1000RR v 954

As so many think the 954 is the best blade made, I have had one and have just bought a 1000RR on a 05 plate, this bike (to me anyway) handles better and is quicker, how do people rate the 05 blade against the gixer K5 - K6 models as they interest me when the time to change comes around

Re: 1000RR v 954

K5 1000 is the best bike I've owned. Loved it.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: 1000RR v 954

Intersted in this as i own a 929..Was the 954 really much much better? It does look a bit sleeker yes but performace wise was the extra 26cc worth it?

as far as I know it's also a bit lighter, has more efficient injectors, and a few other improvements. I did a lot of research on em when I was shopping for mine

Re: 1000RR v 954

Got a 954, had a 05 and a 07 1000 fireblade, also had a k5 gsxr 1000. Although the cbr1000rr has more bhp, to ride it against the 954 it does not feel like it, I still prefer the handling and looks of the 954 over the 1000rr.

Gsxr 1000 k5 has a fantastic engine, with loads of grunt, after riding this, it made the 954 feel like a 600, if your looking for some fun go for the k5 over the 1000rr, much more exciting ride. Being a Honda man I hate to say it.
