the 750.

Plus my 750 came loaded. I have hotbodies slip on exhaust and I can hear my engine speed through every gear and speed. When I was on the CBR I could not hear when to shift. I looked down one time and was almost redlining. Same with the R1.

That's my two cents.

I to have been riding well over 25+ years.

I very much enjoy building a new bike with the main emphasis being track days and an occasional street ride.

To date I have not been able to stick to one size. I found it to be more fun to keep changing it up. I go up and down the 600/750/1000 product line.

They all have their advantages and disadvantages.

I think it really comes down to personal preference.

Get the one that jump at you right off, seems to work for me.

Went a totally different direction, and got a Suzuki B-King (basically a naked Hayabusa)! What a f'n fun-ass bike, gonna be loving this for a while!

It's like the power and acceleration of my CBR1k, but in a super fun layout, hooligan style!

Love the hell out of it so far...

Thanks for all the opions.

750 SINCE 2006 and still the front man
. Moded the 2017 to exactly how I ride in 3 days ( without tune) its necmved to late ri say that the weight and girth gain from 6 to 750cc in unnoticeable with HP gains. But that chuppy 1000 will not touch my lean mean cornerner monster. A descent driver will usually win with the smaller lower HP bike. And when your looding weight to gain HPV it becomes an R1 RAPEST AND A pentsgalli semi equal, 50/50; 60/40, but the 750 is the baby invhhat class and I can just plain out ride my duck buddies. So I give the A lot of benefit of doubt. And even though this Is 10nyears late and my 13th year on the 750, I cry knowing it disappears forever next year
So 2017 taylormade racing full exhaust. K&n high flow. pcm v. With Ecu deregulation flash and full tune
. Newer pilot power 2CT. 1450 miles. 5th and final oil change today to 7100 4t full synthetic. You'll never find a more properly broken in motor and trans. Accepting offers
