Sounds like folks are buying Hondas because they're not smart enough to know the bikes are lagging....or they know, but they're not smart enough to care.

So either way, you want your bike to be lighter with more power. Tell ya what....let's level the playing field a bit. You can bring the RR.

I think its funny that people are willing to spend their hard earned money on the "new" CBR 600 that looks like an 06, and the "new" fireblade that has been around since 08.

I've always had Honda cars and they're great. They serve their purpose for hundreds of thousands of miles. Their bikes though? There's a reason I'll never own one of those pieces of . Consistently under powered, aesthetically short sighted and their countless issues with their off-road bikes that don't start, hate neutral and contain self destructing crank shafts. I see their street bikes more along the lines of their cars. They don't set the world on fire but they get the job done if you're just trying to get from a to b.

The CBR1000RR holds current records at the Isle of Man TT.
It was the first sportbike to offer ABS. Yeah it's due for an update if you need a bunch of nanny type electronics.

I love cbr 1000rr, it way not be the top end power wise, but they call it torque monster for a reason. Last i checked it was the best selling street bike as well. It is extremely easy to ride, by that i mean they designed it so well with the way they "centralized mass" i am confident riding it in every way, what bike can beat it on anything but a straight highway?

As previously stated I like honda, but it seems like they have ever so gradually started dropping the ball and relying on brand loyalty instead of innovation to sell their cars/motorcycles.

Same goes with Toyota. In fact the whole auto industry seems like it has lowered it standards.

Maybe it's because I'm less than a year from being 50 but I don't want a bunch of technology and innovation on my bike. If the said innovation is to make it more reliable and run longer, fine, I'm all over that. I don't want or need it to have blue tooth or navigation.
If you need ABS or traction control maybe you should take a rider refresher course.
I get on my bike and go down the street to get away from all the technology. I don't want people calling me. I don't want to hear the radio. I don't need GPS. Getting lost out on the back roads is half the fun.

I don't want any nannies on the track. When it comes to aggressive street riding, the nannies could very well save you from going down. Nobody buys a bike with ABS or TC because they are fundamentally incapable of riding without those things. They buy them as added insurance in case those things would be the difference between remaining upright and going wheels up. I can understand your desire to have a raw riding experience, free of technology. But just because that is your preference does not mean that it is the preference of others, nor does it mean that they don't know how to ride. I know plenty of guys that would suck the paint off your bike that still insist on having the technology on the street

So buy a 2006, not a 2016 and save a load of money.

Exactly. How many F1 drivers say "you know what? Take all that technology off my car that makes it perform better than any human ever could. It's up my racing experience"

Point taken Repth. I'm not an aggressive rider by any means. Having those options for that style of riding would be an asset.
I'm more like the guy at the rider safety course telling you to make sure you are at least 2 seconds behind the vehicle in front of you, etc. LOL
