I don't know, but I think when you buy it you should give Vash your phone number just incase he needs some spare parts.


Good luck with your choice, it's a great bike.

If thats your first street bike I would highly advise against it. Of course its your life, your money, so do whatever you want.
sure zx10 is a fun bike, but it is tempermental. Be carefull.



Oh, and no, its not all that comfy. I cant see riding more than 400 miles in a day on it.

Well i have to agree with vash.....these bikes are AWESOME! But they are very very touchy. They really arnt that must different than the 636 though.....my boyfriend had both and they were both great in their own ways. The blue ones are the prettiest though....

If I drive to fast then get the hell off my bike.

Its all about personal preferance. But generally speaking, a race rep is not going to be a comfortable bike. To me, the forward bend of the back, as well as the back bend of the clip ons are the most uncomfortable features of the bike. Dont get me wrong, I love it, but I'm not going to tell you its something that it isnt. And its definetly not a tourer.
I rode the K5 gixxer, and while it feels very comfortable sitting on it, riding is abit of a different story. The very low seat hight means that the pegs are closer to your butt, meaning some extreme knee bends. The clip on are also very close to you, which made me feel like I was riding a minibike. Once again, awsome bike, but comfort is not its strong point.

Comfort? Ha!

As far as the 1000 part, i know people get negative, but alot of what they are saying is true.These bikes are RACE bikes, they are not tame, There is no other vehicles that even compare, I rode/race dirtbikes for 6yrs, That in no way prepares you for getting on a new liter bike, I am not questioning how carefull you will be, I am not even saying not to buy one, that is your decision, you may never have an accident. But inexperience + liter bike, can be deadly, this is not arguable, just a fact. I have been riding sportbikes since 98, and I still have my hands full with the 1000, i cannot even come close to riding it to its ability, I am thinking about getting a 750, because I would actually probably be faster on a 750, because they are a little tamer, and can push it harder.


But, yes it is possible to buy a liter bike as a first bike and never have an issue, Is it smart? Hell no, no one can argue that.

I had a friend buy an 03 R1, Died 3 months later on it, have another friend bought an 04 RC51, crashed, then he bought an 05 gixxer 1000, crashed it, then he bought an 05 1000RR, and crashed it last month, all this within a yr. Have another friend who bought an 05 Gixxer 1000, had it a week, crashed it in the exact same spot the guy died on the R1, have another friend bought a busa, crashed it within 2 weeks of purchase. All of these were their first sportbikes.

Not saynig this will happen to you, just saying the ODDS are against you and to really think about what you are doing, there is no reason in the world a new 636 is not enough bike.

Just to ask, why would you buy a 1000 over a 600, curious to here why?

I may not know everything about somethings, but i know something about everything!
