I have wondered why they havent bumped it up to 800 or 850 to get a better torque curve/more power. It sits in a class by itself, so there seems to be no reason to stick to 750ccs. I wish Kaw would come out with the rumored ZX8.

Must be a difference in the handling because the dry weight of an '08 750 is 368 lbs and dry weight of an '08 1000 is 379 lbs.

The '06-'08 GSXR has good ergonomics for small peeps like myself. My '05 seemed to have more torque/hp than my nephews '06. My '05 put up some decent numbers on the dyno after adding a PC III and full yosi exhaust. But the newer ones seem to be easier to ride.

I'm converting to the GSXR 750 from my Yamaha, too. In fact, as notice to all, I'm selling my silver 2003 Yamaha FZ1 to do just that. Any takers? Lots of mods........

Not sure where that info is from but the 07-08 gsxr 1k's are the heaviest gsxr 1k in the history of that bike, and the 08-09 gsxr 750 is the lightest 750 in its colorfull history. That is in part why the ama yoshimura team still uses many parts off the 06 model such as the swing arms etc.

The 750 are great, and make awesome track bikes, but better than the 1000,s, I think not I agree with Curt my 07 ROCKS and I dont think a 750 would beat it with equally talented riders, except for maybe too much power spinning up, lots of guys say that, but in my opinion U cant have too much power, just my .02, I wouldnt trade my 1000 for 2 NEW 750,s

I went to the national forest this afternoon, that 750 is way superior to that R1 as far as corner entry speed. I am in love and my 07 R1 street bike is for sale 9500 takes it home, it has a full graves race system and power commander.
