Re: R1 won group test (MCN)

Looks like the bikes will be fairly evenly matched in power and speed.

Re: R1 won group test (MCN)

Yeah not much between them, seems like personal preference will have a lot to do with it.

That's interesting, the ZX-10 came last.

Re: R1 won group test (MCN)

there is always gonna be contradictive reviews on bikes, like remember when the new gix 1000 came out and MO still gave the R1 the win saying the 1000 was too much power ...

Re: R1 won group test (MCN)

R1 has a very tall first gear, and a substantial torque and hp deficit to the other bikes until 11k rpms!

I am currently deciding between the R1 and the 1000rr, and am now leaning heavily toward the Blade--which is fine with me as I love my current 954!

Re: R1 won group test (MCN)

I didn't know that BDA worked for MCN!

Anyway, that is just one mag's opinion
