it is actually other way around.
you can get away with lower rpm's on sv but not on gsxr1k.
try racing gsxr1k and let it drop to 4k rpm's and you will be left in dust 
since I race gsxr1k I let you on little have to use 1st gear on 
this bike in half turns at sears and all most all in Vegas.
try 2nd gear in those corners and you will think everybody has 40+hp on you
