itll never get to the 180s, but it has more than enough to go well into the 160s with proper gearing.

it is in fact limited. read my post. i said GPS. there is no way in you did over 170 mph on a gixxer 600. indicated and true speed are two different things.

Well then are speedos lied cause that what they said. I'll find the article when I get a chance that says the 600 are not limited. The reason they are not limited cause do not have enough power to go faster than the 185 or 4 limit that is put on the American bikes from the factory.

the 600s are GEAR limited, not electronically. theyre geared lower to make up for the lesser power, or else our low end torque would suck even worse than it does now.

Well now that THAT is settled...

Get a 750 you cant beat displacement.
Handles almost as good as a 600, goes almost as good as a 1000.

does the used issue not come into play here??

For example: I had a 1997 kaw zx7 and that thing didnt stand a chance against a new zx6 which has about 5 more hp and 80 less lbs .... I think, and know it topped between 155 - 160

so it depends on EXACTLY what bikes you are looking at based on what you can afford.

although I would think the 03 zx7 will get you what you the top speed you want


not really intending a kawasaki plug, but trying to push other ideas

I DO agree Azylum...there have been EXTREMELY RELEVANT threads posted for once. thank you ALL for your OPINIONS OF KNOWLEDGE... I greatly appreciate ALL your input. From what I can gather though, I am about to be pimpin the GSXR750. I know I can handle it....there doesn't seem to be anything negative said about it, and I might be able to get it up to where I want it speed wise. It sounds like the WINNER. Thanks alot boys, you've out done yourselves once again. See ya'll soon at the BBQ! Oh n I will b hosting the west side M&G again shortly here...will keep u posted.

The only negative to a 750 that I can think of is if you plan on roadracing. There's no 750 class anymore. Other than that, a modern (> '00) 750 is a GREAT all around bike, and there's negligible weight penalty when compared to a 600. All of you who have said different are apparently stuck in the mid 90s. , modern litre bikes don't weigh but 20-30 lbs more than 600s. What was true 10 years ago as far as performance is concerned isn't true anymore.


, if you go back to '01 a GSXR 750 vs a 600 gets you a braced swingarm, and USD forks. Which are some nice additions that would offset the price difference......if in fact there actually is one.



All of this being said......the newer (04+) GSXR 750's are smallER bikes, but still not tiny. If you had to drop that kawi to be comfortable you're still going to have to do the same to a gixxer.
