Not sure but I think his boos are because it may be 2002 before it's out.

I was booing at the delayed intro of the new 7R. i don't know why they would quit making 750s. A lot of superbikes are 750s, Kawi,Suz,Yam. I don't think the market for 750 would die if the SS was pulled. What would kawi and Suzuki use...maybe GSXR1000?? I can't wait to see the acual bikes.

The 750 class is not dead but it is withering. Yamaha provides the perfect explanation. They have the R1 which doesn't weigh much more than the R6. Those two bikes cover the needs and wants of most sportbike riders. Splitting the difference with a 750 doesn't make much sense because the differences aren't that big anymore and given the additional cost of tooling up to make a third sportbike. So they made a trick, expensive, virtually race-only R7 to run in superbike.

Honda doesn't make a 750 repliracer, Kawasaki seems to have its priorities elsewhere. Only Suzuki is committed to the 750. The other companies seem to have decided they can make more money by focusing on 600s and 900s or liter-bikes, and they're probably right.

i think there are people who want 750's, just not as many as there used to be when 600's were metal-framed bored and stroked 400's and open class bikes were heavy.

if you all would include the 1000cc v-twins in the 750 class (like racing organizations do in superbike and should in 750ss, of course it'd still be a suzuki cup race ) you'd see the class is better than ever. just nine years ago there was the 851, the gsxr750, zx7 and zx7r (which wasn't that streetable).

the 996, 900ss, rc51, the tlr/s, vtr1000, gsxr750, the zr-7 and zx7r, maybe even let the vfr800 in again, wow, what a strong catagory, with a lot of different kinds of bikes. and everyone big manufacturer has at least two models, except for yamaha, who's sitting it out and harley, and maybe someday they'll build a street-legal vr1000.

750's are surely not dead or going anywhere anytime soon. Heck, Suzuki could have brought their new 750 out and called it a 900 and no one would even know the difference without looking at the engine. Since it came out I have enjoyed listening to and reading all of the comments. It's amusing that a 750 is dead even with the R1, ZX9 and 929RR. If the 750 is running with them then we can only imagine what the GSXR1000 will do!
