Open Bike Shootout Feedback!

In the City of Angels, things seem to change faster than they do in the Lazy South or even the bustling East Coast. About the only thing that's constant here is change, and the Open Class of sportbikes is really no different.

We gathered Suzuki's GSX-R1000, Yamaha's YZF-R1, Honda's CBR929RR, and Kawasaki's ZX-9R and spent a bunch of time with each vehicle on the track and on the street under a variety of conditions.

So what did we come up with? You'll be surprised when you find out, that's for sure...

Take a look at the story, the photos, video and dyno charts and let us know what you think of the story and the bikes involved.

Again, keep things on topic and keep the negativity to a minimum. Post nothing that you wouldn't say to our, or your fellow MOians' faces, and remember, many of them (such as HackFu here!) are heavily armed, with short tempers. We thank you from the bottom of our Alpinestars. Now go out and ride!
