R6 v's 750
I aint going to go into the dont buy these bikes cause your new malarky, your old enough to make your own choices.
Ok, having ridden the R6 and having owned 3 7506 (K6 & K7's). I can honestly say they are basically two different bikes.
The R6 as you found, delivers all its power in one short burst right at the top of the rev range. This is expected with the 600 class, but the R6 is a bit extreme. Do not think, that as this power is all high up it is going to make it safer for you and flatter your riding. It wont. To get the best out of the R6 you have to be 'on it' all the time. If you dont find yourself progressing to that level in a short period of time you will find this bike a right pain in the arse. Not only will you get frustrated by the power delivery (flat low down), you will also get pissed off with having to ring its neck every where to make any sort of progress. The suspension is set up very hard for a road bike, and you probably find that a bit tedious also on our shitty roads. The R6 was designed for one perpose really, and that was to clean up on the track. I have never ridden one on the track so cant comment, but by all accounts that is where they come alive, and make more sense.
The GSXR is a different kettle of worms.
It has been described as the perfect road bike. The handling of the 600's with the not far off power of the thous.
They are a much better road bike. Thats all I can say really. If money aint much of an issue, price in for an aftermarket can, a power comander and some dyno time...... Mine (on closed roads) would hit the 186mph on the clock, and would still be pulling.
Only downside with the Gixer is the build quality is suffering on the newer models. Things are being made to a budget, and the Suzukis seem to be showing the worst of it compared to others. Shoody electrics coupled with corroding items means a relatively new bike can look a bit rough in no time at all unless it is looked after meticulously.
Dont buy a 675... I got one. They blow engines like fook, have issues with rectifiers. And are made by a company full of fuktards.
Only other option are then Honda CBR600rr or the Kawasakis.
I cant comment on the CBR. I did own a 2003 one, but they have changed so much as of late. But Honda very rarely get it wrong, and they can be a good bike to start getting your teeth in.
Kawasaki do the ZX, which I am in the prosses of getting now. Nice neutral handling with a monster kick in the arse up in the rev range..... Im getting one, cause Ive never had a Kwak before. Nawt like a change eh?
Anyways... Its your choice.
But do us a favour. Use your head and be carefull.... Yes cars are easier to drive fast. Cause you got all the metal around you to give the confidence to push it..... You come off one of these mate, its gonna smart more often then not.
