I mean look at the trend, all the new bikes are getting fitted with more and more electronics and rider aids. I think the only way for ya to be happy is to stick with your Widow Maker or 4th Gen lol.
I like electronics, it just slowed down the production of new generation of sportbikes by a decade? All I want is a fun bike to ride? I don't care if little Jonny wins for the next 10 years in WSBK. Give me something with balls and fun to ride. Enough of the easy to ride linear powerband with anemic sluggish midrange.

Slow??? How?? Where?? I'm gonna guess that you've never ridden one? Nothin slow about the H2! That thing gets scary an dangerous in a hurry! Only thing really unappealing about it is the headlight. They could've did a better job on that but you can tell it was a afterthought. They just slapped one on there to make it street legal. It's not as heavy as you think, and when you ride it you barely notice the weight. It's WAAAY better looking than that ugly ass R1 you wanna buy. They completely fucked the headlights on that bike, it looks like a star wars character. How did the R1 go from having the best looking headlights to the worst?

Hahaha this thread gave me a good laugh!
I agree, not a fan of the current ZX10, neither the Gen 4 to be perfectly honest.
Expected so much more from this bike, but the lack of low and midrange power is quite frustrating at times.
S1000RR feels like a much better bike in every aspect to me

I agree on the H2. They are stupid fast. It's deceptive, but crazy. Flash tune and exhaust and nothing can touch it, except when the bike cannot get traction lol.

True Story Trackaddict! Even at 530lbs, this hunk of shit from Kawi can't even put the power down! The bike always get the smackdown from the S1000RR and the BMW is all motor, no silly supercharger! The bike is all hype and fall short in the real world!

Relax Ziggy! I never said that the new R1 is not ugly! Looks like a friggin crab! The price is right and the aftermarket is done right. Not digging the blue stuff but it is an easy fix. All bikes nowdays are ugly except the unreliable Italians.

Do it! There's nothing quite like the actual experience and its definitely not like the other I-4's. If it turns out it's not right for you, then no problem. The market for the R1 is still decent enough that you shouldn't have too much trouble getting rid of it for most of your money back in a year.

What's there to lose?
