it's about time the R1 was worth buying. The R1 has been the worst 1k bike for about 5 years now. You die-hards needed something to not cry over

It seems he was pretty high up in the revs for most of the lap as well. The RMP needle was all the way over pinned!

Honda all the way.

I don't ride track anyways. So for a daily, the Honda is the best bet.

But I want to get the new R6 and 600RR anyways. They are both amazing bikes.
