I've been riding an F4i for the past few years & have gotten the green flag from the boss to start looking for a new bike. I rode a friend's '07 GSXR 750 this past week & of course, was thouroughly impressed. I took a short trip to the Suzuki / Yamaha dealer & he only had one left for almost $10.1k. He also had one '06 1k left. He was trying really hard to sell it to me. It was priced @ $9,995 I think. Not too bad for a brand new 1k I thought. But he told me if I would take it off his hands he'd sell it to me for $9k right then! WOW huh? Now, I also have been eyeing an '06 1000RR @ the Honda shop. The yellow & blue one for $9,995. I like this bike very much as far as the looks go. I was not into the paint scheme on the Gixxer as much. I could probably get the 1000RR for the $9k price as well. Well, actually, my question is: Would it be a wiser decision to just buy a liter bike & not bother w/ the 750? I have read somewhere that the GSXR 750 is the perfect SS bike for the street. The salesman told me that I would be growing out of the 750 as well eventually & would want to go w/ a liter bike. I know, I know he's trying to sell a motorcycle, but, I am just trying to decide if I should just get a 1000 or stick w/ a 750. Oh, & before I left, he said, "if you really want the 750, what if I could get you on it for $9k???" What do you all think? I would like to hear opinions. I ride to work, go to bike nights, group rides, rides w/ just me & my girl, & everywhere I do not have to load up the family to go. Not any track days or any thing.
