Every opinion is respected here, but you don't even know what you re talking about!
In fact it's the R1 that is really JUNK (with capital letters) if compared to that bike.
If price is a factor, then the R1 is really good, but this isn't the point here.
A brief description might help you realize the truth
'Just 50 examples of this Yoshimura Tornado S-1 sportbike will be built, for those bikers lucky enough to afford £23,000 for perhaps the ultimate GSXR1000 special.
Japanese company Yoshimura will be exhibiting the machine at a Tokyo show, but it will be available in the UK. Featuring a high compression Gixer 1000 motor, built to the usual Yoshimura high standards, the bike has a handlebar mounted switchable ignition map - for those trackday moments - plus quick-shift gears and a whopping 168bhp.
Ohlins suspension, aluminium wheels and Nissin six pot braking complete this high performance special, which even comes with its personal Snap-on tool kit.'
