If your talking about me...yeah I am always at a weight disadvantage, old age, out of shape and more the reason I feel better when taking the young ones down on higher HP bikes...they can't buy experience. :wink:

The Sport mode bumps the power back up to its full 193 claimed crankshaft horsepower (probably about 180 at the rear wheel, and believe us when we say that power felt close to that mark; we'd been riding a modified Japanese literbike with 165 rear wheel horsepower before the trip, and the Beemer was MUCH faster), with less intervention from both TC and ABS systems.

Bike's gonna be fast.

But then, so what, it just becomes a dick wagging contest. And the BMW has been dubbed the winking pirate.

The DTC and ABS and actually functional power modes look cool though. 46mm fronk forks are MV huge.

The bike is not the variable in this equation. Unless you've got a factory ride, there's no reason to be a fanboy to the "kawi family."

:dontknow: What are you trying to say? You've got a beemer on order, so you're obviously not biased toward a particular brand. I just can't stand hearing "it's not a yamahondazuki, so it must suck and my bike will kick its ass."

at Portimao.....


I'll wait to read a real road test. I was very excited about the motorcycle-usa review, but looks like beemer tied their hands at getting a good test, by only providing the bike at their event, with no dyno. When they get one here in the US, on a dyno back to back with the competition, I'll believe. However, dancing around the head to head comparison makes me think it's nothing all too special. I don't doubt it's good, but I don't think it's a game changer.

BMW can build motors this much is true!
but can they build a true superbike? Motor, handling the whole 9 yards? I hope so! it would be great to see something new come out of the gate and upset the industry with big changes! like the R1 did 10 years ago

And I claim my mostly stock 04 zx10 makes 220 at the rear wheel...and I can make it happen with the right compensation.

If they're on top of the world...why not openly test against the others?
