Re: First Ride, CBR1000RR

Finally! Sounds good but only 172hp at the crank. I was hoping for 180-185. Luckily I don't get hung up on that. HESS was developed with Kayaba? I thought Kayaba was a Kwaker thing.

Anyhow. The whole package sounds really good.

Re: First Ride, CBR1000RR

"Posting a dry weight of 396 pounds and claiming 172 crank horsepower"

I'm already sick of the "Honda doesn't build sportbikes to be the lightest and most powerful" mantra about the new 1000RR, and that crap hasn't even started yet (but it's coming!). 396 pounds??? WTF??? That's almost 20 pounds heavier than the claimed dry weight of the 929, which we know was bullshit, so assuming 396 is bullshit, good grief it's gonna be heavy. I see Honda failing miserably in the consumer market with this bike.

A quote from the article....

"It rips, is a pleasure to ride and feels smaller and more compact than any stock full-liter machine this tester has ridden to date."

Well so much for that bullshit

Re: First Ride, CBR1000RR

but 396 lbs???

It'll probably be like the 600RR where you lose 30 lbs with an aftermarket Ti exhaust, I hope its the same for the 1000RR...

But even with that 30 lb (more like 25, though) reduction, it still weighs more than a stock R6. Put a Ti can on the R6 and the difference is even bigger (obviously).

Re: First Ride, CBR1000RR

I think this bike is going to be something special. Screw the numbers, I want to see how it rides.

The phucking RC51 pig POS is for sale, and I have never once touted any attributes of this bike over the 929/954/1000RR, so shut your cockhole.

i'm with you, sprint. Honda's goal with the Blade has always been to provide a well balanced machine.
