so im in the market for a new street ride, and these are the two available in my price range.. and this is between only these two bikes, so no need to bring in others oh and i know neither of these bike's is "to much to handle".. i consider myself to be a fairly experianced rider
the closest thing i've ridden to the 750 is a 2001 gixxer 600, and that was on the track and absolutly loved the power and handling of the bike. i havn't had much experiance on an r6, besides on a 2001 and that was for maybe 20 minutes.. but nonetheless, i also loved the ride!
some specs on the two bikes
01 gixxer 750
- yosh slip on
- broken in the conventional way (easy method), never redlined, regular oil changes 3,000k
- 10,000 km
- hindle slip on
- broken in the hard way
- 4500 km, 3 oil changes
both bikes are basically bone stock minus the slip ons for each. both bikes have been babied their entire lives. both absolutly mint, garage kept, etc.
im just wondering if you guys have any pros or cons regarding these bikes..
looks dept, i definatly like the look of the r6 alot more, love everything about the bike. it has been broken in the hard way by a yammi mechanic.. but than again, is taking it easy and never redlining a bike a bad thing?? im sure it can be.
i definatly need to take the r6 for longer ride, really see what she's got.. but i know im going to like what i find..
so help a bro out, at 19.. this is the hardest choice i've ever faced in my life
