    And I love it:bowdown: It's kinda like having a nasty fast mini bike that is streetable. It does blow the doors off my 748 in performance.:eek4: Don't get me started:squint:

    I wanted the GSXR and wife wanted CBR got a better deal on the CBR. Plus I always liked Honda. But I did have a Suzuki Quadracer for years and that thing was rock solid.

    Well I movied from NJ to FL. So I can ride year round and there is alot less traffic. Also I don't have room for another car so I get bikes. When my new house is built I will have plenty of room for bikes and cars.

    Nice Bike, I would have gotten a Honda if It sat as nice as the Suzuki. I cant figure out what it is about Honda, but it just doesnt fit me .. I bought a GSXR 750 and loving it ..

    What's your impression about the handling characteristics of the bike compared to your Ducatis?

    It feel much lighter more flickable. The suspention is perfectly tuned for the bike. It feels lighter in tip in or turn in and is much easier to do parking lot manuvers. The bike feels tiny compared to my Ducatis. Lots of grip handles great. But I think the 748 Handles better. It's a little heavier when you start to turn in and need to muscle it a bit but once in the corner it sticks and leans over easier. It pulls so much harder out of corners then the CBR. Also if you need to make currection on the ducati, it's much more forgiving and does not feel loose were the CBR is very twichy. On a race track who knows. But I will say this the speedo flys up faster on the ducati then the CBR. But there is a 148cc advantage on the ducati.

    Oh the brakes on the CBR are WAY better then on my Ducati.

    Just adding this after this weekends ride

    CBR:

    Suspention is a little on the soft side Need to place with the settings.
    It's really not as fast as I thought it was
    Braking at high speeds feels weaker then the Ducati (???????) Pads?
    Donlop 218 tires are ok but PP are much better I will be switching to those when I ware these out.

    I was a little to quick to say that. I was so impressed with the CBR but ridding them now back to back the only thing the CBR has over the Ducati is braking performance. The rush of power over 8K makes the bike feel faster then the Ducati but looking at the speedo the ducati flys up in speed faster then the CBR. Both are awsome bikes I'm glad I have both to enjoy.

    No 600 is really enough for me. I rather enjoy the ride instead of watching my self and feeling intimidated. The 916 was a awsome machine but I was riding it over my skill level. My wife wanted the 1000rr but i did not want her on that beast so really happy with the 600 and she is happy with the rr. But I will have a 1098 by this summer waiting to see it in the flesh before I spend my green on it.

    I think you just have to get used to the way the I4 generates power compared to the twin.

    With the twin you can keep it at sane revs and get good power. The I4 -- when going for a spirited ride, you want to be in the powerband at all times (around 10,000 rpm or so). If you keep in the powerband through the corner, the acceleration out of it will be much more eventful.

    Twins are pretty good at holding their own at around-town speeds. Once you exceed 70mph or so, that is when the Honda will really shine.

    That is my understanding. You probably knew that already though :p.
    Regardless, have fun with your new bike :).

    Thanks,

    Ya the CBR gives you a nice kick in the nuts over 8K And I have not really railed on it out of a corner yet because I'm still trying to get the feel of the bike.
