May I ask what you paid?dufrenchy said:I just took my Fizzer off the road (for sale in classifieds) and bought a Ducati 749. I occasionaly miss the comfort on a long ride, but the sound and power of this machine is unbelievable and makes it all worth it.
True, even keeping the rpms in the break in range the bike has tons of power.. I can be doing 100mph in the blink of an eye and never get over 6k. Handling is a whole new world as well, smooth as butter.I can only imagine you are going to feel a difference in all dimensions of the bike.
Never have been a Suzuki fan and all the reviews point towards the R1 as well.did you consider the gixxer equivalent at all and what your reasons were for staying with the Yamaha brand?
