Ok 4 things...

First, the sig with the pic of the u-haul with what looks like 4 stolen bikes crammed in there as sloppy as they were thrown in there cracks me up. lol

Second, Learning on a 1000 is stupid for anyone to do no matter how easy you are on the throttle. Thats just ignorance!

Third, The 1000's now-a-days handle close to the 600's only with WAY more power. I dont see why any experienced rider wouldnt want a 1000 over a 600. I could however see why a 600 would be better to stunt.

Fourth, This sig above me is hilarious!! lol :laughing6 :laughing6

The guy is a pinhead.

The b/s "switchable power" is a marketing tool that Suzuki is going to use to put the bike in the hands of tons of newbies.
I can just hear the sales pitch now: "You can just leave it in it's lowest setting until you master the bike, than you can switch it to full power without having to buy a new bike!":confused1

Yeah right, like anyone is going to ride around with it in it's lowest setting.

I prefer my CBR600rr over the 1000rr I used to own, but that's just me though. I never felt like there was anywhere to really use the 1000's power.

I also haven't really noticed the 600 "lacking" for power to do what I want with it.
I regularly ride with a bunch of friends that have 1000's and don't have any problems, I just have to shift a little more, that's all.

I think it all in the frame of mind...My first bike was the CBR 1000F that i have now...I just KNOW it can cause some SERIOUS drama if I don't respect it. And I respect everytime I get on it!

Werd! Looks like the fatalities count will be rising for 2007 since suzuki has designed their newest selling feature. For them, its more big bikes being sold which equals more $$$. For consumers, its eating up every word of the salesmans pitch to talk them into it and then getting hurt or killed on the thing when they should have never been on a bike like that to begin with. That switchable power stuff is a joke!

600's have more than enough punch for most people. Honestly, the 600 has enough punch for me but the 1000 is just so smooth and powerful that it takes no effort to get up to speed on it. Both bikes have their ups and downs for sure but i really like how smooth and powerful my 10r is throughout the whole RPM range. BIG DIFFERENCE!
