front end looks really beefy i just wish honda would try to make more power out of these bikes so we stop getting ate up by the suzukis and what not.
Well I'd rather Honda didn't follow Suzuki's lead. The GSX-R has gotten significantly heavier while the 1000RR is supposedly lighter than its predecessor. Not sure if the 1000RR will ultimately be just as fast in a straight line but having less weight certainly won't hurt.
Im sure the bike is still going to look quite a bit different come race day. It is not a bad start. Since it isn't too eye catching in some opininons including myself I can almost insure it is a performance machine. Down in wieght up in power and hopefully back in P1 in AMA. Hopefully it can hold down the world superbike boys as it did last year. It has its work cut out for it considering the ole 1098 is coming to play this year.
I sat on it at the show and it felt very light. It did feel close to my six. It was also very ergo friendly in my opinion. :icon_supe

I wasn't too keen on it at first. I liked the headlights, the new honda tank symbol, and the tail section a little bit. They need to fix the pipe. I can understand the stock pipe, emissions control, etc., but the race pipe can look a whole lot better. They were definitely engineering a bike for performance rather than looks this time around. Hopefully with a good rider, Mladin and Spies will be put to rest (probably not though ). It looks like they tried to make it even more nimble, and if the power output is up there, then I expect it to be running for first place in magazine shootouts, despite mixed reactions to the looks.
