Is there a big difference in the handling? Thanks.

I have gone from 600rr to liter bikes (aprilia and ducati). I then rode a friend's 600 after I sold my 1198. Couldn't stand it. It was cramped and the power just wasn't there for me. One thing to consider is your height and weight. I have another friend who is 6'3" 230 and the 1000rr is a big difference to him compared to his 600.

I weigh 158 and I'm 5'9" so the power for me in this instance is negligible. I prefer the bigger bike because it's more comfortable to me and I do have self control on the right hand. Just take it slow and easy at first and I don't think you will be disappointed.

Im getting in on this one. HOLY chit this 1k is fast. I have been away from riding for 5-years and It took me a month to start using the top end of this motor because its fast enough at 7-8000 rpms. Had a gxr 750, then a 900rr and now the 1k. Had to bring home my buddies zx6 the other day since its rebuild after a crash and HOLY COW is it slow and light. TOO light! I feel like im riding on air, no road feel coming back up to my po-po! No power or torque and it just sounds like a mad bumble bee! Dont get me wrong, bikes are like boats and HOT girls. Its doesnt matter which one YOU have just get one! lol. I could NEVER go back to a smaller bike. the 1k FEELS like a bike, it has GREAT input back to the rider, and it has a TON of power! What else do you need. I feel like these 1200's and 1400's are just way to big and bulky but the 1000's are just right. DONT DO IT!!

I've considered going to a 600 for the track. Last weekend during the riders meeting at a small/short track, the guy that runs the track day said, "raise your hand if you are on a litre bike... get out of the way when the 600s show you a wheel, because they WILL be faster in the turns." I passed him on the outside on the tightest turn on the track on our 3rd session.

I've traded bikes with my brother (600rr), and I swear I can ride my 1000 just as fast in the tight corners. Maybe it's just because it's what I'm used to, but I love the way my bike feels and handles. I have no regrets with the 1000rr.
