GSXR 600 or 750?

I am going to buy a GSXR and can't decide between the 600 and 750. I currently have a Yamaha Roadstar Warrior and love the power, but also feel really comfortable on it. I would like a sport bike that is fun and comfortable (power wise) to ride. I will ride on the streets 95% of the time with a little bit of track time in the future. I have not owned a sport bike and I weigh 150ish. Opinions?? :dontknow:

There are many things to consider but there is only a 5 pounds weight difference. I would get the 750 but have you sat on the bikes to see how they feel to you?

Engine: 749cc, 4-stroke, four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve
Dry Weight: 163 kg (359 lbs)

Engine: 599cc,4-stroke,four-cylinder, liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve
Dry Weight: 161 kg (354 lbs)

The 750 will give you the torque you want for the street

I found sportbike a lot more comfortable than my VTX1300R. Yes, I have done long trips on both and I know.

Forget the 600 or the 750 just get the 1000. More power, it's there when you need it.

There aren't many places driving around that I get to hold it open and shift beyond 2nd gear before running into traffic or red lights or whatever. By then I am usually going just a little faster than the posted limit (well, maybe twice)
The 600 has more than enough for me.

750 would be my choice hands down.
Don't have to rev the shat outta it to move and yet it's still light and nimble like a 600.

get the 750....I looked long and hard at both......last year.......and settled on the 750.

600 is only about $1000 cheaper........not worth it to save $1000, IMO.

750 is the best all around...

Why wouldn't you go with the 750 if it is only 5lbs heavier? I love my 750 and plan on getting another in a couple years. Its a great mix between agility and power and I don't see why so many manufacturers stopped making them.
