Hopefully the 17' will be a total redesign...
Yeah, the CBR sucked unless you like being the first one across the finish line. It was also the first superbike with available ABS

True true...

But Ofcourse you are talking about Factory race bikes, not production bikes.

Hondas are great all around bikes, but the cbr1000rr is in major need of a revamp, and has been since 07.

Honda announces new model revamp! Lighter! Semi-active ohlins! 5 more hp!

Too bad absolutely zero of that makes a difference to the WSBK machine. It'll have new headlight decals, and that's it.

And why is Bevo posting shootouts from 2010?!

Uh, that SuperPoll was was conducted by two test riders on bikes straight out of the box at Thunderhill.

Congrats on picking up the fact that since 09 by adding ABS, the CBR has not really changed. What year did Bruce Anstey set the Isle of Man lap record?

Uh, can't you read the quote that's included with that superpoll graphic? What does 190-175 = ?

You just walk proud knowing you own a '07 R6

That it was the fastest, and had ABS? In 2010?

Anstey is 3rd on IOM fastest laps book now, his lap was bettered by Dunlop and Hutchinson

What year did he hold the record? You realize ABS is an option, right?

Well let me help you by breaking it down for you.

According to ZXALAN the CBR hasn't been worth a since 2007. There have been no major changes save for ABS. What does that say about all the other bikes at Isle of Man in 2014 and what does it say about the CBR?

The IOM has never been about the bike, it's the rider. You could enter that race on the trickest fireblade you could find, and put Martin, Dunlop, Hutch, Cummins, Anstey - all on cbr300s. You're getting beat by every single one of them.

I bet I could kick dat if I was on a '07 R6. Thanks for avoiding the question just like you probably avoid MH group rides
