Not an overly-informative video but a chance to have a decent look at the bike.
Suzuki should have put a nice Yoshimura pipe on the end. Would look way better.
The R1 cross plane power delivery isn't my cup of tea, in race mode (which is where most people think they'll go faster), the bike is snatchy and too responsive to the slightest throttle touch. Easiest to notice when you try and wheelie the thing. I'm convinced it's why it now comes with traction control too, they used to highside real nice.
Who can afford the BMW, RSV4, MV, 1198?
The Kawasaki is a massive leap forward for them, it can now keep up.
The Honda although slightly more aggressive than it used to be, doesn't capture my picture of a litre bike for performance. It's too sensible.
The Gixxer doesn't have the best finish, but it's bullet proof, animalistic (no where near as much as a K5/6 which is my thou of choice), and cheap.
Polemic....look it up
Very Nice! Just scrubbed the tyres in on the TSS demo, thanks Jimmy!
