so basically you're paying more money for something no one has, right? i wouldnt pay more money for a bike that doesnt perform as well, and costs more money for parts just because its "exotic". give me a break :lamefirefighter81 said:That's like saying "get the Ford Mustang Cobra , it's faster than that Ferrari 308" It's not just about speed, riding an Italian bred bike is a different experience altogether, it's "overpriced" it may not beat the 750 in the books or even the track, but it's just a more "exotic" riding experience, I don't know how else to say it. Go with the Aprilia, it's an awesome bike, and I think the MSRP on them is $11,999 where the GSXR is $8000, so yeah, more money, but you get what you pay for with the Priller.
give me the gixxer and the extra money and ill have a bike that the aprilla wont be able to touch. not just speed wisenig said:Dismount the spec sheet and step away slooowly
I'd go for the Aprilia unless money is an issue to you. I agree with whoever said that going from a Gix 6 to a 750 is pretty boring. Unless what you want is a faster version of your bike, in which case, by all means get the Gixxer. The Aprilia will be a bit and heavier heavier also, so if you're a small guy, you might feel more comfy tossing the Suzuki around. They're really just two completely different bikes, you have to decide what you want, V-twin or another Inline 4. If you plan on keeping the bike for a while I'd also check into the reliability of Aprilia, though from what little I know it's quite good. The Japanese bikes are all bulletproof, of course. What kind of riding do you plan on doing, exactly?
