Re: CBR1000RR vs R1 (Looks Alone)
After seeing them not side by side, but across a crowded room I voted R1. The tail of it isn't as good looking I don't think but the Yammie just looks more nimble than the big CBR. Perhaps it's the way that mid fairing envelopes the front wheel that makes the CBR look oafish to me. Reminds me of how the Hayabusa fairing does the same thing. R1 just looks thinner and quicker.
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
