About Liter Bikes

Honestly whats the purpose of having them on the street? I'm not hatin or anything I just want to hear why people have them for street only.

I can see anything 750 and under, or older model bigger bikes like my CBR cause its just about equal with the newer model 600s.

ENLIGHTEN ME!

power is def going to be the big reply, but some people think the bigger cc bikes ride better and there is always a comfort factor

They wheelie at freeway speeds without using the clutch. Less maintenence problems.

I wanted more freeway accelaration because my f4i was lacking in 6th gear and when I bought my bike thats almost all the riding I got to do.

The torque is the reason! And if you do any kind of distance riding, ie; not posing, a 1000cc motor is much more versatile and smoother. Plus you have much more power to get out of trouble, and power wheelies of course.

oh yeah! The 600's are way to busy at cruising speeds. They feel like they want to just take off at any moment. They are exhausting to ride for me. I like to just twist the throttle and not care which gear I am in, my bike just goes!

There are many stock cars out there that will smoke the 600 and 750.

I don't think that they make the seat smaller on a 600.
