4 pounds? wtf how

According to suzuki the 600 weighs in at 354 lbs. Yet the 750 is rated at 359 lbs. These bikes have the exact same frame and everything. The only difference in them I believe really is the forks and rear suspension. So can anyone tell me how an extra 150cc's only adds 4 pounds?!

Hahaha, nice one.

Possibly uses more titanium than the 600 allowing for less increased weight?
Reading old reviews of cutting edge bikes back then is amazing, some of them were around 750 pounds with 80 hp and they were saying they were too fast.

I think the wieght diff in teh 600 n 750's is the engine tho. other than that their the same bike. And the 750 engine is just a bored out 600 aint it??? least the very first one I know now they have their own mold etc. but less cylinder material and slightly bigger pistons which wouldnt be much each

Thats why the 750 is the ultimate track bike. It can corner like a 600 but has more low end grunt.

Yeah, but you have to consider why they were too fast... My old man talks about a few old bikes that were just too fast... Not that they were really too fast, but they had engines that were more than what their chassis were really capable of handling...

I know if I were to buy a track bike... or hell, any RR... It'd have to be a 750.

I got one

I have that K6 750 GSXR. It's the first and only bike I ever bought and practically for the most part the only thing I've ridden. I did ride my buddies CBR a few times back in 1995. Family and friends were concerned that I bought such a bike, but my friend,who rides often, test drove it and he told me how responsive it was. It just handles really well. I love that bike, but I've never came close to pushing it to it's potential.

I wonder why rookies want to get flamed so much...
