That and do you really NEED another 70+hp?

Do I think you can "handle" a Gixxer 1k? Probably, but since I don't know you nor have I seen you riding, the only one who can answer it properly is yourself.

Think about two things...

1. The new liter bikes make about twice as much power as your F3.
2. Insurance will be much higher than on your 600. Call around and start getting quotes.

Why do you want a b***** bike? It's not because you're riding at the limits of the bike... I'd say about 95% of the riders out there can't do that. Why not go to a Gixxer 750 instead?

Personally... I don't think anybody short of a seasoned road racer is really ready to "step up" to any of the new 1000cc race replica machines. But if you feel like you've acquired enough experience to simply survive the encounter with such a beast... go right ahead.

just think about al the people that say they bought 1000s and they would rather ride there 600 because it handles better id go with the 750 also youll never really need more than that

I agree with the 750 coment, the new gsxr has been one of the top 2-3 bikes in every review this year, you might want to try that for about 2 years then if it still doesnt have enough power then step up to the 1000cc monsters.

i was thinking about a zx-6r(636) or a new gixxer 750.A lot riders tell me they cant even use half the power on their litter bikes on the street.
