They will pretty much be the same, most bikes are these days, just got for whatever you like aesthetically lol.

I have ridden the 08 CBR600 and it is awesome, the power feels great once the revs come up, the handling is very light and sharp and the brakes do a great job.

I'm sure either will serve you well though.

I have owned the GSXR600 and it was a great bike.

I was looking at both bikes as you are, and when you look at them side-by-side in person i believe that the GSXR has the edge.

That's basically all i based my choice on, as they are pretty similar to ride!

I know the GSXR had a slipper clutch standard as well - dunno if thats the case with the CBR though, i can't remember

GIXXER all the way.

I own K7 GIXXER 750. Have also ridden CBR600RR and NINJA 600 and 636.

CBR is a lot smoother and comfortable. But trackwise, GIXXER has the edge.

+1

Differences between bikes these days is so minimal. Buy whatever you can get the best deal on, what you feel most comfortable sitting on (both are comfy imo) and like the look of the most.
