636 or my 600rr

im thinking of getting a bigger bike...ive never ridden a 636 and want to know if there is a bit more oomph to it and less busy in the gear box. im honestly trying to stay away from liter bikes, way to many tickets...i dont want a gsxr 750 and not wanting to spend money on a good condition 675 so the 636 was my next logical choice for a sport bike. what do you all think

dont understand your logic to litre bikes, as a 160 mph ticket is the same as a 190 mph ticket. Sounds to me you need to try a different motor, as in a triple or twin to get more torque for easier street riding. If you have to have more power go with the 750. Going to get more torque and more top end, but it is still an inline 4.

your cbr 106hp 45tq
636 130hp 51tq
'08 750 122hp 54tq

didn't realize the awesome power of the 636 lol, but as you can see the torque is around the same for all three. As stated above if you dont want to downshift as much check out a triple or twin.

Most of the later model GSXR750's I've seen were in the 130-140 hp range.

I think that 636 number is a bit high, more like 115-120 on an optimistic dyno

If you don't like rowing the gears on a 600, only thing you can do is go more displacement for torque.

The 750 is the best all around bike IMHO. Light, enough power to do whatever you want, cheaper to insure than the liter.

If you don't like tickets, don't blame it on the bike.. check your wrist.

The answer to tickets is rolling the throttle forward... the throttle can be found on the right side handle of the bike

Oh and of course... V-twin > * and Suzuki > * Japanese Bikes therefore one can conclude that since SV is a Suzuki and SV is a V-twin then SV must be > * Japanese bikes.

I thought either ticket was a trip to the pokey.

I've owned and dyno'd 6 636's, they're one of my favorite bikes, and the most HP I've ever gotten out of them is 119-120 rwhp.

That being said, yes its very similar to the power of a 750, I love the 636 personally.

All I can say is getting off a 12R and on a 636.. you have to wring it's neck to get it to do anything... LOL~~!

It's lighter but boy, there ain't no gitty up!

There is when it's modded and you only weigh 160lbs soaking wet!

Concerning the torque, don't just look at peak numbers, even though 6% more peak is quite a bit when we're talking only 50 to begin with. If it's got say 10 more at 5,000rpm then that's a huge jump.

Or look at a liter bike that may not have the peak HP but plenty of low and midrange power. Like my Speed Triple.
