The 750 will be easier to ride slowly than the 600 . Higher gear lower revs possible .

Thanks sequentialshift.... That's something I was wondering about.

Such as riding through a parking lot, or stop and go traffic.

Is the throttle sensitivity and brake sensitivity the same on the gsxr 600 and 750? Or is the 750 closer to the characteristics of a 1000?

F4spintST .... I wouldnt mind having a scooter. Hehe, their cool also.

That's also something I was wondering about. Don't the 600 and 750 have the same seating position ? Or is there a difference?

750 tends to be closer to a 1000 so you can leave it in 4/5th and just roll on and off with no need to go near the crazy fast zone . Use the torque rather than the revs .

Why don't you just get a Ninja 650, SV650, or FZ6? All are far better options then a GSX-R600/750.

Hahahahahah

Yep, I just can't help it. I've been obsessed with sportbikes since I was a kid. I totally can understand where you are coming from though. The 650s are probably a lot more comfortable. But I just love the gsxr and the ninja 636.

That's cool about using the torque. So in a way, iit might be more user friendly on the 750 because you can stay out of the power band. Did I understand that correctly?

Deals are out there. I got my 08 Daytona for $3800.

And as far as the low end torque thing, the 600 will still have more than enough torque to get you around, and it'll do so much faster than your 250 did.

Regardless, they're both great bikes. I rode an 08 GSXR750, which I greatly enjoyed. If insurance on a GSXR wasn't so ridiculous, I had been considering buying a new GSXR 750.

Thanks man for taking the time to do that. I honestly didn't know you could get a Daytona for that good of a price.
