Still only paint. It's not like anyone's rockin anything special under the plastic. Now if it was a high perf. option that would be different. All the same bikes guys.


If you can't run with the big dogs,
stay on the f@ckin' porch.

I'm sorry for my lack of maturity guys. I am coming over from the 600rr site where we keep things popping off. Seems the 1000rr crowd is to mature for that ish'.

I'll take this styling any day of the week.



On a serious note though, have you ridden a 12'? K, i see you had to get actual suspension on your ZX for it to feel good. Not needed on the 2012 CBR 1000rr. It's stock suspension is beyond excellent.

Mid-range. The CBR 1000rr has it. As I am not a Rossi impersonator who lives on a track, that matters.

The Dash makes riding it fun? Seems hella small and a little busy to me. I don't want LEDs going bonkers lighting up in my face unless there is something for me to actually take note of.. Further, who rides looking at their dash anyway? I can understand a redline indicator that is bright and gives you warning as you peak out the motor? But a whole ranbow assortment of colors all throughout the RPM band? Come on dawg, that's cheesy and distracting.


THE 2012's dash is a lot better imo :

One consistent screen w/ RPM lights that are adjustable and only come into the picture when they actually matter.

Sucks that your 08's were oil burners. However, the 12's aren't and I'd never think about putting that predator looking suspension and mid range lacking kawi between my legs. Congrats to you though. Seems you love it.
I had the rare chance of seeing one the other day and was intrigued until it blew past it in a turn and saw the front of that ugly thing in my rear view mirror. OFC the rider had on tennis shoes and later rev'd his engine at me at a stop light .. I guess getting pissed that I actually enjoyed the turn and knew how to lean my bike.
:eyeroll:
I almost forgot im on a Honda forum. If you ever owned both, ZX is just a better bike. But the CBR is almost as good, so I don't see why there is so much hate going on here.

08 1k. One horny motorcycle.

ZX is a nice bike although my 2008 10R had so much throttle vibration I hated it. Does the 2011+ have it as well?

The 2012 I have has a bit of a rumble. A bit different from my 600rr but nothing that drives me crazy. I was just concerned there was something wrong w/ it at first. After I cleared that up, I don't pay attention to it anymore.

It isn't hate. Such an abused word. I have no Honda Bias. The ZX-10 honestly just looks like sh*t. It's a fact. Emotion has nothing to do w/ it. Further, I highly doubt for a road bike it comes anywhere near the performance of a 1000rr.

P.S - I actually think the 600cc variant looks good :


Notice they didn't go full retard on its design.


The ZX-10 just seems like that fat girlfriend who gives good head that you don't want to be seen in public with
