Re: Crashability - Honda vs. the rest
OK guys lets face it if you ride on the track the chances are you are going to low side the bike a few times, if you are lucky you will not high side it.
I have noticed that the Honda’s and Suzuki’s do alright in the past, but I have been told that this year there are a lot of New R6's being totalled in relatively minor accidents on the street, I have not seen any on the track so I can not speak for that.
So I guess what I am trying to say is I think that Yamaha's new technology that allows them to make frames 30% thinner and stiffer, may help the weight but is not good for those that crash it.
What do you all think about this, with the new power to weight race that is going on, are we shooting are selves in the foot for power to weight ratios we will never use?
If I was between the 600rr and the r6 I would pick the 600rr because in can go down and still be repairable as for the 1000rr and the R1 I have always been a Honda then Suzuki fan whether it right or wrong that is another opinion.
