Which bike is fastest?(I know it's a common question)

Alright so here's the deal, I am looking into buying a new 600cc supersport bike from one of the big 4. I live in saskatchewan and we don't even know what corner's are we have absolutely no need for cornering or anything at all on a bike except to go really fast in a straight line. So my question is which new bike (07 or 08) is the fastest in a line?

P.S. I would prefer facts only if possible.

All of the 600cc Race Reps are fast enough to turn you into a greasy spot.

If the 600 isn't fast enough for you, they do make 750 cc and 1000 cc class supersports, you know.

The funny thing about your question is that you're concerned with getting the fastest of four 600 cc class supersport bikes, when they are all within a small fraction of a second of each other on the quarter mile. There is no more variance between the manufacturers than there is between bikes of the same manufacture.

it may seem that everyone is being harsh but its for your own good. people who post for the first time on the board and ask questions like you most likely dont even have a bike. we are all just trying to keep you from making a bad decision and hurting yourself or others. if you choose to stay and learn GREAT we always welcome new ppl. if you choose to ignore what we have to offer then....i'd get the honda coffin model :P

FACT: the speed of the bike is %90 rider, %10 bike.

All the race rep 600's run mid-high 10's in the quarter and top out at 155-160mph. In terms of performance, they are all literally within 1% of each other.

As has already been said, it's 90% rider.
