All the new bikes have plenty of pro's. If you're gonna purchase one just go and sit on the bikes and see which one fits you best. Plenty of loyal people to both bikes but it all comes down to personal preference and what style of riding you plan to do.

yes, I know it will be personal preference but, I want to see what the people say who ride them everyday or weekend. Any major problems happened with the bike, after break-in did the bikes handle and power change anymore etc.

There is a reason that most folks buy GSXR's. They out sell any other brand for sure. Look at any race grid, with any organization. CMRA, WERA, CCS, AMA, 80% of them will be Suzuki's. They are the closest out of the box racers you can buy.

I've owned all brands and sizes over the last 20 years of street riding and racing. The Suzuki's fit me the best.

Today's bikes are so close in performance, unless you are a pro racer, you'll never notice the difference. It all comes down to two things, feel and price.

All of todays bikes are well built, handle great, and have plenty of power. Go sit on each of them, and buy the one that feels best and cost's the least.

dumb comment. you make it sound like kawis are rare or something. there are just as many of those on the street as the gixxers. you just dont notice them as much because nobody cares about them.
