we know it's not really a vs video because both bikes are very rider dependant but this was session 3 of the day in the inters group at Oulton Park. I found this session really quite frustrating in that the R1 seemed to be very early on the brakes and not especially smooth although liked to wind it on between the corners. This also made me reflect on me being just like the R1 rider when I had my ZX10r at Snetterton last year. I will be the 1st to admit that bike had far to much power for my ability. The 675 feels far more manageable and more than powerful enough for me despite me being 100kg in leathers.
