Hey all

Forgive me, but this is my first post. I am debating over a new 910 or a used 750. The 750 might as well be new, seeing as it only has 700 miles. The mighty insurance man is going to have the final say in the whole ordeal though.

I am looking for feedback from owners. Do you like the mid pipe? Does it change the sound all that much?

I am coming off a 749 and the 910 I rode feels like quite the couch.

Thanks for the help!

tell us more about how YOU ride.... that might help us assist you in making the decision.

i love my 910.... the 750 didn't interest me, personally... but, many here LOVE that displacement. also.... i wanted the R version of the 910 because of the vastly-improved brakes and lighter wheels and the (probably won't have before i retire) exhaust

either way..... you'll LOVE the brute

I do some commuting weather pending, but mostly this is going to be my toy. The 749 was a PITA in traffic. In Northern Illinois we are slightly limited to elevation and curvy roads, but the ones we do have are a blast. My 749 was chicken stripless and I plan on the MV to be too.

I found the 910 throttle "switch" to be ... exciting. I am sure I could learn to ride around it, but it could be a little challenging in the beginning. From reading this board it seems that it can be ironed out with mid/pipe and PWRCMNDR. The power was FANTASTIC though. Made my 749 feel like a RS 50. I like the 910 and a lot of people on this board have great things to say.

If you like the 910 that is the way to go.

910R Is a fantastic bike to ride,handles ace, and a real looker,it does have its faults but you will live with them for the sake of the bike,with the cat gone and midpipes fitted the sound is different when you open her up she sounds great,but i bet proper race cans would sound even better ( i dont know on that score havent heard them) go for the 910R get the best naked bike ever.

sounds like the 910's are hands down a better bike. Any 750 owners out there that want to prove them wrong?

How is the sound with the stock header, aftermarket mid and stock slip ons?

I prefer the 750, but I'm not biased

It revs a little quicker (esp. with the midpipe), and absolutley screams to 13000rpm

Plus, the insurance is cheaper (being older and smaller cc)

Besides, aside from the Starfighter, Matte Black is clearly the coolest

Its pretty simple..........if you have a budget, get the 750 and save a few $$, if not spend a few more $$$ and get the 910.

750 is easier to ride and is a smoother bike. Vibration of the 910 is annoying...
910 has lot of power, but you need to be careful.

I don't think that either bike is a wrong choice.

When you rev her up the sound on the 750 is unbelievable. Around town, leave her in 1st from light to light, and heads turn your way. My friend has a 910 and at one point he suggested it was too much bike for him. I don't think he regretted buying, but around city streets, the 910 is probably an exercise in keeping it under control rather than having a blast. Well, that's my perception of things. Good luck choosing.
