..i would take the CBR!

not a huge fan of the Beemer looks and price tag..

I agree with the performance aspect..yes the Beemer is faster. but unless you are a big time racer. you will never fully use the power, and will never out ride either chassis'.

most liter bike owners if given a 600 will never out ride it on a track....or street. the extra power is just icing that you'll never really eat.

ive had the 07CBR1000 now im on the S1000rr. to be honest any one of these bikes are great you can use it for track for the street for the parking lot my thing is this. which one fits you better. yeah yeah yeah about track lap times... you can have the fastest, strongest, prettiest bike out there if it doesnt fit your style and your body its still in my opinion... i bought the Beemer not because of its power.. ok maybe a little.. but because i rode it and i felt really comfortable on it and im like you i ride alot on a day to day basis so comfort for me is more important...
hope that helps...

Both are nice, but the CBR is cheaper and the midrange torque is much higher than every other liter bike. 4-9k is where your at on the street most of the time anyways so it's nice to have that torque on tap. In the end just pick the prettier one or the one that is the most comfortable.

There is a first time for everything he also said he can take a liter bike anytime

For us on sport bikes, speed does matter on the street, i am not a pro racer so i dont live at the track, most of my riding are on the street.... it all comes down to the way you ride, some like to chill and some like to ride more aggressively, for those who just chill then yeah, speed is not a factor, as a matter of fact a sport bike is not a factor either..... but for those who like to ride a little faster than normal, then "speed" is the only reason for buying a sport bike

Houston has more open straight roads than anywhere else in texas, we only have cr, rr and the forest that have curves but the rest are just straight roads where it isnt too hard at all to reach top speed on any bike! I dont ride everyday but when i do i like to open her up and feel the speed and hear the sound of the exhaust!

On my S2R1000 my power band is from 3K-8.7K(redline) The L-Twin is great. It is comfortable. As fast as I need it. It is perfect for me.
