CBR1000RR vs CBR600RR

Well after riding the CBR1000RR on the street for a while now, all I can say is it is
a fantastic street bike, way better than the CBR600RR.

The CBR1000RR is way more comfortable than the CBR600RR, and you can relax with the gear changes, with the CBR600RR you have to change gears in a precise pattern to have power avaliable to move into a space if you need too.

I love the way you can bilp the throttle on the CBR1000RR, a quick short twist,
and it is right there.

No more geeting off the bike after 30 mins to get feeling back in the butt.
But a corbin seat would fix this on the CBR600RR.

I also think that the 1000cc power issue is over hyped, the CBR1000RR is fine below 5K, very manageable, very linear.

I have not yet taken it to the track, but as a street bike, great.

James.

Well both are fantastic bikes and both have there strong points and the right person on a 600 would school 90% on a 1000 in the twisties.

True. However, the *right* person on a 1000 would school 90% on a 600 in the twisties.

Not so sure about that, in the turns 600's have an advantage they don't have the power that the 1000 does but they can get into a turn quicker.

The 1000RR is definitely a better street bike cuz of the torque but it is so much easier to initiate a turn in my old 600RR. I'm hoping upgraded suspension would alleviate that problem on the big porker.

That's not always true. Goes back to Bartman's saying... the RIGHT person can turn in that 1000 just as easy as a 600. Just gotta lift some weights...

Life is all about taking risks... why not take a few?
