In theory the Gixxer 750 is the ultimate sportbike. Awesome power, Handling, and comfy to ride. The power difference between it and the 1000 has the 750 winning at the range that any of us ride and the 1000 only excelling at extreme top end. In my opinion i could give 2 shits if my bike does 190. Thats just stupid speed and how often do you do that anyway.
