Best bike for me

Ive been riding a kawauki ninji 500cc for about 2 years and im looking to upgrade to a bigger faster bike. Will a 750cc be to big of a jump, i just dont want to have a 600cc and be dissapointed with the power. These are my line ups in no order. Which is best for me( im guessing that this will be all over the map but lets see.)

Kaw 600/636
Yam r6
Suz Gsxr 600/ 750
Trim 675d
hon cbr600rr

Considering we really know nothing about you, it'd be hard to say what your next bike should be. IMO, some may agree or disagree and it all in the end depends on the rider, a 750 wouldn't be too big of a jump. Hell, some could pull off jumping to a liter. It just all depends on the responsibility of the rider and how much experience has been gained.

You really can't go wrong with any of those sportbikes these days in terms of performance and reliability. My advice would be go sit on them and see which is most comfortable to your riding style.

A 600 not having enough power? I kind of doubt that since you will never get it all down on the road anyway. Other than that go with what Vipes said. Sit on'em and see!

Go with a F4i 600 Honda or the all new CBR600 RR that is the best 600 ever!

if you must go with a 750 the best one will always be the suzuki, and the new one is awesome dude!

Hang around some older riders and learn from them, and ride with them to learn how to stay alive on the streets, riding no matter how old you are is always a learning experiance, and experianced riders know to be willing to learn more.

Never ride in the center of the 2 track in the road it's called
"the oil drip dust and nail groove" right where every motor drips it's oil and all the dust and debris collect, I watch so many harley riders ride right in it and riders who have not learned about it's danger.

Ride with a strategy of self preservation! It's you the bike your riding and the road and it users who might kill or mame you!

Learn to ride in both of the tire tracks and when to choose wich one is safer for other people to see you, such as when approching a hill you are generaly safer when in the right track as you crest the hill because of the other vehicles in the oncoming lane could be over the double yellow and hit you, I have seen so many harley riders ride side by side over hills and oncoming vehicles almost hit them, you think they would learn that strategy and stagger themselves as well.

Riding in the Right Track also allows Oncoming Traffic to see you better when somebody in the Oncoming Traffic is About to Pass vehicles, the may jump out and not see you when your in the Left track, so many riders stay in the Left track when Oncoming Semi Trucks are coming towards them, this is downright stupid!! they are asking for trouble in the form of wind gust, a flying rock or debris, or a miscalculation of the oncoming truck drivers wheel.

Self Preservation Tactics must be paramount when riding a motorcycle, just use common sense and learn from other Smart Riders who can teach you something new!

Get a 2007 suzuki 750 gixxer dude and have fun!

Also when riding in the Right track if their are people coming off side roads to your right or backing out of driveways then consider switching over to the Left Track so they can see you better or sooner, constant awareness of where to be seen better and sooner.

Easy dude, get a 05,06 ZX-6R. The extra 36cc's of displacement make a huge difference. I haven't even begun to squeeze all the performance out of mine yet and I'm far from being bored with it. Theres nothing better than outbreaking or getting a better drive out of a turn and passing a liter bike on the track!
