I've owned the last 3 generations of the CBR1000RR, 2 generations of the ZX10, and I've seriously considered the GSXR, but the R1 has never even been an option.

Do I really have to answer this son? Have some attitude before you get slapped by a BORC member and buy yourself an R1..

zx10 has better hp numbers but is a dog, the start on an r1 is not a problem if you know how to rpm match. its not your typical inline four and its the only bike with linear power. who cares if it is 450 lbs, it still is a beast.

The R1 is fat and outdated...almost everyone but R1 owners will agree. Whereas most people will say "Yeah a CBR is good" even if they dont own one.

Thats the best advice you'll get.

Im getting a new bike , just became a homeowner so i can afford a new toy. I want a bike i can ride as much as i can with great handling and i really want to hit the track.

08 thru 10 can burn oil. And I'd still go with this.
