2013 Repsol-yes might be my next bike!

Soo I'm fighting between the new Repsol and the new gen 4 zx-10r. Having never owned a blade before I'm kind of skeptical as I can't personally compare the two. The ninja was def not easy for me to wheelie at lower speeds without clutching it up. I'm assuming the blade is much easier.

I do think being mainly a street rider ill enjoy the blade more.

The CBR powerband is much better on the street. Even after the 10 gets the famous "flash" it mostly gains up top. Dynos prove this. The 10 is a super track bike but the street ain't the track. I know you already know this.

My cbr will power wheelie almost to a fault if thats what you're looking for. Esp with a slight gearing change. Around town it blows by most anything cause its monster mid is that strong. If you plan on doing 180 runs routinely it will lose yet how valuable is that to the average guy? You made the best choice for your plans.

Thank u. I don't plan on racing or riding above 120 very much cuz that's just not how I ride. I do believe I will finally become a blade owner. I did however ride an 07 blade and let my buddy ride my zx-10 and he hated it and I loved the blade. Soo I'm kinda excited. Now just to decide on which color although the Repsol looks like its gonna be it.

Love the Repsol colors with the new fairings, but it's a shame the 600rr comes in a Repsol scheme for 2013 too...

What's the deal with the Repsol 250? That's like painting a Prius, Lamborghini Red and putting the emblem on it.
