I sat on a new 2017 GSX-R1000 at the Dallas bike show in January. As usual, the ergonomics are spot on and it is narrow compared with previous gen. Like the ZX-10R, they have the standard model and the high-end model. For the extra $2K you get the Showa Balance Free front forks and the Balance Free Rear Cushion (BFRC Lite) shock.
If I was in the market for a new bike I would be torn between the two. Being a lifelong Kwackhead, I would probably go with the ZX-10R.
Yamaha finally got serious with the R1 in 2015. The 6th Gen R1, 2009-2014, was a sport-touring bike. Graves spent a ton of money making it competitive in AMA Superbike/MotoAmerica. Then again they didn't have a lot of competition since there wasn't any factory bikes and sponsors were tight with purse strings.
Honda CBR1000RR is new for 2017. Other than Honda pointing out it has a "titanium fuel tank" it looks mediocre and if Nicky Hayden's performance on it in WSB's first two rounds is any indication, it still needs a lot of work. To be fair, Red Bull Honda didn't get the new Hondas until right before the start of the season.
