i would just like to know why the zx9r wasn't included. its stock horsepower is just as much as the 954 but with 54 less cc's. with the $1100 dollars you save on the 9r you could easily drop 20 or more pounds, add an extra 7 or so horsepower and have money to spare. You would also have a comfortable bike. And if you REALLY wanted to level the field. add a 98 cc MUZZYS big bore kit and you will smoke em all. By the way I own a '02 9r and the 954's and R1's still cant hang light to light!!!!!
Is anyone else tired of the "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday" sportbike philosophy? What wins on the track seldom makes for a good street ride. Let's start buying what we like, what fits our tastes and disregard editor's picks.
