If that's true, then Kawasaki has been done great injustice! I'm all-Honda, but damn, if the 9R beats the 954 with smaller cc's, heavier weight, and is less expensive, then K deserves more than a "scheduling conflict"!



Couldn't wait for K, huh MO? Had K been in the shoot-out, I would've seriously considered the subscription BS!

Did you have to rejet, and did that fix the low-speed carb. glitch?

Thank god someone else notices these things!!! but you have to consider that Honda has like 10 pages of ads in that magazine, we can't expect them to be totally honest can we? I mean come on, it might affect 954 sales. It's ok, i'll be happy spending my extra $1000 dollars and spanking the black frame silver swing armed (tacky) 954's and R1's.

You tease(s)! I was happily reading along when the article just ended! Ack. I don't want to read about the weigh-in. I want to read the test.

Let's not go off the deep end here. I've not noticed that MO plays the ad revenue game like CW or Motorcyclist. That's how you get those paid trips to Japan, etc. Wait a few years when the manufacturers start to realize that the Internet has a strong influence on the bike buying public. When we see the MO guys being wined and dined like the CW jerks, then you will know.



I'm willing to take hackfu at his word for now. It's a bit premature to start seeing conspiracies. We'll see what they have to say about the K down the line.

Hmmm. Why not just call this the "Big Three Clone Japanese Open Class Shootout?" What's "open" about it?



And howcome everyone's already made up his mind, anyway?

Yes, and if your mother had the right equipment, she'd be your father. But she doesn't and she isn't.



These are tests of the bikes as they come from the factory. Tests of the bikes as what they are, not what they can or could be.
