The only problem with the Honda, is keeping the front end down.

And what's the reason for that? I'll give you a clue. It isn't horsepower.

I want a bike to keep my front end up lol. I was in a stunt crew when I had my 07 gsxr1000 and when I got the 08 10R I couldn't get the front end up and keep it up lol.

Umm let me go look where I read that at BRB.

Edit : it said 20% less HP than the BMW my bad. Got it wrong.

For all it's mighty horsepower my itty bitty Honda still out torques that bitch and would disgrace it on the street. Only place I lose is about 170.

I agree that the CBR's mighty midrange makes it king on the street...in my book that's exactly what I want. Were I to race a literbike (yeah right, anyone want to be my tire sponsor?) I would lean towards the Bimmer.

PS: Funny how some say that the S1000RR is butt-ugly. Was not the same thing said about a certain redesigned CBR back in 2008?

These bikes are strange cause you can see a bike and think "man that's ugly". End up getting one and then it's the sexiest non-female item on earth. Haha
