Because of the extra torque, nothing to do with being lazy, just sometimes it's nice to be able cruise around at 3000 rpm with power to spare if I need to accelerate.
And yes, when the oppurtunity comes to use it, there's nothing like the rush from a 1000 at full honk.
I can appreciate all sizes of bikes, I can have as much fun on my wife's Bandit 400 as I do on my 1000. However in some ways it is a different kind of fun.
IMO the 750 has always been the best of both worlds, it's a shame that the class is going away.

Yeah, if honda ever releases a modern 750cc SS, it's gonna be bye bye 1000.
But to those of you who have never felt rush of 150+whp kickin you in the , you have no idea. Nothing against 600cc's though. I'd love to have one for track duty.
Ohh, and I voted for the power one.

thinking of boring and stroking the 636 a little bit and putting a spare zx7r sticker on the tail. 750 agreed 750 is the best of both worlds.

I have always owned 600's but have recently considered a liter bike and so many people have said there so much over kill. I don't really know if I need unlimited power considering I ride more on the street where it's much more likely to get me a hospital than the record books.
As I read already few people ever made me work hard to stay with them with me on my 600 and them on liter bike. Although a few was surpized when they realized I was still nipping at there tail.
For the right price though I think I would give a liter bike a try.

Who said I did it to walk away from a smaller bike? It wasn't me. I just stated that I modded and geared it now didn't I. Read a little more carefully next time.

I read it just fine, you also stated it after the fact of what I said. meaning in was in some form of a realashion to my post.. Also to prove my point, you stating you geared and moded your liter has nothing to do with this thread.

its ok tho, id be a little upset to if my big liter bike couldent beat a 600..
