For your kind perusal, ladies & gents. Thoughts??!

Certainly muddies the water a bit when I'm considering buying an 899...

There is no doubt that the GSX-R 750 is a well balanced, very refined bike. I still would take the 899 over the other two. Read multiple reviews from different sources. I stick to British bike mags exclusively now because there seems to be way too much bias and too many conflicting statements in the US mags.

Always laugh when I read reviews from these guys! Not sure why I bother....

Certainly wouldn't be trading mine for a Suzuki!

Funny I feel that about some Briish mags..I know MCN had a comparo earlier on that i thought wasnt comprehensive enough. Sportrider make a good case.. Im not about to run to the shops and get a Gixxer 750 because of this, quite happy to run with my Striple R. Having never owned a duc, I'm ready to give up my 675 + a bucket of cash for the 899 but not unless I'm positive that it will spend more time outside in the twistys than inside of the dealers garage!

I usually stick to Bike and Fast Bikes, I'm not a fan of MCN. If you already have a Street Triple R, you've got one of the most enjoyable bikes to ride available today. I absolutely love that bike. Honestly when I thought they were going to total my Duc after my recent accident, I was planning on a Daytona 675R. There's just something incredible about that 675 triple, it just revs from anywhere. If you want to make the jump from a user friendly bike like the Street Triple, I highly recommend test riding the heck out of whatever you are thinking of replacing it with.

I had a 2004 GSXR750 for a little bit, I also test rode a 2013 GSXR750 when my wife was looking for a change. Seriously, the K4 with 42,000k's on the clock rode about the same as a brand new one! She ended up with a 636.

I changed from a GSXR1000 to a 899.

Love it, would never go back.

Character, noise, characteristics of bike, electronics package, the fact that the bike attracts attention (ok possibly a negative ).

If you havent had a balls out inline 4 cylinder sports bike, then try one. Expect a ruthlessly efficient machine, but one that doesnt stir my soul (4K service intervals too).

It's no secret that the editor of Sport Rider has a long-time feud with Ducati, and will be buried in his casket at death with a Gixxer 750 at this side. Nothing too shocking here. Funny they always mention the cost as a negative on the Ducati, but they never look at the actual cost of ownership. Both the MV and Gixxer will be worth less than half of what someone pays for them in 3 years. The 899 meanwhile will have great resale value, and it's not uncommon for a used Ducati Superbike to be selling for more than half of its original MSRP 5+ years down the road.
