Best Bang For The Buck
Jan. 4, 2009
I purchased the first 08 from a local shop and was thrilled from the start. My first 1000 weighs less that my previous 600. The thing steers better than a 600 as well! The balance of the machine is wonderful. Very very easy to change direction. The motor just rips. My only dissapointment came later ... Read Full Review

It doesn't matter where you read, the CBR1000RR for 2008 is the "best sportbike" possibly ever. It beats the pants of the competition in every test it enters:

By rob(Owner), Oct. 24, 2009
Still in break-in mode but even under 6k rpm the power is stupendous. I owned an 09 yamaha r6 and compared to this bike, I can' feel much difference in the handling.
