I have never seen those before. They seem to be pretty effective.

Looks smashing, not sure how have you managed to keep away from the urge.
And, yes the 750 (from having ridden a couple) does offer the best of both worlds, kawasaki should have kept on with the zx7.

Default buying advise : GSXR 600 OR & 750

i had posted a thread a bout 45 days back saying im about to buy the gsxr 750 and then it bombed because i couldnt get financing from the bank.

well ive finally gotten the cash and should be able to pick up the bike on cash

here is the issue i dont have enuff to go for the 750 i can only manage the 600 though my heart is all for the gsxr 750

what can u tell me about the difference in these 2 bikes. what are the power figures for them. what will i be missing if i dont buy the 750
should i buy thr 600 or wait and collect buy the 750


however if i dont buy now ill loose an amazing deal these are 07 models given on a huge discount. my folks will never agree to these bikes on full cash as they see a wiser investment in a car for that much money and its true i can tell them anything .the 08 models will be not in my wallet range

so help guys

From what i've read and briefly experienced:
you will be revvin the 600 slightly harder than a 750 to get into the 'fun' mode, and riding a 750 would be a shade easier in city traffic conditions thanks to the more available torque in the lower rpm band.
But all said and done, if this is your first biggie just get the 600, you may not even feel that difference and it may not be worth all that wait, especially at those 07 prices.
The red & white combo was a 07 scheme right??

A couple of kgs at dry weight and few bhp is the difference in numbers. At novice level, there's hardly a difference you're gonna be able to tell between a 600 and a 750 with similar characteristics.
If anything, the 600 may just help you to take corners better which will teach you a lot in the long run.
If you can afford it, get the 750, if not the 600 is most likely to rock your world for ATLEAST a couple of years.

This depends on the mad nut riding the bike. I got bored with my 600 within a couple of months. Of course it wasnt a superbike but was way better than one on the street.

You cannot legally import any of the above two motorcycles as they are below 800 cc, unless ofcourse they're used and brought down on Transfer of Residence.
The gray market gixxer 600s (actually any of the jap 600s) sell between 6.5-7.25L, depending on the source you're buying it from.
The 750 would probably be another 50-1L, again depending on the source or purchase.

Upto 160/180 kmph there'd be hardly a difference hwo a 600 adn a 750 would accelerate, infact 600s are certainly good and stable till say 220-230, though they maxx out a quite a bit above that.
One thing though, don't buy a bike based on what people would think about it, which bike you're comfortable with should be a deciding factor. A confident rider on a 400 is a lot better than a terrified one on a 1000.
Mate, you've got some decisions to make, keep us posted

the main thing of concern is the mech at suzuki here is a indian chap who tells me the 750 is a much sturdier bike than the 600 hence better

well its your choice if you want to listen to people who have actually ridden and experienced both bikes (like manson) or to some mechanic guy who says the bike is "sturdier". Why do you need a superbike to be more sturdy? Are there too many potholes where you live? Or are you going to be stunting the bike?

Ananth,

the bigger bike typically gives you better torque making it easier in traffic. I got bored out of my 750 pretty quick and jumped on to the liter class, primarily the bike felt a lot safer on the freeways. My personal feeling though.
