Re: Official pics of the 2004 R1
[ QUOTE ]
I agree that the Mille looks really nice, but from all accounts I've read, Mille should have about 128hp at the rear wheel, or thereabouts. The R1 should have around 160 or so. Man, that is a huge difference, and I'm sure the R1 is lighter too. Now I want to see some hp figures for the new ZX-10R. That is also a nice bike. And this praise coming from a Ducati owner, at that!
[/ QUOTE ]the thing is that the mille will have 70 fp of torque off idle while the r1 does not , the mille is a twin when that is really made to compete against 750's not 1000cc I4's . Both great bikes and yes ill be going with an 04 r1 soon enough
