Budget cuts are a . The economy seems to have brought development to a standstill. The new CBR1000 seems to be pretty much the same as well. Just new bodywork and paint. Minor mechanical changes only. At least Yamaha has gotten in the bandwagon with a slipper clutch.

He put more miles on my bike than he did on a brand new R1 with no problems.


So even you said the new R1 isn't anything new or upgraded
