Diff between 600 and 750.

Sorry if this has been talked about a million times I just can't find a thread about it. Anyways, I'm looking at buying either a GSXR600 or 750 next summer. I know they're both on the same frame and weight almost the same...just a engine difference. This would be my first sport bike, however, I have been riding a measly three years. Basically I would like to know what the extra 150cc gives...would it be too much torque? Or what, it's all so confusing to me.

Oh and I'm not going to be buying a 250 or 500, I'll out grow it in a few months which would be a waste of money.

Thank you.

the difference is essentially that the 750 offers a little more power, while basically retaining the handling and style of the 600. its definately noticeable, as a few friends I know who ride 750's tell me.

from what I've seen though, they're great bikes. just gotta be careful on em.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.

First off... Nobody outgrows a smaller bike. Remember yo, people race those 500's and 250's... Hell... People race 50's.

That being said everything I have read about the 750 says, "liter bike balls, with middleweight precision handling." If I were to buy a RR (or SS for you fluckers that want to bust my balls )... It'd be a GSXR 750.

One heck of a point!
The bigger bikes are just easier to loop and a bit heavier. With alot of throttle and clutch control you'll be alright. All bikes can and will get you killed no matter if it's a 50 or a 1400 so please just be careful and wear good gear!

Why not go with an old Yamaha 700? There's a guy on my military base selling one.

On a side note though, to the original poster, I'd probably say see if you can go to a dealer that'll let you test ride the bike. I know people that say they want a 750+cc bike for a first bike but when they get on a 600, they're like 'forget about it!'

Even my 2005 R6, it got some work done to it but the guys at the shop have rode it, say its even faster than their Kawasaki 600, they want to take it to the race track in Southern New Mexico and run it, see what it runs on laps.

A gixxer 750 has been referred to as almost having the power of a litter with the weight and handleing of a 600.... it pretty much describes it right there... My 01 Gixxer 750 puts out 144 hp stock to the motor as aposed to the Gixxer 600 of that year putting out 110hp and they are very simmilar in weight.

Haha, thanks for all the info and tips.

No worries about gear I have a full Icon Set which I wear no matter how hot or how far I'm going. I've already droped a bike going 35, the gear saved my head and my arm...
