Place your bets, 08 10r vs. 09 r1

So... a little background story:

A dude I knew got an 09 R1 (I don't know this guy very well btw). I made the playful comment that it's not as fast as the 10r, but still pretty cool. That was the jumping off point for him to tell EVERYONE that we mutually know (and probably some other people too) that his bike could tear mine up... not a close race mind you, a land slide in the R1's favor. I've just kinda let it go, told my side of the story when asked, and just waited for an eventual meet up. Evidently our meet-up got pushed a lot closer when one of the more mouthy mutual friends decided to put $600 on the line for me to win (basically, the R1 owner is betting him $600), and the race is scheduled for the 13th. Both bikes are equally modded (full system, PC5) and I weigh about 175 or so suited to his at minimum 230 suited (being generous here, possibly 250).

So what do you guys think? I'm guessing this is going to be a roll race, but I can handle launching too.

what kind of race? drag, track? same mods, on the drag i believe the 10r is faster, on the track i guess its a close call.. the r1's engine was designed to the track purpose.. not the best power, but great power delivery.

The stock 08' ten will out accelerate both the 14 and the busa in a straight line. What is this guy thinking putting the new R1 that is down on power from last year against it, especially with a weight disadvantage. Looking forward to a good kill

I voted close call before I read the whole post and learned of the rider weights. The smaller rider on the 10 should be able to win this. I will submit that the 09 R1 is not a slouch though. I've ridden with a couple, and they have what it takes. I really like the form factor too. It's the first R1 that tempts me to buy Yamaha. I'm too happy with my gen1 to ever do it though.

it woudl depend on how well both launch, but the r1 is actually lesser on power than the 08 R1 itself, so the 10r would EAT the r1 for sure

I think it's going to be a roll race. Based off the reviews I've read that weren't funded by Yamaha, it looks like the R1 is both heavier AND less powerful than my 10r (in stock trim at least).

I voted 10r by small margin. 1 missed shift by either bike will mean game over IMO.
