Your thoughts on the CBR 954....From a performance standpoint....

Howdy guys, first post here.

Just trying to pick some brains. I am in the process of deciding between either a ZX9R or 954 for my next bike. What is everyone's opinion on this comparison, and the 954 as a bike? I've heard real good things about them, and the last time I rode one I really enjoyed it.

Any input is appreciated!!!

I had a 954 last year and totally enjoyed it..

I ended up putting 10000 miles on it then trading it in.. Its all a matter of peferance.. I would perfer the 954 over ALMOST any bike out there right now.. I love the way you sit in the more upright position, great handling and power.. Im still deciding if i wanna go back to a 954 or the new gsxr 1000... Im just not to happy with the new cbr 1000rr.. The comfort, and not any trunk space just dont do it for me..

Ive had a couple of guys ride the zx9 and it no where compairs to the 954 in my book.. Honda relialiby is the best..

Just my but i will NEVER ever go with kawi..

Just a personal perferance..

04' Gsxr 1k

Show or go?

Mine was one of the first into this country in '00 so we have clocked some good miles & been trouble free bar the factory recall for the clutch & fuel line.

Very comfortable riding position. Some claim the saddle is like a plank, but I like it over a softer or custom made saddles.

Runs cooler then the 954 with its large rad, good handeling, lots of power & the only things not stock on mine are Kevlar front brake lines & Scotts steering head damper.

What can I say for I do not race it, but do ride it hard. Only reason for the 954 is that at 74 yrs of age I do not have to many riding years left so simply bought it in preference to the 1000. The 954 has NOT replaced the 929 as I ride them both & same with the '97 Yamaha YZF600r. They all get equal time & are riden hard.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

ROFL who buys a sportbike for comfort anyway...

The 954 is an awesome bike that does everything very well, the build quality, the suspension compliancy & the reliability of the Honda is very apparent when compared to the same aspects of the Kawasaki


But there is no way in hell I am ever letting go of my 1000RR LOL
