I would like to see an 800rr. Or even a 1200rr to compete with Ducati's 1199 s

I thought of that too but don't side-track! We need a CBR800RR first please!!
i'd like to try the 800RR as well. but i've never been on a bike bigger than my 600RR, and i doubt i will be able to outride it anytime soon. maybe that's why i have no interest in have a 1k RR.
Yea exactly, pushing a 1k is a danger, yes well a 250 can kill you but i think you can push the limits a bit more on a cbr800rr without those limits being deadly, but naturally that differs for each guy as some noob could get a hold on one and kill themselves no problem, there's always one :P
No one wants a k? My buddy would be irate if they released one and I picked one up. He's a 750 rider but doesn't fit into the stereotype, he wears his gear for one.
haha I don't want a 1krr, but im dissapointed in the 750, i rode a 2010 for a month everyday for free so i feel i can have an opinion on it, for the cc to me it doesn't produce the torque it should(it's nicer yes liked the extra bhp had good fun on the weekends on it), and there's some really well modded RR's on here produced late teens over 100bhp such as 119...thats getting hella close to the 750's 133 and thats 600...so if honda made a cbr800 and we modded that, it'd be a serious litre eater
to me honda would do more with 800cc's than suzuki does in that area and then the quality and finish would mean i can ride it all weathers like my honda's have always done, engine paint was flaking off on the 2010 i rode...barely old at all it was a 2010 damnit! i was thinking gravel drop, was a hire bike but still, the flakes looked too well placed for a gravel drop
at my gf's work a guy wants a bike(first bike)...and he wants the gsxr750....dunno what it is but it appears it's a noob magnet! where are suzuki advertising the 750 that it seems every new rider has heard of it? it's probably all the reviews hailing the cc as perfect for the road not twitchy like a 1k and not revy like a 600 so they all think 750 is for them...
some say why produce so many cc's, well kawasaki sat there raking it on off of the ninja 250, so honda made a 250 again(and don't forget they made them before as well, wasn't lucky enough to get one myself but 19,000rpm redline, who wouldnt want to try one!) and honda also made 400's, i owned 2 in my bike history a 1988 cbr400RR and a 1994 RVF400, the 1988 gave me problems any 24yr old bike would but the rvf was a blast! seen the 1998 ones with low miles pick up more than the cost of an 05 600rr, and we're leaving suzuki to rake in customers with the 750 that wouldn't even be with suzuki if honda made an 800, bikers will always have their own opinions on what cc to ride at what time, it's not always up people come down in cc or stop biking as well, but honda needs to be available for the whole journey, i've ridden each cc as i've gone up(not 500 though) so for people like me i'm an example that would own a honda 125, then move up to 250 then 400 then 600 etc if honda had that kind of a lineup available...but i can see what they're thinking about is new bike sales so who knows...i bet they've thought of/are planning/or want to do, an 800cc sportbike...i doubt they haven't thought about it, would be nice to honda what the honda brain is thinking!
P.S. It'd be nice to hear from the 3 people who voted 600rr why they want a second
600rr instead of one of the other two!
