2006 gsxr 1000 vs 2006 r1 (smoothness comparison)

i have ridden my r1 for 5000 miles now, and never rode my gsxr 600 until yesterday. the biggest thing i noticed was that the r1 was just so much smoother with on/off throttle response, and inspires confidence as opposed to the gsxr 600. i was wondering if anyone with a 2005/2006 gsxr 1000 who has also ridden a 2006 r1 can give me comments on the smoothness of the bikes. how is on/off throttle response on the 05/06 gsxr 1000? is the transmission smooth? i don't care about which one is faster, only which one feels better. if i went from an r1 to the gsxr 1000, would i be disappointed with the quality?

I've owned the K6-600... I've ridden the 06 R1

Yes you'd be dissapointed
Yes i've noticed the throttle sensitivity and all round unpleasantness of trying to wheelie the farker only to loose all throttle control.
Yes the Suzuki quality sucks over the R1

Just Yes dude.

my real question was to see if the gsxr 1000's smoothness was good compared to the r1. i know the gsxr 1000 is made better than the 600, but i wanted to see how much better.

i think you may have made the assumption my first bike was the r1? i worded my sentence wrong. my statement should have said "i never rode my 600 for the past 6 months until yesterday". i rode the gsxr 600 for 10,000 miles, but when i got the r1, i rode the r1 exclusively. and then when i hopped on the gsxr yesterday for the first time in 6 months, it felt very abrupt and rough compared to the r1.

anyway, i just wanted information on the gsxr 1000's smoothness....

The GSXR 1k has excellent throttle response. You won't be disappointed. Unfortunately, the 600 is not known for its throttle response out of the box.

The 05/06 1K is pretty smooth. I personally feel that the R1 is smoother all around. I hate to say it but, you won't be disappointed but, you will notice an obvious difference. I am assuming when I say this but, I think that part of the on and off throttle smoothness for the R1 is contributed to the lack of wtq the 06' R1 has opposed to the 06' 1k on the low/ mid end. That's the honest truth.

Hi there, I ride both bikes. The trouble is my bikes R1 and GSX-R1000K6 are race bike with Yoshimura ECU, Bazzaz, quick turn throttles, STM clutches, etc etc, I'd like to say that GSX-R1000K6 has a more permissive engine while R1 is a bit more brutal [the harder you ride it the better it feels]... On the other words, the R1 won't allow us to get lazy on the race tracks and ride it slower while GSX-R1000K6 does, without any signs of weakness. [I mean lazy usually when we are forced to slow down on wet tracks ]. Throttle response is pretty much the same, but I cannot tell much about the stock bikes. The + of the R1 is actually it's stiffer chassis and a stronger braking power. The + of GSX-R1000K6 is the engine. I would add that the GSX-R1000's engine helps me to set the bike along the corners better than the R1 and the R1's chassis makes my feeling more compact over the corners. I also can add, in case it helps you out, the R1 makes me to wait a bit more [I'm talking about moments, not seconds here] to open its throttle after the apex while the GSX-R allows me to open it earlyer [same lanes]. On the other hands R1 allows me to lean it better and get into the corners with a little more speed than GSX-R1000K6. But this is just me. I cannot dare to make a general rule of this fact. My laps are better with the R1 than GSX-R1000K6 on certain tracks [like Mission, BC], and worse on other tracks [like Portland Raceways, OR] My final answer: you cannot be disappointed by the GSX-R1000k6 at all, but it depends on your riding style. As everybody knows, the rider is the most important piece of the assemble. It may count about 80%. I hope I've given you a hand! Have a safe ride!
