    Mark, you really should try one. I'm on a couple of R1 forums and the current model sounds like a great ride as long as you're not tall, especially if you're planning to track it.

    Do avoid the early ones though - the 2015 had a gearbox recall, and there's been ongoing changes to the engine each model year. A 2018 would be good if you can afford it, and has upgraded electronics.

    Nothing wrong with a ZX10R but it doesn't have a crossplane engine and the electronics aren't as good.
    Thanks Moise! I can confirm I am not tall at 5'8".

    To get a 2018+ year model, I'd have to spend $14k+; not sure I want to spend that, however, and I don't want the cheaper R1S model, either.

      I had a ZRX 1100 back in the day.
      What Mike said. I'm only looking for traditional sport riding position bikes.

              Thanks for the link, but I was looking for something a bit newer and with more power.

                That ZX 10 R in S. Carolina
                I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.
