Too many nice bikes

how hard is it to decide on what bike to get i think ive whittled it down to 2 a 2008 cbr600rr looks awesome and is super light and nimble as fook.

then theres gsxr 750 bit more torque and power and supposed to resemble a 600

nice bikes

Lucas - you'll be happy with either mate, both are absolute crackers of bikes.  But having tested both,I found the CBR was more refined and smooth, which the gsxr was a bit more sharp (arguably, overly so - but I like it that way).

slow

yea ive been told both good bikes and read the same just cannot make mind up everything i read about gsxr 750 sounds awesome. but then read about 155kg dry weight and shorter wheelbase and the increase in mid range on cbr sounds really good as well

Lucas..

I don't think you would be disappointed with either of them..both great bikes.However i would lean towards the Honda..but i am biased......Ive had the pleasure of owning a few 600rr.:biggrin:

Id go...

...GSXR purely because it looks better imo. Don't like the underseat exhaust on the honda.

Well i have owned a CBR6 F version and that was one good bike, good for 160 odd top end and very comfortable, the RR version will stay with the Suzuki 750 but the Suzi is more race focused, whilst the Honda is also a race derived 600 it will have better handling qualities and hold its value longer.

At the end of the day it depends what you want, both are great bikes, slightly more power in the Suzi as its a 750 but the Honda 600 is a true 600. Nice choice to have, I currently have a Honda Fireblade 1000RR.....what a bike.:biggrin:
