The two-tone lowers really screw the pooch by flattening out the bike's natural upswept / high tail lines. Makes it look boring ... um, I mean, like a Honda.

Engine: From what I have seen, the Honda redlines at 11.5K. The Yamaha reds at 13.5K and makes peak power at 12.5K. Both Kawi and Yamaha are more oversquare than the Honda. This ain't conclusive, but I am betting that Honda will be the lowest power bike again. Of course, all things are relative, since they will all be stunningly fast.

Then there is the aesthetics. Not only is the Honda the homeliest, but it has the dullest graphics. I had a red 99 F4 and a friend had a green 98 6R. I was totally invisible, whereas he couldn't have garnered more comments if he rode around naked.

I know, there is more to moto than stares, but admit it, we all want to look cool. The CBR1000RR does not look cool.

And once again, the Euros get the cool red/white/blue colors. Note to American Honda: Red, White and Blue are pretty popular here in the USA.
