If you have to go with a Japanese bike then how about waiting for the new Suzuki GSXR 1000, Honda 1000RR or the Yamaha R6? If you can't wait - R1.

I am a fan of the S1000RR if you want to stick with a sport bike or I would go with the Aprilia Tuono V4 if you don't mind the nakedish look. There is way to many GSXR and R things running around. Stick out from the crowd a little.

Primarily aggressive street, track days (more and more, hopefully)

If you asked me what I was getting at the end of owning the Daytona (assuming it was 2 1/2 more year, the terms of my loan). Yes, definitely. Unfortunately, riding 8k miles a year, I think I need the reliability of Japaneese bikes.

Good thoughts, definitely took that into consideration. I really don't want to lose the rest of this year (about 2 more months here in NY).

Easy decision for me - the Suzuki.

R1 is a good safe bet...

The GSXR 750 would also be a great option also, stock puts out the same or a bit more HP than a full system tuned 13+ 675R.

I would honestly try and wait for the new crop of bikes coming out this coming year... a proper 3 cylinder R6 should be pretty stellar.

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politcally correct.

If I were buying right now it would be the R1 all the way. Amazing bike for the amateur track enthusiast. Also they sound amazing. The 750 is very old and because of that is way too heavy compared to everything else now days. The number of 750s I pass on the straights is a pretty good indicator of how they come off the floor. Yeah they can be made super fast but it takes a lot more work than I've put into my bike.

The new R1 has some amazing tech built into it. That would be my choice over the GSXR everyday of the week.

If it were me buying a new bike, the FZ-10 and the Super Duke would be top of the list though.

I love the gsxr 750. That was originally my first choice. Smooth riding bike, plenty of power. Unless you absolutely need a litre bike.
