A few listers have done just that, Im sure they let you know the differences
from their personnel experience. But from what I know of the bikes
The main differences are are, top end performance 180 verses 150mph and a
kick in the arse at 8000rpm, way more low down torque on the Gpz which is
where you need it for real road riding. The zzr feels and is a lot lighter.
More aftermarket goodies for the ZZR. Compared to modern 1000cc bike the
ZZR1100 is a soft sports tourer so is fine for commuting.

I've watched ebay for a good while now and you'll be lucky to get £1000 to
£1200 for a Gpz even in excellent low milage condition. Whereas a ZZR1100D
will be anywhere from £1000 to £2000 as they ran for 7 years.

How much difference would I notice if I swapped to a zzr1100 (1998) ?
Higher insurance ?
Still a good commuter or too powerful for traffic?

Not sure whether to spend best part of £1000 on old zx1100 or just 
upgrade for £1200 or so from ebay.
