Z_Fanatic It's not really just that, gix 750 is probably really peaky up top compared to Katana, and weighs much less. The HP figures are very optimistic, but gixxer does put out more at the rear wheel.

97 Kat for example:

85 Gix 750:

All I could find were these sites:

http://www.home.aone.net.au/csd/Suzuki/GSXR750.html

Looks like you're right. The Katana has about 86 hp while the 750 has around 100. I would still put the overall performance of the Kat above the GSXR though. 12 years is a big difference in technology on bikes.

spicersh My guess would be that they are probably pretty close to being the same, but if I had to guess at one being faster I'd guess the Katana simply for it being 12 years newer.
