ZX10R or GSXR750

I've been looking at pricing and I believe the ZX10R is maybe $100-$200 more than the 750 from everything that I've been seeing. I know the 750 is a more street friendly bike but then again for a few extra bucks I'd be getting alot more performance. What would you guys recommend, I'm kind of stuck on what woud be the better choice.

how much experience do you have riding? the 10R is a whole lot of motorcycle.

Why are you considering a 10R besides the $ factor?

Need more info about experience and intended use, they are 2 different bikes not like comparing a zx10 and a gixxer 1000, the 10 is a way faster motorcycle as far as acceleration and top speed, the 750 would prolly would be faster on the track for MOST people, the 10 would prolly get U killed faster because it has a lot more agressive throttle responce, for me I would get the 10, and the 750, but I ridden liter bikes for years, just my .02

If your coming from a ZZZr why not first get a real 600 first?
the 04- 05 10r is a nasty fyi

The gixxer is a sexier bike! ... but my judgment might be a little tainted! lol

Now you said the the zx10 will give you more performance ... that depends ... it will give you more power, but from what i have read, the gixxer 750 will have better handling performance. so it all depends on what your looking for.
