I was just watching the reviews made by Cycle News on TV. They reviewed the Ducati, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Honda 1000cc racers. In addition they added the GSXR750.
Gixxer didn't even place in the top three. It went to 1-Honday - for the new suspension and handling, 2 - Yamaha for the new suspension and handling and overall performance, then 3 - Kaw for the raw power and light weight.
The comments from the riders was that on the track the Gixxers shaked too much. But they did have the full range of power from the engine.
