Are proddy lap times usually faster than 600cc supersport?

The difference between the R6 and GSXR 750 is so much that there's not even .10 of a sec. different around a track in stock trim... you go fast and win races in corners not straights.

Since torque is directly related to horsepower, there is no way that your Harley can have more torque than the GSXR1000. Sorry - simple law of physics.

This is the practical commuter bike I've been looking for! I knew Suzuki would pull through.

Just one more person that never used a Mac - AND has a lot to say about them. I use Macs AND PCs and the Mac is a far more stable and easy to use platform. Macusers use their machines more and work on them less. 'Macintosh for productivity, Linux for development, Windows for Solitaire.'



As far as the noise being made over a few horsepower, most riders can't use more than about half the capabilities of these machines. I've kept up with some of the mid-nineties versions of these same bikes you guys are arguing about through the twisties on a K1100LT BMW. Somebody that knows how to ride while riding a 5 year old bike can embarass a squid on a newer, more powerful bike. And this can be done without passing, just stay right on their butt no matter what they do



The squids that are going to ragdoll into a ditch are easily picked out of these letters by their ignorance. Some people think it's evolution, I think it's ignorance.

If you really cared about your passenger, you'd buy a bike with a usable pillon instead of EITHER the R-1 or the GSX-R. Unless you think it's really funny to have your friend/significant other fall off the back...

Dude, get real. I took my Shadow 600 (35 hp, baby) over the top of the Medicine Bow mountains (12,600 feet) with 40 lbs of luggage and it handled just fine. But somehow a 90 or 110 hp machine is insufficient? You really need 145 hp? How did anyone EVER get over the mountains before 2001?
