Errr....I don't know about "proud", but I'll feel vindicated if the R1 ends up making more power than the Honda, anyway. I'm having doubts, though - I've heard one rumor of a pre-production bike that made just 150 at the rear wheel (which is only on par with the Gixxer). Another rumor says the R1's release will be delayed until April. My guess is that the Honda's going to have ~155 at the rear wheel, so it'll be interesting, anyway.

Of course, I think we all know a few HP here or there doesn't mean one bike is "better" than another. With streetbikes, it's a "total package" thing - and good news for Honda fans is that traditionally, Hondas are very well-rounded, and usually score "best all-around" honors (or whatever the media outlet chooses to call it).

Nope - I'm not saying anything contradictory to anything I said in the past. My guess (which is as good as yours) is still that the R1 will make more RWHP than the 1000RR. I never said that (if it did), it would make (the R1) a better bike. This only became a sticking point because someone was running his mouth...er - fingers...about how the 1000R would best the R1's HP output, and I believe otherwise.

If you believe I'm waffling, you're not paying enough attention.

Thanks for joining the discussion! Your post was thoughtful and enlightening, if not exactly intelligent.

Well, it was pretty entertaining, if not sufficiently thoughtful, enlightening, and intelligent to be included in a discussion revolving around how much rear wheel horsepower a bike that MIGHT get released this summer MIGHT have versus another yet-to-be-released bike based on totally bogus claims by marketing departments...

All the '04 bikes will be released before summer.
The HP stuff is all speculation.
Speculation is fun - what else are we gonna talk about?

Funny post, though - I'll give you that!

"Scooch". That's a funny word, "scooch".
