Den - when did you say the last time you rode a RR was?? No one said the 10 was slower or that the RR was better. Just said that the RR was impressive. The mags make the RR out to be a slow sled. I did not find this to be after riding his RR for quite some time. The 10 is definitely a faster, more agile feeling bike, but the dyno tells the story: In "Roadracing World" April 2004 issue the CBR, GIxxer 1000, and the 10 were compared in every way - on the dyno the CBR puts out more power than the 10 all the way up to 9500 rpm - from there the 10 just leaves it. When riding the RR you do notice the power advantage of the RR at the bottom and it pulls pretty hard till 10 grand where it feels like it levels out - the 10 just keeps pulling - different power in different areas. Hope you ride one soon - you'll see.
