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.

It's all speculation at this point... one thing did leak out though... Mamola let it slip that the new R1 will be the size of the R6... :nocontrol

The looks of the R1 is not the problems, though it is getting a little long in the tooth....

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
