If you want good reviews, check out the foreign press. The 1KRR is almost unanamously motorcycle of the year.
Here in the U.S. the press loves pure power, that fast feeling, best, hence the love for the Busa, GXSR-1000 and 10R.
I own one and am now up to 5000 miles on it.
Best bike I have ever ridden, touched or seen.
In all black it is beautiful.
Dont be misled by reviews touting the RR as slow and fat. It does weigh 30lbs more than the 10R but if its moving, that weight goes away. Power wise its on par and the way the entire package is sorted out it has the ability to glide through corners at speeds most other bikes would find impossible.
Straight line its not as fast as the 10R, stock.
Racing, the 1000RR is Dominant in MotoGP except for Rossi-God, Dominant in AMA Superbike, except for Mladin and is neck and neck with the leaders in almost every other racing class with or without factory support.
