I was indeed impressed with the details of that article. Personally, I'd take the R1 over the gixxer any day. Even if the price was 2000 less, I'd still buy the R1.
I hate the way the Suzuki feels. The only Suzuki thats actually okay is the SV650S, which my girlfriend rides.
She bought it this June.
I cannot wait for this year's comparison. 02 R1 vs EVERYONE! I hear that the midrange is incredibly quick, and thats what everyone wants! Low end torque!
Anyways enjoy, and post more articles. Swedie and I certainly enjoy them. Right?
I MUST ADMIT THAT RIGHT NOW ANYTHING FASTER THAN THE R1 IS MORE THAN THIS RIDER NEEDS . THE R1 IS MORE THAN ENOUGH BIKE FOR ME.GUESS IM NOT THE MOST DARING BUT I KNOW MY LIMITS, IM NO PRO RACER AND THE ROADS I RIDE AINT NO RACETRACK..........BUT I UNDERSTAND!!!
