^ While you are right, reviewers don't seem that excited with the new Blade lol. At this point I just look at them as entertainment and a general description of each bikes characteristics, even though that can sometimes be skewed.

I've watched a few video reviews and read a few as well, on the new Honda.

It seems that the consensus is:

Bike is incredibly light. ~423lbs wet, this is 600 class light people.
Engine power is good especially with the reduced weight.
Bike is nimble, easy to turn, and easy to ride.
Electronic suspension on R model is great and easy to make quick customized changes to.

Wheelie control sux.

A good update, but not enough to put it at the top of the pack. The electronics are holding the bike back and it was a mistake to not use the IMU as part of wheelie control.

The Honda is also expensive. The base is $17k and you can get the new Gixxer R model with all the bells and whistles for $17k.

The new Gixxer will be the best bang for the buck and unlike the ZX-10R its engine makes great power all over the place.

Only part I find hard to believe. You can get a Gen 5 in the $12k range with every thing the Gixxer R comes with. You are right on the engine tho, its seems to be making power everywhere, but it still remains to be seen if the top end is there with the 10r & S1kRR.

If that dyno is true the gixxer is dominating in horsepower and torque the entire time, WOW.
