Default gsxr 750 vrs 1000 k1 and compaired to the 1100w's

been talking to a few lads on these bikes the k1, and so far I heard there is 2 schools of thought,
one is the 1000 is a heap faster, much better acceleration and the 750 be like the bandit 12, I agree on the former but not the latter
the other says she is a mighty bike and there aint much diff bar the top end,

whats the real craic between the 2,
motorcycle specs online puts the
dry weight on the 750 at 166kgs , the bandit is nearly 230
dry weight on the 1000 is 170 ,195 wet
power on the 750 is 140hp @12500,,,,,,rear wheel
power on the 1000 is 160hp @ 10800,,,,,,,, rear wheel
standing 1/4 mile 10.5 sec on the 750
standing 1/4 mile 10.4sec
top speed on the 750 280km/ph 174mph
top speed onmuch,00 290kmph 180mph

by the looks at that there doesnt seem that much , the k1 750 has more power than my old gsxr 1100 which weighed in at 250kg, nearly 90kgs less than the 750
power 137hp @ 10000
1/4 mile 10.5 sec
top speed 262kmph 169mph, I never went over 250kmph once or twice but there was more left in her


how accurate are them figures , got off wiki and confirmed on http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za

them max hp are a pretty bold statement, and I seen dyno sheets of said bikes the 750 and 1000 in newer models and they were not putting nowhere that on the rear wheel

The 1000 has miles more power all throughout the rev range than the 750. If you wide open throttle both in nothing but a straight drag race there won't be much in it until 140mph or so. If you try a roll on in any gear the 1000 will rape it unless the 750 is at the very top of the revs and in the right gear. A 750 is more like a 600 than a 1000 in that it needs revs to get really going.

A K1 750 makes about 125hp at the wheel and the 1000 is in around 140.

cheers batman, " their won't be much in it until 140" feck the bandit takes a bit to get her to there and there ain't feck all left so that's good news as far as im concerned. yep them power figures look more believable, I dunno know where they get them factory power figures from and at the rear wheel not the crank too.

and compaired to my olkd gsxr1100 the 750 seems much more powerfull and nimble to to mention the weight difference

The 1000 will feel a good bit mire powerfull grunt wise but the 750 I reckon 90% of the time is more fun.
Yeah you may have to work it a bit more rev wise but the handling on any injected era 750 is fantastic.
Plus you wont be as afraid to give it the beans compared to the 1000.

The reality is both are good bikes so whichever you find clean, unmolested and in good nuck go for.
Neither will disapoint....

Availability of torque is what would be felt or missed between the two.
Me I'd go thousand, but when on the boil the 750's gotta be more engaging, but I'd go thousand.

I agree completely buy is the factor I down to the last brown penny on the bike , the 1000 alll I could see were newer models like the k5 onwards, I did not see one k1,2,3 for reasonable money, but like the bro above said she feels lighter and youd be less afraid to give her a bit more grunt if you ger me but your bang on

i used to own a k1 1000. great bike...and rode the 750 plenty fast enough ...how often will u really need 160 or 170 mph... but for everyday normal ish riding the torque of the 1000 makes it easier riding....you will get sick of revving the nuts off the 750 ...and generally the larger cc bikes have an easier life better for reliability....

your not the first to mention that about the high revving just to make it around the town and normal everyday use, food for thought

If money is a concern then go for a clean fi srad 750. I rode a very sorted one yrs back and bar my old rsvr it remains one of the best handling machines ive ever sat on.

i own an Fi SRAD and have to say its a great bike for a rip and when i cut my sportsbike selection from 4 to 1 it was the one i kept (the other 3 where all 1000cc TLS/TLR/R1) not ridden the newer ones so cant say what they are like and also if i feel i need grunt ive a GSX1400 for that (still got an 1100w as well mind )

A K1 750 makes about 125hp at the wheel and the 1000 is in around 140.

I had a k1 750 it made 138 at the wheel.
I also had a k1 1000 which made 159 at the wheel.

Can't comment on how reliable those figures are as I've come to realise the said dyno may let's say be optimistic

Ignore those BHP figures. They're bullshit.
The thou is the better bike by far.

Have you ever owened bigger bikes than the 400?
If not get the 750, its a big enough jump.

By all means go and buy a 1000 but I reckon master a 750 then move up at some stage.
Ive owened a k6 750 and it was one of the nicest bikes to drive Ive ever been on.

I have a 1000rr now and still think some days the 750 would be better suited to most riding.

The k6 has a slipper clutch and gear indicator as standard which most 1000s didnt get till 2007/08.

Sounds very optimistic. My 09 r1 made 165 on one dyno and 180 on another! Although full system etc would add a bit

Jogs dyno was always stingiest, cawleys in cork a touch more and dannys the most. All irrelevant, its the before and after traces that matter.

Those figures are probably guesstimated crankshaft figures. If they're RWHP figures then the dyno was probably calibrated for customer satisfaction.
