Re: Gen 4 ZX-10R or S1kRR?
Get whichever one you think looks the best and you can get the best deal on. You will not be able to ride anywhere near 30% of the bikes capabilities. So whichever one is theoretically "better" is irrelevant.
Besides, the bikes are damn near equal, performance wise. Brakes are a wash, with an unrestricted ZX-10, the power is a wash also. According to test riders, the ZX-10 handles a little better but not by much. Electronics are a wash. Some say the ZX is better, some say the BMW is better.
Just get whichever one you like better. The bikes are so damn close, that it doesnt make a difference.
