Re: 02 r1 or gsxr 1000/750 or 954

R1!!! The GSXR and the R1 are both BAD BIKES! If you want total power get the 1K. If you want a combo of both get the R1. 954 doesn't impress me. In the beginning the mags were saying that the handling and performance of the R1 and 954 were almost identical. After being around alittle while (954) I hear about mid-range glitches in the throttle response and a couple other qwerks with the Honda. They say the 954 in a SHARP low speed corner, the throttle glitch cause the honda to want to twitch and slide when you get back hard on the throttle. The R1, on the other hand, even when the motor is lugged it will get up off the corner smooth and hard with no chassis twitch!



If you want to know how good the tail section of an R1 looks...Just ask a Honda rider![img]/images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Lotta Gik's in California? I thought Cali was overwhelmed by R1's and SRAD Gixxers.

Re: 02 r1 or gsxr 1000/750 or 954

a few simple mods and it all becomes clear! The R1 is the best looking for sure..it's not a honda..and witha few mods it just as fast if not faster the the gixxer..... Plus did I mention that unreal look of the R1.....?

Get a silver R1. It's the best combination of power, handling, and style.

They're all good but the 954 is the best street bike (IMO). It's the most comfortable and feels the smallest/lightest because it is.
