    It definitely weighs a lot less, that R1 is the lightest bike I've ever ridden.

    :eek: Whoa...I'm not into bikes all that much but there are a few I definitely admire. One is the Ducatti 996. The other is the Yamaha R1. :burnout:

    SNK BITN, I love my '03 R6 I can do no wrong on this bike! It is so much fun in the hills, just about the all around best bike in its class. In fact the "04 R6 has minimal changes but to tighten up some of the short comings that it has experienced. But then again in the AMA Super Sport class the Yami is 1-2 with alot of good riders in there!

    95oRANGEcRUSH, well it should be interesting in the 2004 Super Bike season! Yamaha did not field a factory bike this year so they could focus on the Super Sport class. Now with the new bike with good riders (i.e. get Jamie Hacking and Damon Buckmaster to compete in this class as well) they will give Suzuki a serious head acke! Just like a car, a lighter bike will go faster and handle better. The Yamaha has always had pretty nibble, light bikes that are well suspended that make reasonable power. The Zukes have made mad power and handle ok but are not comfortable to ride and not very reliable.

    That is one bad a$$ bike I have allways owned Yamahas. My last one was an 01 R1. I love the way they ran the Exhaust up under the seat makes the bike look much cleaner.

    I am kinda thinking of buying an R6 (R1 is just too much power for me) but I want to practice and become more expierenced before I do so.

    Yes it is, 2003 was the first year for the R6 where I think '02 was for the R1. Crack the left grip hard and not only do I have to think of the front wheel coming up but the effects of my vision as my eyeballs flatten! Oh baby adding the displacement of the R1!!!!

    Yeah took awhile before they "owned" anything. Yamaha put a foot in everyone's ass with the original R1. Then Suzuki caught up for a couple of years.

    Looks like Yamaha will be doing it all over again. :beer:

    Am I on drugs or is the throttle of a motorcycle really on the left handgrip?
