2017 cbr1000rr awesome

  1. I have to say I’m totally obsessed with the RSV4 as mentioned earlier in the thread, and the R1 is on my list before the fireblade or so I thought...

    I went for a look around the local multi franchise with the wife the other week and saw a SP1 for the first time in the flesh and was blown away by it, just looks stunning! The only thing keeping me off it apart from money (although there are some cracking deals out atm) is the fact that I rode my mates 2015 fireblade and named it ‘firebland’, just didn’t excite me... I am sure the new one would be better so will test ride one at some point.

    Oh and nit picking but rubber brake hoses on an £19k bike...
     
  2. I always used to notice that on my mate's gixer, big clumpy rubber hoses same as on your car (where they are thankfully hidden), while the Daytona came with nice slim braided hoses and shiny stainless fittings as standard.:)
    Although its an excuse for a bit of modding before the summer.

    It can’t not be compared to the 2015 it’s miles ahead of that night and day.
    I am not going to say it’s as mental as a zx10 but for a 1000cc it’s got it in the locker if you want to ride like that I prefer not to on the road
