I'm also coming from the last gen cross plane r1 to a '16 zx10r. Did quite a few track days and a little racing on my 2012 r1 and although I loved it the thing always felt like a bit of a pig. Thought for sure I would get '15+ R1 but the prices/features made me jump the ninja. I haven't spent much time on the 10r yet but can already tell it's so much better than the 2012 R1.
I was an idiot though and bought the 10r brand new and have to do all the upgrades myself. I just feel weird riding used bikes but damn it hurts the wallet. Bike is at Farrell's right now getting the rake angle brought in and swing arm pivot changed.
Good luck to you this season!
