Does it shake it's head as much as the 929? Did they get rid of that rattle from the exhaust system that seems to plague some 929s?

Thanks.

Default 154hp + super light weight + comfort + great handling.....

....equals pure fun on the road and track. I rode a 1996 CBR900RR and was amazed back then at the bike. Sounds like it's even more capable now. I'm looking forward to an MO comparison with the new R1, GSXR1000 and ZX9R. Ballpark time for that test? Need a test rider? I volunteer!

Only minor twitching hard on the throttle over rough edge of the track out of a third-gear corner while wearing race tires.

Well, the R1 intro will be in late Feb. As for when we get the bikes here, anytime in March is our guess... And yes, we might have one lucky reader join us.

Congrats on being the first out of the block with a story on the press intro (AFAIK). See, guys, we _are_ getting an improved MO for our subscription money!

That would be a "no" then! Best of luck with the subscription format. I don't know why I didn't sign up sooner, it's less than $12 fercryinoutloud!

Thanks for the congrats, but I'm pleased to report that we're just starting. We have a few multi-bike tests in the pipeline as well as a few more first rides before anybody else.



Tomorrow, we'll post the videos from the press intro (ever seen a 954 go across your bow, sliding sideways, at 160 mph coming off the banking?).
