True dat Jack..... I agree with you on the Ninja, but those 16" wheels really did affect the handling..... I think the GSXR was the first bike you could buy and take to the track and be competitve. :cheers:GsxrJack said:i also voted for the gsxr750 but in my opinion the 85 600 ninja really was the first full fairing sport/race bike, with 16" wheels and it replaced the kawasaki gpz bikes on the race tracks...but i am glad they got rid of those 16" wheels....
then the hurricane showed up :thumbs:
as far as yamaha, i think the early FJ600s and the FZ and FZR's had a big impact on the racing scene...all great bikesdouble2000r6 said:You can say what you want but Yamaha started it all with the R7 then the R6. The R1 should not even be on your poll - it should be the R7 or the R6. That is what all the other manufacturer's have copied off to come up with their current day designs. R6 lead the way back in 1999. The rest have all just followed like the sheep they are.
Is the cold effecting you people's brains!!! :wtf: :bash:Becca_007 said:Sorry but I have to say it would be a Harley. No other name is recognized by so many. You might not be into motorcylcing, but just about everyone can appreciate a Harley. I think that as a company they have made the biggest impact, but I couldn't narrow it down to a single model.
