Question Pros and cons of a 600 vs. 750???

I want to get a new bike, and need some input on ya'lls purchases. What would be a benefit of having a 750 over a 600 or vice versa, in ALL aspects of riding, track, stunting, and just plain old street riding? Can anyone help? And if you would recommend what NOT to buy as well...thanks all for your input, it is greatly appreciated....

um... why would you care about getting "punked" on the streets by a bigger bike?

I was thinking that on the highway and on power ups, but won't it be a little Heavier to get up slowly? Or will the torque and HP make up for the weight?

I say 750 if you have experience enough to handle it. same frame and everything as the 600 just a bigger motor. 750's are a awesome balance between the liter bike and 600 class. IDK why more manufacturers don't pursue that market.

Just get a 1000 and ride the streets. If you get a 600 see you in the lots.

01 CBR F4i totaled






Except for straight line acceleration and top end, a new 600 is pretty much an all around better bike than the 750. It's lighter and quicker, which means it will be funnier as well as easier to ride at the track (and twisties too).
You will feel underpowered if you start playing with the bigger bikes on the freeways though.
For stunting, the F4i is just plain better than the RR (cheaper as well!).
And, he is right about the stunting. If you go that route your bike is going to get beat up. There is not too much you can do about it.
That my 2 cents.
