ZX10r, 3rd gen (08-09). Monster power, parts are-a-plenty, motor & tranny are bulletproof, handling does not take much to be spot on.

If you had quit riding you probably wouldn't be here on MH asking for advice. Get what makes you happy and allows you to keep some cash in your pocket.

I vote R1, I know you like them.
