What a group of fucktards. I closed the video when that dumb broad said it was boring and that it was a good bike for new riders.

Saying a 180 mph motorcycle is "boring" is the absolute finest compliment that can be paid to a race bike IMHO. It means that the bike lacks nothing, is fully developed, balanced and is easy to ride fast. What more could you want?

Ask yourself, what is the purpose of traction control, to make the motorcycle scary to ride at the limit or make it easier to ride at the limit? I'll take easy to ride .....e.g. "boring" any day.

BTW.. these magazines get paid to split hairs, magnify small differences between bikes, essentially make mountains out of mole hills. This is what sells magazines! Also, this is their opinion and only their opinion, all of this crap is subjective.

Truth be told there isn't a bad bike out there anymore and if I get outrun it's because the other rider outrode me, plain and simple.

I absolutely agree with you folks, the bike being "easy" is in fact a niche Honda's been utilizing for years...I really am happy with my decision to go with a Honda, really a bang for your buck kinda bike

02 Triumph Daytona 955i
07 Honda CBR 1000rr

I have 5k miles on my '12 CBR and I think it's a great bike and I'm glad I have. To call a great bike boring because it is too good is a ridiculous statement.

What a bunch of clowns. I was laughing at those fools "taking" those corners in the video. I kept waiting for the lark to come rolling by them.

That is a retarded video for sure, yea, like who is Lori whatsherface? Oops, I almost forgot, she's the fastest chick that no ones ever heard of before. The bike is not challenging enough for her huh? I noticed guys like John McGuiness and Jonathan Rea seem to do pretty well on them but maybe they're not in her same class...lol! What a crock, this is why I don't pay much attention to these magazine reports.

There was a shoot-out test in Australian Motorcycle News a few months back. Comparsion was done on the new Sydney Motorsport Park (Eastern Creek). ALL the testers were current or ex-racers. No road test, or non-racer testers. All the testers rounded on the 'Blade. No t/c, no rbw, no anti-wheelie, no enough ground clearance, HRC should earn their keep, blah-blah-blah.

Clearance issue was from hero-knobs dragging, but surely if you're going to track your bike, you'd at the very least remove the knobs? 'Cause if you dragging the hero-knobs on the street, that's Honda way of saying "Easy, tiger!" One idiot was whining because he had to lift off the throttle when upshifting, and, lordy-lordy, he had to use the clutch to downshift! Wanker.

That said, my next bike won't be a Fireblade, but not because I think it's bland, or not a great bike. My last four bikes have been inline fours, and I've got a hankering for something with an uneven firing order (Aprilia, I'm looking in your direction!)
