You'll be waiting a whole year typically...they don't get here till April most of the time. It isn't like cars where the new year model gets here before the current year is even over.

that's not a good reason to get a 750. you'll wake up when the first couple of sv650s' go flying by you. get a sv650 or 600 those bike ware way more than you'll be able to handle.

I am willing to bet that you have ridden that 1000 for 8 years at about 25% of it's potential. How many pucks have you gone through in those 8 years?

Ive ridden the out of it! but now that Im older and have kids the track seems so much safer than the streets! Im sure I could run the 1000 on the track I just think its to much power and work I want to start small and go from there!

I see WAY more 600's and sv650s
