2007 GSXR-1000. Why? Because I can.
Really though if I was set out to get a track bike I'd get the GSXR-750, since it's cheaper and has enough speed for the tracks I mostly ride on. I love my 1000 though. No replacement for displacment and you don't have to shift your off all the time like the 600cc do. Plenty of power to play with.

Fixed.

I've seen 1000's get smoked by 600's. It usually depends on who's at the controls.

It's not that bad.........but you do have to get it right the first time, they don't do well at mid-corner corrections.

And to answer the mans question.....ALL of them.

03 Gixxer 600... crashed 3 times, both pegs are grounded about an inch on each side, exhaust bent to , only tail fairing remains out of the bodywork which was trashed from my last crash, left side clip-on bar a bit tweaked, a dent on gas tank, dents on both sides of the frame where the clip-on bars hit, stator cover can take one more hit before needing to be replaced. My money is spent on BT002 Pro, Brembo 19x18 master, Galfer HH, steel braided brake lines...that How I roll at the track.

Tracked out SV-1000 cuz it was available when the money was burning a hole in my pocket. Plus I wanted something that was a big departure from my silky smooth, big I-4 street bike and brutha IT IS! Love the SV but would like to ride a 600 and 1000 I-4 track bike for comparison.

Yep....I'll admit it...998cc's scares me a little on the track! The 600's are plenty for me.
