I'm really sorry about correcting your spelling, but it is the second time in one thread. It's "Hayabusa" not "Huyabusa". It may be true that the 9R won't win at the track, but how many of these bikes will actually ever be on a track? I'm a big fan of Honda, but if Kawasaki has built a better streetbike that is in the same size/displacement category then it should be given a fair chance. I think MO just HAD to get their shootout done so they could scoop the paper magazines.
