93RR more important than the 98 R1??? Hard to say that exactly, I would have to say there are 4 equally ground breaking motorcycles that came out in the 90's.
1. 1990 Kawasaki ZX-11. Ultimate bad boy bike. Black from head to toe, first bike to truely use Ram-air induction (the other manufacturers took another 5 years to realize the importance of this technology), if you wanted the flat out highest performing motorcycle of the day, this was your bike...
2. 1993 Honda CBR-900RR. Opened the abandoned 900cc class back up with a bang. Created the 'light makes right' attitude that would influence the other manufacturers from then on. Power and handling were raw and unchained, but if you wanted the best power to wieght ratio bike on the market, this was the bike to have...
3. 1994 Ducati 916. Italian sex to the 10th power. Took handling to a level unexperienced by anything short of a GP motorcycle. Single sided swing-arm, undertail exhaust, V-twin race bike that costed less than most Harley Davidsons, what else could you possibly ask for???
4. 1998 Yamaha YZF-R1. Took the power to wieght ratio game to a whole new level (wieghted what a 600 did, had the dimensions of a 750 and more power than a liter bike), and created a style the others are still trying to catch up to. This bike had every catagory covered like no bike before it. Light, quick, agile, stylish, and although it didn't shatter any hp records, it's power band was one of the best of any bike before it or since. Squids flocked to this bike in droves for a good reason, it was the complete bike.
If you Suzuki fans felt left out, it's because your ground breaking bike came in 2000. The GSX-750R obliterated the 750cc class, practically ending it, and opened the door for the 1K a year later.
So who'll come out with the next earth shattering bike???
