The only beef I've got with mine, is that it's not a 2006 Gixxer 750. Other than that, nill.

I ride with a guy that has a '05 750. His bike is real quick and he's a good rider too. He loves it. I actually sampled it this weekend and it felt way different than my R6 so I didn't push it or anything.

I haven't owned a 750 in a fey years but still get to ride'em occasionally. My only complaint is the tall stock gearing. That's a normal complaint from me on most all stock geared bikes no mater what manufacture.

I got an 03 750, honestly I can't think of a negative thing to say about it. I love the bike. Its perfect, plenty of power with out giving up much handling. I don't know its just perfect for me. Hope you feel the same about yours when ya get it.

It is said that the 750 is the best of both worlds (600 & 1000). Near the weight of the 600 and near the power of the 1000. Great bike! I haven't heard anybody say anything bad about them!
