AboutBought my Blade in August 2013, it was a choice between Repsol or HRC, and the Repsol won.
The main reason for change, was that in September 2013, I was going to ride the Route Napoleon, and as good as my 08 R1 was, I had never felt totally confident on it, so about 5 weeks before the trip, the r1 was sold and the Repsol arrived.
Prior to getting the Blade, I had a 08 R1...04 R1....GSXR1000 K1....Yamaha FZR1000 Genesis (I had this bike for 13 years, and sold it for £200 less than I paid for it! )...Yamaha FJ 1300 (not sure why I bought that).. ..Suzuki Katana 1100....Suzuki Katana 1000...Suzuki Katana 650...and first bike was Honda 250 Super Dream.
Of the bikes owned, I would say the Blade is on par with the 04 R1, if not better.
