Just bought the 08 Blue/Black ZX10R after ridding Honda for 10 years. Still have 07 1000RR, I hope the Green machines stacks up. Any one ride both bikes? Im heading to bike week wich will be the first time I ride the Kaw.

My 07 RR was a torque monster, it easily pulled up in 1-3 gear just by hard accel and 4th gear with a slight pop. Is the 10R worthy? I hope it has that low end torque like the Honda.

i used to work for Honda, and have ridden cbr1000rr's on daily basis.
my '06 10R is so raw! i absolutely love it!
the honda is very tame, in comparison.

Awsome and welcome!!! Just like me, and i´m also new in this forum. I´ve been riding Honda for many years but sold my raceblade 1000RR (keeping my CBR 929RR for street though) and now i´ve bought a new ZX10 -08. Scheduled to be delivered sometime in March. Let us know what you think of the differences between your bikes. Cheers.

First of all, welcome aboard! :hello:

Ok, I can't really comment on the newer models, but I have an 05 10R and a good friend of mine has an 05 CBR 1K which I have ridden quite a few times and I can say that between those two...it is like night and day.

The 10R is an all out beast of a machine and the CBR is very tame compared to it. The CBR is a more laid back 1000 compared to the 10R, but both will put a smile on your face when you twist that throttle. :thumbsup:

It's all a matter of preference when it comes down to it and it may depend a bit on your riding style. For the most part, the CBR is a bit "easier" to ride since its not as "raw" as the 10R is. The 10R demands respect at all times. Either way, as long as your riding that's all that matters. Enjoy them both.

Guess I'm to late....I heard the 08 Honda 1ks might even be better than the 08 Kawi 1ks...maybe not in HP but on the Track and Roll-ons.....some might say I'm :stir: but hate to see someone switch from Honda after all that loyalty for so long. :mrgreen: :lol:


almost forgot :welcome::helmet:
