Question Whats the difference?

I was really thinking about getting the new 1000RR to replace my 03 954. The more I look at the new bike the more I think this might be a mistake. The only differences that I see are a few cosmetic one's and a few engine enhancements. What do you guys think, is that bike worth trading my trusty 54 in for a new 1000RR

i thought about trading my vtr1000. but i havent really seen any thing that i would be happy with. wish honda would update the s,hawk. just remember the cbr 1000 is heavier than yor 954. if you ride mainly on the street the 954 is tough to beat.

NO WAY. my buddie just got a new 54 and it is a gorgeous bike. one of two bikes i would consider getting other than mine. if it aint broke don't fix it

My bike reminds me of the woman of my dreams--nice and full up front, tapering to a narrow midsection and a wide, tight rear end. OH, and always ready to be climbed on top of, opened up and ridden hard.

the new 1000 is more technology avanced but i think you should stay with the 9.. Just depends on your riding ability and not the bike..

Started out with 2200 miles on the 9 in may currently just under 13000..

Im possibly thinkin bout buyin another 9 next year.. Over 25000 gets a little scary on the bike the way i ride..

Gonna be a little rebuildin this year anyways...

U runnin a scotts dampner?

04' Gsxr 1k

Show or go?

I have always loved the styling and power of the Gix, however I am a little spooked in the reliability dept. What the hell were they thinking with that new pipe

LOL, that pipe is pretty hideous! From everything that I have ever read or watched the Gix just doesnt stack up to Honda in terms of reliability. Then again, I am partial to Honda for numerous reasons. So, that being said I very well could be wrong.
