I like the dashboard and the wheels...but the front looks like the 04 to 07 RR.

So a .002 laptime increase justifies it being a better bike? Thats like saying a pimple on my makes me a better .
Hmmmm, I thought the winner was the one that crossed the finish line first

I'll bet you're just itchin' to jump back on a "Hardley" and be the winner at PP1

Well, if that's the model, ours is surely to be 10 times as sucky.

Would look good in red with those wheels in gloss black though.
I hate honda's tri spoke wheels!!

HOLY , you posted this again.

I like Hondas but this bike is just flat out ugly. The lights look dated and the bodywork is nothing to look at. If they could somehow work the tail of the 08 with an updated front from the 05, I think that would be a good looking bike

At least they got rid of the ugly flat nose on the current gen.
Why was the camera panning on the scooter so often? Seemed like camera man was more interested in it.

Love mesh wheels and I like the gauges but they seem a bit dated compared to other offerings now, like the ZX10rs. Personally, I like the blunt 08+ front end but this 2012 looks more aggressive.

Hopefully they push out the 08+s @ a great price

Yes, yes I did.

The CBR1000RR is the lightest bike in its class. The way it looks has a lot do with keeping the weight down. I'll take performance, handling, and durability over posing points any day, but I'm not much for hanging out in parking lots. So there you go.

I am sure it is one of a performer, but personally I dont like it, but I am not surprised. This is what Hondas should look like (yes, I am an old fart)
