I have a 99' 900rr with 15k mi. The bike is in excellent condition
All original bodywork, new tires, chain and sprockets.
I love my bike very much and I ride it allmost everyday with really nothing to complain about, it has plenty of power and is fairly comfortable.
but recently I have had a chance to ride some of the newer breed of motorcycles, 05 zx-10, 06 R-1, 06 636, 06 zzr. And I was really amazed at how well they all ride/drive, Like I said I dont have any complaints about my bike, but all of the newer ones felt like they had alot smoother of a ride, I dont know if its because they arent so bulky feeling sitting on them, or if its the fuel injection etc, but its really made me consider trading up for a newer bike.
I know that I wouldnt be happy stepping down to a 600cc bike, allthough they ride well the 9' still has too much torque for them to handle.
Ive been told that a new gsxr 750 would overpower the bike that I have now, as well as the other honda 9xxrr bikes, is this true?
the zx-10 was alot of fun to ride, i really didnt think it was that powerful until i snapped the throttle open a little, there is a very noticable difference in it and the 900rr I have.
the r-1 sped away and curved like a cadillac, but it didnt "seem" to have the low end grunt that my bike has, maybe its cause im not used to it I dunno, but I snapped the throttle open a few times, with no surprises at all?
Maybe the answer all along is just a new honda 1k ?
