Yea, where is the lap times? The 1/4 mile times and trap speeds? Where is the in depth review of riding them on the road vs. the track. Where is the experience exlplaination about how it feels to ride each bike. Last years shoot out was a jewel because it had all those factors. I know you guys are better than this last shoot out. But please don't repond with the why don't you try it. I always want to know how a bike feels while riding it, something that was provided in generous supply last year.



Also, on the Dyno the GSXR shows some serious gains on the others yet, you ranked it last for street and didn't say much about how the motor worked on the track.



Other than that, Good Job.

I'd add the F4i also, it was the best of the "old" supresport 600's comparo after-all.

Cycle News included the 749S, and it placed last.

rumor has it that Triumph actually owns Cycle News, and that Paul Carruthers is illegitimate love child of Edward Turner.

One of the most interesting comments was "Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki all sent their tech support staff to keep their bikes clean, fueled and perfectly tuned for each rider's preferences." That means the Suzuki and the Triumph were at a huge disadvantage on the track. A bike prepped to be absolutely perfect will really shine on the racetrack.



Also, the Triumph was not the most expensive bike in the test, and it did not have the worst fuel mileage.



Considering all of these factors, the 675's victory is really shocking.
