I currently ride a jetted and piped 03 FZ1. I am thinking of eventually adding a true sportbike to the stable eventually. I hear the R6 handling is awesome. Will the handling difference make me not regret the power output of the R1. I do like the torque of the FZ1. Seems to give you a nice pull while staying somewhat legal. I am pretty decent with throttle control with the FZ1. Maybe a 750 would be ideal? Just curious what everyone thinks.

For me that option would depend on where you live and what kind of riding you do. If you do alot of riding in the mountains or canyons I would go with a R6. Also if you plan on doing alot of track days I'd go with the R6. If your not going to put the handling to use and don't do track days then I'd go with the R1(I live in FL so we don't have turns around here). Don't get me wrong, the R1 is perfectly fine on the track. But you will have plunty of power and handling with a R6 for the track. The R1 can be alot to handle power wise.
