Question 98 CBR 900RR vs. 98 ZX9R vs. 97 SRAD 750

Hi all,

I'm thinking of getting my first "big" bike (I've been riding 400cc sport bikes for several years now) and am choosing between a 98 CBR900RR, 98 ZX9R and a 97 SRAD 750 (can't afford brand new yet) Can anyone offer their inputs on these bikes? I'm kinda leaning on the ZX9R, is it a good bike?

Your comments will be much appreciated... thanks!

Unless the names are different in the Philipines DO NOT call the 750 a SRAD. I'm gonna guess it's a GSXR 750. Seriously but still


I'd go with the ZX9, I just never thought that much of the late 90's "flex tuned" 900 rr's and the 750 is great but not much down low. The ZX9 has power everywhere, comfort, and very good handling although the other 2 choices may be a little lighter on the control pressures or flickability.

Thanks for you posts guys. After much consideration, I did get the ZX9R. For my height (5'11") it had the best riding position... very light too!
