a proper test ride would be to test it at RR to really feel any difference you will need to go past 9000 rpm, it is then when the s1000rr comes alive and set it apart from the rest of literbikes, if you are below that rev range it just feels like any other bike imo.

I'll keep you guys posted. I'd like to get a rough number of who would be interested in demo'ing an S1000rr just so I know interest.

Show of hands?
Which dealer in the Houston area has one available for sale? I cannot find one.
