RC-51 or R-I, both truly worthy contenders, Honda on speed, Yamaha on balance and handling.

Well the Sports Bike i would have from the list would definately be the 2005 Yamaha YZF-R1 but other than that i would love to have a Suzuki GSX-1300R Hayabusa (old one, without the speed limiter) and a 2005 Kawasaki ZX-10R filling up my garage.

It feels so good to Dream...........

My choice among these japanese bikes is Yamaha R1 but Ducati 999r would have been my choice if it was included here.

I've always been a Honda guy when it comes to bikes. Needless to say, it's the 1000 'blade / RC51 for me.

Thumbs up

one of the last pieces of a zx 9r for me please, well if they don't have any old stock left then the zx 14 would be good enough.
the blackbird comes a close third though.

It would be the 1000 RR for me and the R1 comes a close second

Why isnt the Blackbird 1100 XX included in this poll?

because all the above are track bikes, the blackbird, busas and the 12 r s are all sport tourers.

R1 for me too
Fireblade is next...but this is a tough poll !!!!
Actually given a wider choice I would prolly go for the Ducati 996 or the Aprilia RSV Mille...

Any of the above. So that I could sell it, get a Yamaha R6 and take the engine out. My mind is a dark place...

On a sober note, I would really like a Gixxer Thou, something about that bike...
