GSXR 750 review
|This is a review of my 2005 GSX-R 750....absolutely the best bike on the planet but not for beginers.|
Review of the GSX-R 750 submitted on 2005-12-30.
I purchased my 750 at the begining of last summer after riding some friends bikes....R1´s, CBR954, a GSX-R 600...they were cool and I was actually looking at buying an R1 when my friend mentioned Aurora Suzuki in Seattle would allow test rides. I´d been reading about the 750 and decided to give it a try-I´d wanted to test ride at some other shops but was told no. Well....once I got on that GSX-R that was it. I had a Bandit 600 and this was actually easier to ride.....and had power like my friends 2000 R1. Another friends 2002 r1 was faster but turning that was hard-this bikes turns with no effort. It was also faster than the 600...good low end. I´ve ridden it all summer (6K miles) and I have to say it is a great bike. I don´t recommend it as a first bike though. It is too powerful and more importantly it has both an abrubt on-off throttle response and the power hits at 9500 rpm like a freight train. Its light, easy to ride and the only thing I have had to do maintence wise is sync the throttle bodies. It would be a lot nicer with some hooks for straps-mine has an undertail and maybe it comes with them stock but I don´t know. The riding position is aggressive but comfortable and the lack of steering effort keeps your arms from getting burned out. I recommend getting an double bubble windscreen, the one on there is next to useless. The fairing is a pain to take off compared to the R1-they need to improve that. Also, my insurance is closer to that of a 600 than a 1000. Overall I would buy it over any other sportbike.
P.S. Buy frame sliders before riding home. My friend bought them and planned to put them on over the weekend. Dropped it on an overpass mid-week, before he had a chance. Ouch.
