I just bought my wife a new 750 and rode it home, wow I was pleasantly surprised by its comfort for a sport bike, ergonomics and flickability. Its handles great and the power while not like my R1's is def there. Anybody else have any impressions of this great bike?

I cant quit ridin this thing the more Im on it the more I love it, the handling is so neutral and the motor is absolutly awesome. I have ridden all the 1k's and 600's of every manufacture and most of the duc's including the 1098R and this is my favorited by a longshot. Cant wait till the brake in period is up so I can romp on it.

I am also the owner of an 06 gsxr 1k and yes it has more power than this stock 750 but not even in the same ball park as far as weight or handling and I am gonna get this little bike up to speed in the power department with some yoshimura parts in the very near future hehe.
