Re: CBR 954RR vs ZX-9R
The 954 handles/steers quicker but twitchy(due to lighter weight), the ZX9R is more stable and doesn't move around as much(from the extra weight). Really personal preference, I've grow to like the bike moving around under me and keep a loose grip on the bars so it works for me. I got tired of the slower steering yet stablility of my older heavier VTR1000 but I learned alot from the confidence it gave me that's lacking the the 954.
First Liter bike? ZX9R. Next Liter bike? 954/R1/GSXR...
