for some reason I don't think its worth the money compared to its competition.
I don't think you can lean it enough either to make it around the track fast enough.

sorry to say but the BMW bike looks hideous, looks like something from the early 90's


This is what modern sport bikes should look like

All European bikes are underpowered and under performers for the price. Japanese bikes really have the advantage as far as performance. Looks wise, Ducatis and MV Augustas might look a tad better, but not enough for me to spend 50 too 100% more on a bike just for looks. I can take that money buy a Japanese bike, buy mods and decimate anything Euro on the track.

Oh wait thats what already happened

Actually I do. If you believe that the Euro bikes are so superior, buy one. Your money not mine. I know what I would do. Ive been riding sport bikes for over 15 years and have owned my share of bikes, including a Ducati 996R. Yup a real 996R. Sure it was nice, but besides for pulling a lot of dick at bike night (my gf's words not mine), it was no faster the the R1 I replaced it with. The money I got selling the R got me a R1, Ohlins GP fork and rear shock, Marchenisi wheel and Akra Race pipe with PC and still put cash into my pocket. 5-10k goes a long way in modding a bike.

There's a reason why Superbike "changed" their rules once Ducati started getting their assess handed to them.
