honorsdaddy is right on about the 750
This quote pretty much says the same thing but it sums up why a 750 over a 600.

Even an older 00-03 750 will spank the sh*t out of any late model 600..at least in a straight line....They make about 20 to 25 more wheel hp then the newer 600's stock for stock.

Excellent for the street.

All things even a 750 will outrun an 848 in a straight line, and handle every bit as good with a few cheap mods & someone who knows how to set up it.
completely disagree. I would get the 848, much better bike. Cheap it is not, but getting dogged by a gsxr doesn't happen. I've owned them both

on the 250 you can accelerate flat out through all six gears, where on literbike you would just be getting out of first as the the 250 is close to topping out.

I hope I'm not the only person that seems to think that every post by this guy is full of fail, and I'm not sure why he thinks that it's cool that a liter bike in 1st gear is faster than his topped out in 5th

From what we have read so far that is a good thing and YOU have no business on anything faster than your lady killer you have now. I do assume you read the rip threads

4-8 months exp? I have more business on a bike than you do. I wasnt saying how cool it is that a literbike will do 90 in 1st. I was stating that you can twist the throttle on the 250, bang through all the gears and still not be going very fast. Hence why its safe and good shifting practice.

At no point did I say it was cool. I was using it as an example of how you can ride a 250 through all the gears and still remain at legal speeds.

I'm going to gues there is an extreme case of miscommunication on this here thread...

I have quite a bit more than 4-8 months experience. But I am an example of how quickly a bike can YOU UP in October I slid into a colvert after lowsiding 3/4 the way through a turn. I split my shin down from the top, and my femur head went through my pelvis and wont be riding anytime soon. I think im telling you from exp. stick to the 250,and for looking around and not paying atention WALK
