if they want to do something worthwhile in updating the R1, give it enough power to match the other bikes. Even the Honda has more power now...sheesh, we cant have that.
My buddy was telling me he saw this thing where Rossi was riding the R1 at some press event and was straight up clutching it midcorner to get more power out of it...but then, as we saw at MotoGP, Rossi is no mere mortal. Either way, the R1 needs a little help.
I sure hope so, The new CBR1000RR weighs less than a Gsxr 600.
If the pic that AirForce.R6 put is is even close to the production model than Yamaha is heading in the right direction. Less fairing coverage is what Honda did to shed some weight. I cant wait for more information to come out about it
