There all so close, I figured the R1 would be dead last with the added pounds... But there all plenty of bike for any1 out there.

Agree... But my next bike will most likely be the cbr1k, I think the others went down instead of going up

I do ride a Yamaha but I am not saying that because of it. I think last year comparo and this one were viased.
Last year the ZX-10R clearly was the better bike and yet the CBR won. This year, I think even with the weight factor, the Yamaha should not be the 4th.

As you said, it is what it is and my way to deal with it is by getting an 09 R1.

Wow, big blow to the R1 after all the hype. I'm surprised it didn't do better but I guess we'll see. More comparos yet to come.

All the bikes are close performance wise, But braking, Handling, appearance, comfort etc. is what seperates them from each other. You can't go wrong with any of them, But they have to do these comparisons for the people out there that have to have what is said to be the best of the best if you know what I mean.

imo the zx10r after 04/05 then now with the 08 is reee donk u luz

but the gsxr 1k will always be king.

the r1 blah

and the cbr is just something i'd never buy.

(ive had and ridden just about everything out there, besides the new/new ones)
