Just purchased 05 R1
1 Attachment(s)
I just purchased a 2005 R1 with 2000 miles. The bike is very clean and well taken care of. I am very impressed with the way the bike handles but I am comparing it to my 1998 900RR which was like driving a tank compared to the R1. The power is very good except for low RPMs (under 5 grand). Once you hit around 6 thousand RPMs the bike really wakes up. I like the rider position but I am sorta missing that huge ass tank on the 900rr. All in all I am very happy with the bike. Looking for a license plate kit. The guy who owned the bike before me had the license plate zip tied to the passanger foot peg brackets. I would like to thank Vash for some good input on the 05 ZX10R that I was originally going to buy. After talking to him and doing some research I decided against the ZX10.
