Otherwise if there is no difference I will go Yoshi.

Honda: superior midrange, a huge plus for street riding.

Kawasaki: stomping top-end which is great for the track but less so for everyday real world riding.

You decide.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

Talked to the sales rep about the comparisons between all the Superbikes, they all agreed that the Honda power delivery is much better and mate it was great. I kid you not it was excellent, really smooth through all gears and power to use when I wanted it!! The sales dude rode an R1 with double underseat Yoshimura slip ons and he had to clutch it through the traffic and at low speed where as I could just idle through, although that will change when I fit the Akrapovic Raceline System.....slightly.

I was very impressed with the handling and nature of the bike overall, a non aggressive riding position as well, great ergonomics whereas the ZX, R1 and GSXR are very aggressive.

Hmm thank u. I have always been a kawi guy but the new blade just looks amazing to me. The wheels look awesome. I love the feel of the bike. Def felt better to me just by sitting on both. The zx-10 pulled me way down, I didn't feel very good on it but I'm afraid the honda Won't have the power I'm expecting, but then again it should have plenty.
