F3RC vs. GSXR750.

My girl tried out the 2015 GSXR750 and it was the only bike that she could put her feet down to the ground on. Seat height is 810mm but very small saddle.

The F3 is 805mm but how is the saddle on these bikes? If it is wider than the Suzuki then she can't have the F3.
I don't want her to have a Suzuki......

How is the engine on the F3? I know the Suzuki is flawless with more HP than the bigger(!) F3 but she doesn't need 200HP for her riding style either.....

There are kits to lower the bike in any case. Engine is perfect, torque all around...
Ok, get her a Suzuki, and get yourself an F3, and hit the track. To be honest, I would not recommend the F3 for road use, it is rather a track-day bike. Just my opinion of course...

The F3 seat is very narrow near the tank.

I got my F3 lowered. Didn't affect the handling. Previous 3 bikes (for comparison) : RVF400 (keeping that), R1 (for 16 years) - the F3 is better in every respect than my 98 R1, YZF750.
I love the F3. Smooth power. Lots of fun.

Take a chance while you still got the choice.

Gsxr750 has 200hp? Always thought they were around the 150hp mark, same as F3 800. Last 750 i seen on a dyno put down 128 rwhp with pipe.

The 750cc has around ~150. 200 was what she didn't need

Thanks. I'll let her try it out at least. Her biggest fear is that she won't reach the ground.

Is there any OEM lowering kit @ MV?
