ive seen it first hand, and got it recorded... it all comes down to rider...

I have an 07' R1, I like it better than the gixxer. It's a personal choice, but if you're interested in it go check them out. I won't go into details about what I've done to it or what purposes it serves but it's a great choice for many reasons.

i think after much debate im going to see what kinda deal i can get me on a daytona 675, i have always love the way these bikes look and how they handle. Ive rode one before and liked it alot, but never really got to test it out because a) wasnt my bike. b) was new to riding that bike and am not going to test the limits of something ive never rode before based on my 636 seat time.

I AM SPEAKING FOR MYSELF non-comprehending one, and for the record I've completely TOPPED my 2006 SUZUKI GSXR 1000 out on several occassions, but the fact of the matter is it's not something that occurs too often and shouldn't occur on the city streets anyway, which is why the need for that kind of power on an everyday basis is not necessary.

well w/ that logic 750's are faster then 600, and yet there is a 600 class but not a 750.

Unless ur drag racing, the liters and above are really good for nothing on a everyday basis. I'd buy another 600/750, add full exhaust, good tires, pc, tweek the cams, and u'd see the same sort of power u'd get everyday outta a liter, and would come out about 3 grand cheaper!!

Just my .02...and yes i have a liter bike.[/QUOTE]

True...but the reason I went with a 1000 instead of the Daytona 675 was midrange power...which is great for the street. Not saying a 600 doesn't have adequate power, because it does...but I like being able to cruise around and not shift lots.

Most of today's 600's are faster than my Speed triple but I don't have to shift so much or rev so high.

Another reason I didn't opt for the 675 was ergonomics. Great for the track, annoying for the street.

that's because 600ss bikes got so powerful in the mid 90's they had to bump the superbike class up to 998cc 4's to make the difference in speeds justifiable for two classes. all the 750's got replaced by 1000 ss's and the old open classers went up to 1200cc plus.

come on ed, u know all this.

You have only been riding for a year-I don't know if you have any track time.

That said (the part about not getting a liter) threads like this are foolish-you will probably never be able to get the potential out of the bikes and actually appreciate any differences. Pick the bike that fits your ergonomics the best.

cause parts are expensive if you drop it and it's justified to have a big ol repair bill if something goes wrong.

I'm going to have to pull for the Suzukis. I love my 600. It seems to pull pretty good even with 45 ft/lbs of torque. I really love to drop it a couple of gears and hit it to hear the engine rev...

The liter bikes that I am around are owned by really fast riders. I don't think it is for me but I would really look into the GSX-R1000 before I bought anything else. My second choice would be for the Yamaha and the Kawi afterwards.

My $0.02
