Im thinking of making the jump and getting a 750. After a couple track days and a year or two of riding on the street. I want a bigger bike - is it necessary? No but its a want. My.gf has a 600 gsxr and I enjoy it.


The 750 and my 636 look very similar on paper. Will I.notice any difference in the power band?

I've owned an 05 636 and 08 GSXR 750. The 636 has more low end but the 750 has better top end. And to answer your question you'll notice the power band is a lot better on the 750. You can't go wrong with the GSXR 750 come with mode selector, electronic steering damper and pretty smooth suspension.

my 09 will walk purposeinlife 750 at the track, and keep pace with the 1000's on the straight (even managing to pass some older ones). Fuck is she fast!

Thanks. Is the 750 much responsive? Why did you get rid of it ?

I still have the 750 and I've sold the 636. The 750 to me is more enjoyable to ride and better responsive in the higher rpm range then the 636. I've also owned a 2008 CBR600rr and thing was a blast to ride compare to the 636. Then again if your wanting more power your better off getting a liter bike. My next bike will be a 3rd or 4th gen zx10:D

The only 750's I have ridden that felt better than my 636 were 2011 and up. But at this point why not get a 1000 and put it in a lower riding mode (cuts the power some until you are used to it)

Try to ride one first.

Or how about my 600 has a built engine from a ama pro racer:cool:

but op I would stick with 600. No need to jump up to a bigger bike...a 600 is more then enough on the street.

^ it's not about need :).

If you are thinking of bumping up, I don't think a 750, or even the 848 would be a big enough bump for the OP.

Just saying.

I enjoy my 636 more than my GSXR750. I would just keep the 636, or go 1000.

There's so much more to consider than just displacement. ergos, suspension, just to name a few.

I love both my bikes, for different reasons. but if I could only have one, it's be my 2011 cbr 1000rr. sorry kawi!
