I'd say if you're on a 1000 now, you will want to stay with a 1000. Look into the yamaha R1. But then again, ya just gotta set on these bike now to tell.

No doubt if your buying new you have to get what feels right under you. Good luck with your purchase.

Shouldnt see too many changes from the big 4 this year coming up really.. they always have minor ones besides the paint scheme..but the ZX10 new body style has been out for only a couple years now, the 1000RR is due for some style changes but dont know if Honda is doing it in 2006. The new Gixxer is just redesigned so nothing more than some new paint schemes will probably come of it, but u never know. The R1 is one where you might see a few changes, in the brakes and suspension, but we'll see.

I can imagine some changes to the 10R are in order. Something to put a stake in the king of the hill again. It is really close the new GSXR 1K and I figure they'll want to do something.
