not sure where this 122hp r6 is... sorry, but a gsxr750 will wax the r6 (the best 600 on the market).
the 636 kawi is also a factory effort racing against what are essentially support teams.
as for where the 750's have gone. they really priced themselves out of business. the rc45, r7 and ow01 i'm sure left a bad taste in a lot of manufacturers' mouths.
plus, suzuki builds the gsxr (until '04) off common technology and tooling, making it MUCH cheaper. r6's and r1's don't share many parts.
my guess is if the r1 wins in the showroom, and suzuki has to build a short stroke 1000, the gsxr750 may see it's final days. especially given that people are already voting for the smaller-sized 600's like the r6 and cbr600rr over the bigger gsx-r.
