The R1 and the GSXR1000 seem to be the bikes of choice for the squids who gotta have the latest thing (even if they don't know how to ride).
One of the factors that got me onto the ZX10R (over the also-then-new R1) was that even though the MSRP was within a couple hundred bucks, the ZX10R ended up being a couple grand less expensive.
Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
