Have you seen those bikes up close?
They are not even close to the same.
That's all market hype.
Hayes runs AMA...it isn't hype They are restricted on what they can do with the bike.

Why are you here if you think the R1 is such a horrible bike?

Hey Greenstreak, it's z064life lazy ass

Hey now.

The first OP that doesn't drink the Koolaid or has something somewhat negative to say gets to be a troll?....motorcycles are highly subjective. If you can't handle it then ban my ass from the forum.

I never said the R1 isn't good. All I am saying is Yamaha needs a revamp.
The mods were the usual plus Ohlins Carts. & Shock, Graves system, velocity stacks PC3r, dyno tuned Pirelli SC dot race. That's what it needed.
Maybe not much $ for rich boys that are sponsored...but a lot for me.

All I can say when stock Suzuki 750 can run Group A pace with street tires and be almost as fast as my decked out R1 then somethings got to give. Imagine what the gixxer is going to do when I drop $4k on it and put race rubber...it's fast I tell you.

Bikes have evolved. Yamaha needs to evolve a bit too. R1 is a great bike.

You come to the R1 forum, with not much time or credibility here and begin to run your trap. Definition of troll. Sorry.

No problem. I understand.

Bikes are all about personality. I rode the new 2011 ZX10 and really hated it.
That bike ran wide all the time and I couldn't adjust it out.
My buddy is faster than me on it and he loves it like a son.

Anyhow, the point was Yamaha needs an update. It's a somewhat portly feeling bike. The only mag I read is Road Racing World. Opinions are like assholes I say.

What track? A tight track will have 1000s, 750s and 600s dancing around one another in every turn, depending on rider skill.

I don't know your skill level, but on a fast track, you shouldn't have any issues outpacing 750s.

Also, since you mentioned it, what you did to your R1, or any motorcycle for that matter, isn't necessarily decked out or lightened to any significant degree.

And yes, I would love to see a new R1 from Yamaha.

This is all very true...which is why my preference is not fast tracks that favor shear hp. I prefer tracks that have more of a mixture.

Hey Minacious & Bacchus40,

I'll be driving down 101 to the 10 over to Chuckwalla...passing you in the evening on Dec 2nd. I've got one spot left in my Cummins Diesel rig for your bike. You can go if you want.

I won't be there, but do have a bunch of friends/associates that will be there. They're all a bunch of CVR junkies and racers. Enjoy it.

I have a feeling Yamaha will have a barn burner for 2014 like they did in 98' and 04'. They are holding out on us. 5 or 6 years is not like Yamaha.
The strongest up coming player now is really Kawasaki.

It will probably be the 3 cylinder bike Yamaha has been on about lately.

Well what about that new Triple they let the public know about? It might be that there's a new R1 triple around the corner..

Your 750 is faster on track because you suck at riding big boy bikes

Yamaha said a 675 and 1100 triple in 2014, at Intermot. Going to have to put up with a wobbler and a 7 year old R6 for another year. The triples will still have a balance shaft and excessive electronics...so not a huge weight saving...and probably not a huge power gain.

The 06 will continue to have the best power to weight ratio in standard trim, of all the R1's.
