Now no one will want the Honda. So when I go to buy one next year, they'll be cheap like the 954 is!!

Don't write the Hondas off yet. Lap times are also important numbers.

I'll have one any day. Even if it is 30lbs over weight. I'd just put it on a nice diet

RRW hates hondas so no surprise there. But the dyno numbers are pathetic.

I agree that the 1000RR is an ugly duckling, but I think my 929 is among the best looking sportbikes made.

The 1000RR wasn't last in torque at least

I still say wait until they are all pooled together to rag (full evals). Some people like to beat up on Hondas while others like to beat up on Yamahumpers.

Re: All 4 new 1000's on the dyno on same day.

I'm not surprised at all. Kawasaki was making decent power from their 899cc ZX-9s and they have always been able to make strong engines. What's interesting to note on that graph is that, despite being a year old, the Suzuki still has the most usable power. It's not up until about 9k that the ZX-10 starts pulling away. These were taken for one bike from each manufacturer, and it's possible that one was a "weaker" engine while another was stronger. It might be more accurate to see an average taken from, say, 20 bikes of each kind, and then overlay those averages.

I'm sure they're all going to be good bikes and anyone who wants one probably won't go wrong with choosing whichever bike they like best by looks. For me, it would probably be the Gixxer or the ZX-10. If I could agree with one thing that I've read from Max McAllister, it would be that most if not all bikes today aren't hamstringed by power. Their shortcomings, rather, are almost always related to their suspension and setup.

ugh, I'm red green colour blind, so I can't tell between the two.

Be fast or be last.

Just got the new RRW---the 1000RR was at 155, the ZX-10 was 161, GSXR1 was 150, the 180hp R1 WAS 151

they actually had a very objective review---on the bikes --reading between the lines on track only(w/street tires)----ZX-10, 1000RR---big gap---GSXR/R1
