2004 500R vs GS500F

Which of the 2 bike handle better?

What are the 1/4 miles time for both bikes?

I know the 500R has a few more horses and is lighter so I am guessing its would be better then the GS500F in both my other questions.

If anyone has some solid numbers to compare besides all the specs which I already know plz let me know.

To be quite honest with you the specs don't matter if you can't do anything with them. Does it make any difference which is faster in the 1/4? Every 600 out there will be faster than both of them, yet you still see people on 500's dusting people on 600's. It's the rider more than it is the bike. Rest assured that the power they have is enough to beat almost any 4-wheel vehicle off the line.

As far as the numbers you're wanting:

I'd say get the kawasaki EX500 would romp the GS500F.

EX 500 can do mid 12's at like 105mph.

I dont know about handling, but i know a lot of people like to race the EX500's or Suzuki SV650S's
