Post True or False?

For those who own the 2012 models...would you agree or disagree with the comments made on this video?
ie) "gets boring" "doesn't need traction control" "missing character/spunk"

Also, folks who've ridden the older models like 04-05, 06-07, and 08+....any major differences between performance and feel?

BTW...i love my honda
04 Yamaha V Star 650
02 Triumph Daytona 955i
07 Honda CBR 1000rr

I'm never bored on my '12. It has the most class. I don't know why they said they get bored on it in the vid, I think they're not pushing the bike hard enough. I have to fight to keep the front wheel down when powershifting.

Plain and simple if you get bored on ANY bike you are not using it to its fullest. If that makes sense. I could ride a CBR 125 and still have a blast.

They can't find anything wrong with it so it's "boring". More HP up top etc.
The problem is they feel the need to reward "technology" because that's human nature.
In their eyes the bike probably hasn't changed enough in the last 5 years. New suspension and gauges but same motor etc. That's actually testament to how outstanding the general platform of the CBR really is

Agreed, I have never gotten bored of my '12 1000rr.. I have over 8,000 miles on it and I have done my fair share of hard riding. It gets my heart racing still, hell the wheel comes up in 1st and 2nd for me. That to me is exciting when your in triple digits and its on 1 tire..

I own a 2012 and it is a very easy bike to ride.

I do not have a ton of experiance, I have been on only a few bikes in my life.

I viewed the video and I agree with Adam Waheed .

I have test ridden a 2009 R1 and the CBR is smother and more refined.

I don't see any need for "traction control" or any "power mode" switch.

600 cc = Crotch Rocket
1000 cc = Super Bike

(some folks are confused about this)

06 here, handles great, good power delivery, low maintenance, good brakes, mine is boring too

These bikes just have excellent manners! Don't expect to have to pay tons of money to make it behave or on maintenance.

Enjoy riding a bike that doesn't need all the bandaids and complications that will surely in a few years become a pain in the @$$ to trouble shoot.
