Sorry it's a bad joke I agree with you completely just couldn't resist. Sort of a knee-jerk reaction.

I'd want to see the ZRX1200 in the mix.

The "prizes" today often aren't returnable, even with penicillin.

The literbikes also have lower gearing, I believe.



A fair point. However, the litrebikes still seem to have better roll on times than the Busas/Blackbirds/etc, which was the original comment.



Which makes such testing pointless



Most performance comparison testing is pointless. For streetbikes, who cares if one bike is 0.4 second faster 0-60, or if another is 0.6 sec faster in a roll on? It's all really academic.



Personally, if a bike is capable of the 1/4 in the 12s or less I think that it's more than enough for the real world. Who really rides around at WFO anyways?



Of course magazines need objective means of distinguishing bikes, and performance tests are a way of doing just that. {shrug}

A friend of mine took one out last weekend. Said he would be in more danger of speeding tickets on the Rocket than his Speed Triple.
