Re: 09' 600 vs. 99' 900RR
i have a 2002 cbr 954 and was traveling around the island with this guy on a 2007 cbr600rr last year on May 19, 2009. we traveled for 3 days last year and raced off and on all three days. we did 2nd gear roll on's, 3rd gear roll on's, then 4 th gear roll on's. we did this off and on so many times, reaching speeds of 220km an hour that finally, we just got bored of doing them. in every single case--which were too many for me to even begin to count--i could not beat the 2007 600rr.
now remember, i live on an island that has no speed limits!! No police to chase you!! This is not AMERICA nor EUROPE. this is an island where your free to go as fast as you want as long as you don't hurt or kill anyone but yourself. So, believe me when i tell you that this was no "Race to the next stop light!"
i was just as shocked as anyone else would be. so, yes, the new 600's are that quick. and again, i was shocked!
