Can't decide on zx14 or zx10...need help!!!

Hello gents,
I am currently a GSXR 750 rider who is finally going to step up to the big time. Definitely going to go with a Kawi. My Dad currently has an 07 zx14 with the full Brocks exhaust kit, power commander, and gears. I love this bike to death! He said he will sell it to me if I want it. The only reason I hesitate is cause it obviously doesn't corner as well as a zx10 would. One of my favorite things about the 14 is the awesome sound it makes! My question is, how would a zx10 sound with the same setup? Would it be anywhere near as deep sounding as the 14? I watched some youtube vids, but obviously you can't REALLY tell what it sounds like. Sound is a big deal to me. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated! thanks

P.S. I'm 26 years old with good amount of riding experience, so no need for the "how old are you questions" ha ha

I agree with Kaw A rab... ZX14 is more of a cruiser and great 1/4 mile bike. I usually make my bike decisions from the mechanic point of view - which bike would you enjoy working on?

ask yourself "what do I want " a sport tourer or a canyon carver, all depends on your riding style. Obviously the ZX-10 is a corner eating machine and the ZX-14 is not quite as nimble but obviously faster than the ZX-10,all depends on what you plan to do with the bike.

As proud owner of a 09zx 14 m black and green monster.... I would buy a real mans bike. Aint gonna get no better than the 1400. Its a little heavy, but that kind of badassness comes with a little extra weight. TOTALLY WORTH IT THO!!!! #Ilovemymonsta

Sounds nice for you. A buddy here recently upgraded to zx14 and he felt a lot better with it.
