First!
 
First! IMHO, I kinda like the fresh styling of the Kawi, but the R1 is still lookin' pretty good. You gotta like the bike you get on everyday!

Oh boy, you're "FIRST"!

Now go away.

Jeez, Sachi!

A little touchy today?

Nah, not really. That "first" cr@p just annoys the heck out of me.

Why no 1098?

The Honda, while functionally superior, is just too ugly for words. Put the Honda motor in the R1 and we would have a real winner!

Not enough to go 'round

Put simply, there weren't enough of the 1098 to go around. That, and another simple issue of timing precluded one of those glorious bikes from joining us on this rocket ride. Seems the motojournalism community crashes its way through a collection of 1098 machines so fast it'll make yer head spin. Unfortunately, there weren't none left. :(

In the words of B-Rad, "Don't be hatin'!"

>Why no 1098?

I was wondering the same thing. It has identical engine in size and configuration and also the price is exactly the same with only 40% difference.
