    After 18 months with my much loved Daytona 675r it was time to move on and try something else.
    The Daytona was faultless for me over the 5k miles i covered on it.
    As an all round sports bike i genuinely don't think you can beat it which was why i was so unsure about changing it.

    After much deliberation though the deal was done and i picked up this beauty, I've ridden them before on track and that's what got me, on the road it's a bit of a beast but as soon as you are out of town it's actually quite good fun and ridiculously quick.

    It's the 60th anniversary Kenny Roberts, yeah. It has the colour scheme and the Akra as standard over the standard R1.

    I've ridden the 2018 R1m at brands on the gp circuit, it's an amazing bike, and noticeably better than the standard with the active suspension.

    If i get on well with the R1 I might have a look at secondhand 2018 M's when they start coming up as there are a few worth while improvement over the earlier years in my opinion.
     
  9. Looks fantastic in that colour. Enjoy your new ride.

    Just love the speed block scheme. You must be made up. I'd love one of these but I do quite a bit of two up riding and unfortunately sports bike are getting pretty pillion anti social.

    These sound absolutely incredible
    That cross plane sounds lush. It certainly did today whilst I was on Brands GP

    Hope you enjoy that naughty piece of kit
