Which Bike?

I've started to think about getting a new bike. I'm not sure what I want to get yet. Which bike do you think is the best?

Sorry... All the same reasons... Street riding only, I've only listed those few, because those were the main bikes I were interested in with the exception of the Ninja.

I'm riding a 2004 gsx-r600 now and I'm not considering liter bikes. I'm a Suzuki fan. How big is the difference between the gsxr600 and gsxr750

if you're gonna get the GSXR750, just pony up $1k more and get a bike that has 25 more horses, and weighs 9 lbs. less. 2008 CBR1000RR

for street-riding only stay away from the 08 R6, it has absolutely no middle-range. ALl the power is between 9.5-redline. The GSXR600 will probably be the best bet, because of the ride-ability and price. And if you're only street-riding you won't need the extra 150ccs of the 750.

I'm not interested in a 1k, nor do I want to spend the extra money.

750...
Almost as light as a 600 almost as fast as a 1000. The best of both worlds. (I bet insurance is cheaper than a 1000 too).
