Want racers / trackday riders opinion
Hi i was suprised when I went to the ama superbike race in Millville NJ. In the 1125cc buells in superbike agaist the other 1000cc machine was clearly a better handling and better braking machine especially in the extreamly tight backsection of the course . But in the Daytona sportbike class the 1125cc Buells looked like a Harley Roadking in comparison to the 600cc machines . I own/ owned the kawasaki zx10 and suzuki GSXR but havnt even ridden a current 600cc sportbike . For those who RACE or do TRACK DAYS on both a 1000cc 4cyl sportbike and a 4cyl 600cc sportbike . Is the differance really that great? I was under the impression that in this day and age the liter bikes has essentually caught up to the 600cc middleweight class in respect to handling .. or does it just seem that was because the differance doesnt show up till your pushing the bikes to thier linits ? Thanks Jake
PLEASE DO NOT TURN THIS THREAD INTO A BUELL /DMG/CONSPEARACY RANT . THATS BEEN BEAT TO DEATH . IM JUST CURIOUS ABOUT COMPARING 1000CC 4CYL HANDLING VS 600CC 4CYL HANDLING...... THE BUELL IS JUST A COMPARISON REFFERANCE POINT !!
