Re: New Fireblade and R1 video review
I still need to ride one. The bike is geared up two teeth in the rear and that will make it feel snappier off throttle at all rpms. I am seeing dynos coming in and this bike is making 145 rwhp. To me its the ugliest of all four right now too, (i did see on in the dealership they dont get better in person). I would imagine the ride being very differant and i am sure it is a blast to ride. I wont buy one thats for sure, maybe in three years when the newest crossplane is built. I would be much happier with a honda v4 thats for sure!
That d mode selector is like installing a quick pull throttle.
Take the blade, give it a hrc quick turn, and gear it up two teeth on the rear and ride to two, BLADE hands down.
