Eye of the beholder, I guess...

If you gave me a ZX-10R I'd sell it the same day...

that Honda in black kinda gives me wood though! (I'd like
it better *all* black, I don't really like the "wing" effect the
different color upper gives
)

Thanks for the pix!

....or one of the new finely crafted Suzuki products!


Is that a Scott's style steering damper I see on the top of the fork, in front of the tank?
I will say that Honda does put a nice looking swingarm on their newer bikes.

It's not too bad, but it looks like it has to many gadgets and nuts and bolts. I wonder how it would be to work on.

Every Honda that I have wrenched on has been a FN pain in the ass!! Try changing the spark plugs on a 929,

Time to bloody those knuckles up or get friendly with your dealer.....

"Looks like the ZX10R is the way to go......"

Looks like the 03 GSXR1000 in Blue or Silver is the way to go...

So far the ZX-10R and this CBR999RR are not to impressive...

The only one left is the new R1 and i still think that the 03 GSXR1000 is going to be better!!!

Both of the new bikes look like any type of spark plug change or anything other then oil change might be real hard.

I like that on the GSXR1000 you can change the oil and filter without removing the fairing.

And all the other things are very easy to get to...

IMHO beauty is as beauty does (and costs). I see no specs, etc but Honda usually finds a way to water down/mess up
potentially good designs. Its a bit cluttered, but I could live with a black one if it works well.

Thanks for the pics Ron! Bring on the new R1! Some very interesting comparos are coming in the mags!

anyone who has set on a 600rr would say that the bike is THE MOST UNcomfortable bike there is. This 1000 looks to be the same.

Funny thing is that the New R1 looks a lot like the CBR 1000. Got the underseat pipe and similar front end. Claims 165 hp. Saw it in a Japanese Masgazine. Should be out in 1-2 more months for us iin Japan.

racerboy---Can you post a pic of that R1???

Even if the new R1 has 165HP the 03 GSXR1000 has 162HP and that is close enough to be all rider.So i will spank all R1's/ZX-10R's/and CBR999RR's

Motherfucker. God damn hondas are such a pain in the ass to wrench on. 19 fasteners to change the oil on a 600rr.

This bike does zero for me. It looks like a chick with 34C tits, a decent face and an ass so wide you'd still not hit it if she took it up the corn chute. Nice on top but too heavy on the bottom.

Come on guys! Chip I am ashamed in you (being a Honda rider)....

They are not going to use Tokico brakes when Nissin is owned by Honda...

wow is that god dam thing, ugly as hell. I have had to 1k's now and a r1 before that. Including many others, never ever have i been brand loyal like some of you. i have owned so many new rockets it isnt even funny. I have never owned a honda, and im not gonna start either. Looks closer for me to be buying the zx 10, i love that bike so far. i have nothing against honda's but jesus are they blind over there at honda.
