    Technically yes, but only because Mr Rutter forgot to switch off the ABS and, by his own admission, fecked up the gear change at least once on every lap he did before it pissed down.

    He states it would have been at least a second a lap quicker then, so for the Stat lovers amongst us that then makes it quickest to date! ;)

    I've not ridden the Aprilia myself, although I did sit on one on it's paddock stand in SP motorcycles. It really is a cracking bike, but at 5' 8" I'm waaaaaay too tall for it.......;)

    Forgot that, missed this, the Times are all that matters lol ;)
    For the stats - that is ;)

    Anyway at almost 6' 2" not sure I would be any faster on something so small? Ok for little Rutters ;)

    I like them but not ridden one. but from sitting on a few I found it way to small for my 6ft 2" lardy ass

    Why I test rode the R1, Blade and BMW. and ended up with a blade as it ticked all my boxes

    This is interesting Carl and im trying to think of any radical changes that could be made to the Blade to make it a better bike for me. I honestly thought i would have a huge list of changes however im coming up a little short. I guess this is because the current bike is just so good, i have come up with a few things but its not the endless list i was expecting...

    T.C Traction control i have found very useful and gives that extra confidence as long as it has settings so it can be turned right down or off when necessary...

    Riding modes, Rain, Standard and Race i have also found useful on other bikes, and once in Race it would be good if the Blade could offer up another 20bhp on what it currently has now...

    Weight, ive added weight only because its good imo for all bike to continue to lose a little weight when they are updated.....

    For me thats it and 2015 will be very interesting. BMW will be releasing their new s1000rr, Yamaha have a new R1 and Honda may have a new Blade....
