09+ CBR1000rr VS S1000rr

Hi

I will be looking for a new dream machine when I move to Houston next month.

Have just sold an 07 R1. I love the current one but heard its pretty guttles. I also like the new ZX10r but heard its really revy like a 600 and you need to pin it in the high revs 11000 plus to feel the power, not much good on the street. Also had the 05 zx10r,amazing engine but it was top heavy and used to headshake like a motherf*****, put me off kawi.

So with that in mind Im looking at either the 09+ fireblade or the beemer. Not sure though if the beemer is worth the extra money or if it has the same torque delivery through the range like the blade.

Does anyone on here have experience of riding any these bikes or better still them all in able to make a comparisom. I find its better to here straight from someone who actually rides the bike and has parted with there own cash, rather than believe magazine reviews which seem to hype the latest models then slate them as soon as the new bike is out.

Any info on any of these bikes genuinely appreciated.

I think Super Street Bike took an 08 CRB1000RR and a $10,000 budget (including bike cost), moded it and compared it to a SR1000RR a few months back. Though the CBR made less peak power, it had mountains of usable street power, less weight and with the mods actually made it a real contender. Once the SR1000RR got up into the power band it was no contest, but realistically how often are you in the near red-line range on the street.

If it were me, I'd take the CBR1000, throw a few mods on it and call it good. It won't be a 200HP screamer or have trick technology on it, but for the cost of a low mileage CBR and a few mods, you could get way more bang for your buck.

This is true but the comfort level of the s1000rr is in a class of its own with a bike so powerful

Yeah, but I'm thinking more of a "real world" thing. If you're not a track where you can stretch it's legs, and not running like a clowned fool on the freeways, where are you REALLY going to be able to use all that power?

It'd take a bike with LOTS of mid-range and decent upper RPM power any day over something that makes all it's power above 12,000RPM.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

the 08 1000RR is the best bike I've ever owned or ridden on the street period.

It really does feel like your riding a stable 600cc bike it's so light then when you flick your wrist you almost fall off.

I can't wait to get another one.

I've heard a ton of good things about the new CBR's now. BMW is too much money IMO.

both bikes are good street bikes, the honda has more midrange and the beemer has more top end but nothing below 9k rpm. Unless you like to ride the bike pretty hard i would seriously consider the honda over the beemer and used the extra money to modify the bike the way you like it.

have you considered an used 1098? it has plenty of torque starting from 4k rpm all the way to 10k rpm!

BM Bling

Thats kinda along the same lines as I was thinking Aaron.

The BWM does have the extra bling traction control and brembos but I dont know if the top end is that much better than the Hondas overall performance.

Also have conscience issues with buying a BMW, Ive always had bikes and find it hard to buy BMW.

Im wondering how hard it would be to get a test drive in Houston. Blood and a stone springing to mind.

You have to think of cost of operating, too. You can easily get parts for Honda's. Just about everywhere.

If BMW is anything like Triumph and you have a warranty problem with the bike you're in for a wait.

If you're out of warranty, how available are parts and what's the cost?

I think the CBR would win that one hands down.

Cant wait

1098 stunning bike,heart says f**K yeah!! but for me too uncomfortable to use everyday on the road. I will be clocking up a lot of miles everyday. Humble to Sugarland for a while.

I know I should wait till next year.Thats sound advice as there are bound to be the next generation of bikes kitted out with traction control and ABS etc and will maybe regret buying now but buying next year is 6 months of riding,cant wait.

Thinking the fireblade will be the one.

trust me, the performance of the beemer is very noticeable from 9k - 14.4k rpm,
last week we did a 3 gear roll on starting at 100mph, i was on my beemer and the other guy was on a slightly modded cbr1000 rr, as soon as i got on the gas the beemer just picked up speed very fast and all i can see in the mirror is the honda getting smaller and smaller, his bike stopped pulling around 178mph but my speedo reached 184.3 mph on six gear at 13.5k rpm and still pulling all the way to 15k rpm.

I'd see what rolls out next year. With BMW hitting early, then the ZX-10R and now the little Gixxers are getting Brembo's, BPF suspension. , even the Daytona's are stepping up. Won't be long before Brembo's, Ohlins suspension (or BPF), TC...etc are STD on all liter bikes and even the middle weights.
