maybe if he weren't doing wheelies and this wouldn't have happened. 25 mph and 7000 medical bills.

Anything newer than an 03 is unsafe for anything other than the track.

It used to be that sportbikes were made to be streetbikes that could go racing. Now they are racebikes that you can take on the street. Today's bikes are too fragile for street duty IMHO.

do i think a manuf would sale it ummm yes. as long as people like yourself feel as if they have to have 170+hp on the street they wil lkeep giving you it. as long as someone feels the need to have the latest greatest race rep to help their feel bigger they will keep helping you. though i just got this zx6r i bet me and my 7r could make a good number of 06 gsxr1000 riders wnat to trade their bikes in. yes that's a overweight 1998 zx7r.

Umm.....licensed racer here...
Think I'm pretty familiar with the difference between street & the track

Find me a pot hole on the track (not counting Oak Hill)......or a spot where a big wheelie makes you go faster. Don't kid yourself...streetbikes get dropped way more than racebikes. Not spectacularly crashed, DROPPED....oops in the parking lot, falling off the kickstand or whatever the case may be

I've bought my race bikes from salvage auctions for years & I've seen the average damage levels to bikes go steadily up. "Win on Sunday, sell on Monday" That quote didn't come from nowhere. Mfg's are in an all out war to make the bikes lighter & faster. "Lighter" means less metal pure & simple. Most of the parts of the engine can't be tampered with much due to the work loads they're under, so where you do save weight? Lighter wheels & lighter frames.......Ie in 03 we started seeing GSXR's that had the front wheels collapse (probably after setting down a wheelie but collapsed all the same)
Now we've progressed right on to bikes the the frames break in half. Show me 1 900RR or SRAD GSXR that that EVER happened to.

a zx7rr superbike made 150hp in full race form. this included lighter wheels slightly lighter frame lighter forks shock and everything. the stock bike was a far cry from the full out race bike heck the zx7rr full on race bike didn't even have a starter or alt jsut a battery. now they are leaving the starters on because the bikes are so light from the factory that they can have starters and batteries and alt. to use instead of a constant loss system like in the old days( light weight battery no alternator and you run the whole race on the battery charge once that's used up you have no more juice) and if you bike stopped on the track you either push start it or you're out of the race .with the light weight alot of times comes a more fragile part. the new bikes are making 180bhp from the factory the wsb spec bikes are making 210bhp in full race trim there's really not a whole lot besides more trick suspension and traction control that separate the two bikes. if you look at alot of race bikes also alot of there frames and swing arms are welded as to reinforce them because they are pretty fragile and even flex under high speeds.

bottom line what used to be done to race out a bike is already being done from the factory for to skirt the rules in racing (if it's on the stock bike it can be used for racing per homologation rules) but this works great for smoother pavement (i know a race track is not perfectly smooth but when put up against a regular street it's smooth.) they also do it for everyone that gets off on having the latest and greatest thing to ride around and impress their friends. if it were up to me the sv1000 and similiar would be the only bikes riding on the street because you just really don't need anymore than that because that bike is already over kill. good thing it isn't up to me huh. lol.
