@Banky As we've discussed at length, there's a lot wrong with how we are told to compare modern bikes these days.
With the current flock of bikes offered, there's nothing that's more of a waste of time, then a stock to stock comparison. The bikes off the showroom floor have been so restricted, muzzled or otherwise altered that you really aren't feeling the true nature of the machine at a factory demo ride.
Then there's the issue of the comparison videos. Look no further than the difference between MCN and Motorcycle.com, they both show some favoritism based on their groups "hive" mindset. MCN has a thing for the new CBR1000RR and Motorcycle.com loved the new R1 for the first couple years. This comes from the physical locations of these groups of riders, the Brits have had a thing for the Fireblade since it came out. Here in the US, we are so used to being shown how dominate the R1 is (Hayes/AMA), that this mentality spills into the comparison test performed on this side of the pond. Not that, these two groups don't make some seriously good arguments, its just that we are affected directly by the marketing money of Honda/Yamaha, even in these "non-bias" tests.
Finally, if we look at single riders review, that becomes very much a bias opinion based on his personality and physical stature. Like me, I don't like how I fit on the new R1. I like the BMW and the ZX10R better. Before you say it, yes rearsets can help, and there are tank shrouds that change ergos, seats, clipon blah blah blah....which further supports my position that stock to stock comparisons are a waste of time.
Here's the last food for thought regarding the OP's post:
This is graph of my 2016 ZX10R (201hp/86tq) vs a 2015 R1 (200hp/87tq) with similar mods and the same fuel (U4.4 oxygenated race gas). *From this graph*, the R1 looks more dominate because of the stronger midrange. However, we cannot tell the whole story from looking at power number through an RPM range. The ZX10 has STUPID short transmission but gets muzzled by factory sprockets that kills the feeling of power delivery. I'm using a -1/+2 (like 600s) and I still find the gearing very long at some tracks. That being said, when you keep the ZX10 up in the power (12-14k shift range with stock tranny), it's nearly unstoppable with the right rider
Thank God, street comparisons are much simpler...I just wanna go fast hahaha! Can't we ride and make fun of each other?
