I so want a go on one of these now.
I take MCN with a pinch of salt.
Every new bike they test they say its the best ever.....
The only way that rag still exists is by being so far up the manufacturers rectums that any chance of balanced journalism is just a pipe dream.
I'm looking forward to PB doing a group test later on this year to see which bike will come out on top.
Agree about MCN but I have grown to love the new R1's looks.
It does look nice, especially in race trim with the akrapovic exhaust.
The new blade is going to have to be something special
Does sound good!!
Have to say I saw it today in the flesh for the first time at the scottish bike show.
I liked it, especially in the red and white colours.
quite possibly,difference is,i think everyone (testers,reviews etc) are saying the same thing,it's the dogs.
Saw it yesterday in the flesh. Looks the mutts nutts man. 15k with Magnesium wheels, aluminum tank, and 6 axis electronics package is a very good price. Think BMW's equivalent model is near 18k.
Let's hope there is a new blade in 2016 to keep up with these new breeds
I've been hoping for this for the last 3 years without any luck.
Why i'm looking at the R1 this year
According to the guy from Two Wheels Honda in Edinburgh there is no new blade set for release.
However he did state that they didn't know of the new VFR800 until IT was unveiled to the public.
He also did say that more manufacturers will look towards turbos due to new emissions laws.
There's no doubt it is a gorgeous looking bike with all the toys and power to back it up.
Anyone ever considered that Honda could just be sitting on the wall, waiting to see what they need to do to take the lead again. It's not like Honda don't know what they're doing, I think it could be a ploy and suddenly they'll release something very special in the near future.
I'm totally happy with my 2015, as I love inline four's, but I think it'll be something very special when it does arrive. Lets face it, now they know what they have to beat.
I'm up at Silverstone on the 16th-17th April to try the R1 amongst others, let you know how it goes.
I think the new R1 is a cracking looking bike, only saw it in the flesh for the first time. I think it needs a tail tidy and to get rid of that chunky exhaust and it'll look and sound great. The front headlights are a bit marmite though, apart from that 200bhp out of the box? Yes please! I'll look forward to trying one out soon and if it delivers I'll consider one in a year or so's time.
What a bike if your getting one you will not be disappointed, it's the bollox. Unfortunately they don't do a black one.
MT09 Tracer was fun as well
R6 bit wheezy
WR250 great fun (first off road experience)
Must get me a proper job one day
It may be good dude, but fuck me.......that's one ugly muther!
