600, vs 750, vs 1000

I was just wondering if someone has ridden all three of the Gixxer cc sizes. Cause I'm wondering a few things about them.

I kind of wanted to know which they thought had more bang for your buck... And if the 750 was worth bothering with instead of just getting a 1000.

Wait for the new 750 to come out! Or get the 600 now. The 1K has too much power for the street, and probably too much for the average track guy. The 750 is the more practical bike with the most useable power. You will be just as fast on the 750 as you would the 1K, if not faster! I know this may sound dumd, but it's very true. I ride a 05 1K and I love it, but if I had to do it over I would get the new 750. Just an opinion and you know what they say about opinions.

i would bet other then in a straight line, a 600 will be as fast if maybe not faster in the twisties/track then a 1000. w/ the same avg. street rider.

I've owned a gixxer 600 and a 1000, given the choice.. I'd of owned them both anyways to know what they were like, but I'd pick a 750 in the end.

TRUE,TRUE. I would personally chose the 750 because of the low end torque over the 600. But being my first bike-I would go with the 600, get some seat time, then think about the bigger bikes. But like I said before, that's just my opinion.
