GSXR 600 and 750, any different other than engine size?

This has prolly been covered before, but I can't seem to find the answer.

Are the current GSXR600 and 750 exactly the same other than the engine.

Side by side they look to be, and other than stickers and colour choices, I would never know which was which...

Or am I wrong and every single piece is unique

well you could say that is ALL that is different... but that is really a HUGE diference. basically yes, they are the same bike, one just has a bigger engine. they are both gonna scoot you around just as fast as you need to go though.

I saw a thread on honda-tech a while back a guy was looking at buying a 750 but he thought the guy was trying to pass off a 600 as a 750.. The guy wouldn't let him ride it so maybe he was..

Engine size and color options are the only difference.

Yes it was a real question, and if you have nothing to add to the thread you can get lost


Thanks to the people who actually answered.

I didn't want to ask a salesguy and feel like a complete idiot.

I had one guy tell me the Ninja 650R was replacing the SV650. Different makers!! He said the SV was getting dated, and I had to remind him it was redone in '04! Brilliant! And he was an MSF instructor for dirt, who supposedly owns a sportbike. Oh well- the internet is your friend. More idiots, but occasionally you find a good group that knows what they're about.

Just take it easy, most of the guys here are and like to yank your chain once in a while

The 750 is just a tad heavier...something like 4lbs.

Engine, Fork color, fairing color, and stickers. It's funny to see the 750 forks and body work more available on ebay, people sticking 600 stuff on their 750s to cheat.

That's because he wanted it for the track to race 600s not because there was something wrong with it. You got to put up some dough to challenge racers to see if they have 600s, not a lot of people do it.
