Are you bored and decided you wanted to be snarky with the writer of the article? Or did you just have left over question marks at the end of the day that you needed to use?

We dynoed one bike. Other people have dynoed other CBRs and gotten similar results.

No no he never answered my question. Just because you ran one bike doesnt tell you what other same model years are pumping out. There can be differences of 8hp or more from the years I'v ran them.

NP, MOKE. Part of our job is to provide answers to questions. We're still investigating this situation. We still don't have information about what else is changed besides the exhaust valve, i.e. electronically. We're also looking into what's needed to disable the systems, but the OEMs are understandably, for legal reasons, tight lipped.

I am so flatttered you rememberd my qoute LR. Well going to the gym helps with my new ZX-6R (more agressive riding position than my old ZX-6R), riding horses, and of course with the ladies. Next time I go to Chicago we can go to the gym together. The ellipitical (one with arms too) is the best for riding bikes and horses. I fininsh up with 100 roman char situps.

Hey Kevin, thanks for the review of these bikes on the street. This is where 90% of us will actually ride these bikes, not the track. I understand the track reviews because it allows you to push the bikes to their limits, I however find your street opinions much more use full in what I am looking for in a bike. Is it possible for you list the rider triangle dimensions as well, this would give us a better understanding of how folded up a rider would be. Once again, great article, and great website, I always come here first to look for new reviews, and articles.

Thanks for the kudos! We don't currently have the ability to accurately measure rider ergos, so hopefully our descriptions in text give you a good idea how riders of various sizes fit.

So when are you guys going to get around to bumping the Daytona and the ZX6 together? "Next month" was March, after all...
