Re: SuperBike

In the June issue of SuperBike magazine, they do a comparison of the litre sportsbikes (the Gixxer won by just a little, as it has in all of the magazines I've seen). It looks like they're selling a red & black Fireblade similar to the one I've got (2003), but check out the all-red tail section, and the silver hugger, along with the red cowl in lieu of rear seat. It also has a black front fender where mine is red.

They said that the Fireblade is awesome and 'it stood alone as the bike that required the least effort and the least respect to make you feel like a track God.'

Their only real complaint was 'jerky' fuel injection.

Re: SuperBike

Bwhip,
It's quite obvious, to those in the know, that the '03 R/B is the fastest. bestest 'Blade yet *

Re: SuperBike

Cool!

I love the UK rags, don't you? Yeah, I suppose it doesn't hurt our collective feelings that the Brits have a long standing love affair with the Fireblade...

Re: SuperBike

I have grown pretty addicted to the UK moto-rags, expensive though they are. I'm definitely going to subscribe through that Motor Sports outfit in Missouri, to save some jack.

And they certainly do love their 'Blades - it seems like every issue of every mag has something nice to say about them - maybe that's part of the reason I like those publications so much. They keep confirming the wisdom of my choice!

No question! It looks like it's doing 160 when it's standing still!
