I really like this bike alot! Alittle surprised that Honda hasnt decided to do some changes for 2005 with it..even in the wake of the new model coming out that Shan mentioned in another thread.

Honda doesnt ususally sit on it's laurels for to awful long, unless you're talking about the VFR which is largely unchanged for years at a time, and rightfully so..but anywho, the 1000RR is an overall comfortable, user-friendly sport-bike, designed in the honda tradition of style and real world ergos, with a few racer twists integrated. I know they've kinda changed their design thinking recently, trying to be more like Suzuki, in taking a race bike and turning it into a street bike, as opposed to taking a street bike and turning it into a race bike.

Nice. I don't know which one I like better, the red and black, or red, white and blue.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the large open space above the rear tire? I know the bike doesn't have eight inches of rear suspension movement. The only advantage is the last thing most people see is your passenger's rear end.

They don't look like that in real life or in person. They are a straight up sweet ride. The guy I know is on a black one....way sweet!

Yeah, the picture doesnt do the bike justice by any stretch..plus when looking at the rear, it looks alittle spacey since the exhaust is under the seat.

This would be more choice over a gixxer 1000 or an R1..but its a toss up though with the ZX10 or this.

body work reminds me of something off a chevy avalanche. :rolleyes:

It's almost like they moved the exhaust underseat and didn't change the rest of the rear. If it had a side mounted can, it wouldn't look as weird. Of course the can has to look right, look at the new gixxer 1K.

The red,white and blue kind of reminds me of the old F2 Hurricane.

It's available down here in those colours, and it is the best looking of the lot I have to say.

As for this comment:

Well the Honda has two Rs, therefore it must be twice as good :D

Depending on who you talk to..it is twice as good..but me, i'll take either one..although the 1000RR is more comfortable to ride, espcially on long runs,that the 10R :yesnod:
