all those graphs and reviews and all this stuff but in the end its the driver that makes all the difference. someone on a 600 could very well take out someone on a 1000 and all this talk about one bike having more power than the other is really not much. They are all great bikes and they all have great performance and there will never be one bike better than the other because the things that one has the others dont and vice versa. At the end it is the driver that matters. RIDE SAFE!!
