Well, the performance looks good but what have they done with the exhaust (feel pity for the bike). Hope other makes and models don't adopt that.


Any other 2005 models guys?

What a way of getting an old dead thread to life. Do race victories mean better bikes??? Ferrari lost this most of the races this season at F1 does that mean all Ferrari road cars made this year suck???

Bro I seriously hope u know what you are speaking. Suzuki GSXR 1000 is the most successful track bike in the history of racing. Have a look at who wins the AMA Superbike, World Superbike, Australian Superbike, Isle of Mann, German Superbike, Canadian superbike championships and on which bike. Apart from one or two races Yamaha R1 has never seen a podium...

Well, since u mentioned the R1, have u heard of the R7??? Yamaha produced a limited run of the motorcycle inorder to meet one of the regulations of the Gran Prix that states that a road going model of every race bike has to be produced and sold in the market. The R7 takes the R1 any day..... But yeah, the R1 does score over most bikes in the handling department.

If looks could kill sure the R1's deadly, however I don't even think it stands a chance near the previous generation Ninja ZX-10 which is absolutely unforgiving, outright lethal. GSX-R is a far fetched thought for the R1 I think. But all this in picture only when you're squeezing the last out of each of these (unless you're twisting the throttle on your ninja without thinking twice

I had heard that the R7 was hyper expensive limited edition and it was a joke among bike journalists that even the body work of the R7 would be more expensive than the R1 itself.

In the base trim the R7 to my knowledge cant take an R1. I think there were around 500 bikes produced with the most trick parts available. It was Yamaha's first real effort at Fuel Injection. However the bike never could take the limelight from Honda's VTR 1000 and is one the "Great but for nothing" models. Handling is something very specific to riders and I wont comment on that. I am not sure but I think Ducati will/has come out with a tricked out road going track bike ... in lieu with Yamaha R7 to compete in the world superbike racing...
