With my new-found awareness about things, I can't help wondering how the Burgman 400 would have fared in this comparison.

You got it right. This spring I rode my new GSXR1000 in the Black Hills. My buddy brought his new GSXR600. After a couple of days we swapped rides. Riding twisty roads all day, I'll take the 1000. Call me lazy. By the way, buddy traded his 600 on a 1000.

The 750 makes more torque then the 675 at all RPMs.



That's looking at MO's dyno of the 2000 GSX-R 750 though.. It's possible the new one has less torque at RPM but more likely IMO that it has more torque everywhere then the old one.



I gotta ride a 675.. I'm guessing it just feels like it has a lot of torque due to the triple being so smooth at low RPM and very good EFI mapping at small & medium throttle openings. Quality mapping makes any bike feel a lot more torquey IMO.

Default Hey Ole, which would you track with?

If your hawk gt were brought up to current sv power, and with suspension to match, which would you rather ride on the road or track?

Same power and suspension ?

Easy choice ... the Hawk

- IT IS TINY (like the 675).



That has always been on the project list - getting the Hawk "up to track spec", but without huge amounts of money and questionable reliability, I don't see the hawk ever approaching the HP and TQ that you can get from a stock SV .... and besides, I've got the 675 for track days !
