ZX-7R Question

Ok so I have had my Katana for two years and put almost 12k on it. How steep of a learning curve am I looking at to move to a ZX-7R? Well any SS for that matter but more specifically a 7R.

you'll be good....as long as you are responsible. I went from an 88 Kan of Tuna to a 94zx7 (1mudbug now owns it) and it was a good intermediate bike. Not the fastest (but fast enough), definitely heavy, but very stable and forgiving bike. I liked my ZX7, if I could justify riding the streets again a ZX7 would be one of my first choices.

I have a 98 ZX7R and love it. It is a bit bulky but it is for sure stable. My son has the 07 GSXR600 and i liek my 7R better. It feels more stable and solid when cruising(back road hauling A$$). Youll be fine with a ZX7R. You will love it.
