Comparison test ... Apples & Oranges.... This is what I do ..... read everything
you can get your hands on !!!!! research .... go to dealers .... look at the bike
sit on it, touch it ... how do you fit on it .... and if you can , ride it .....

Let the bike speak to you .... just don't buy something because it's the fastest
thing on the planet .... ZX 10 , S 1000 rr two VERY nice bikes .............

Can do so much more than the average rider can even imagin ... on the street
you will most likely NEVER even come close to what these bikes are capable of.
I've been riding almost 50 yrs ...... raced, sport toured the country, track ride ..
been around the block a few times ... buy what fits your needs, be practicle
ride it , enjoy it, most of all ....... ride safely use your head ...

Interesting comment because as much as I love my S1000RR, I find the ZX-10R to be of equal quality fit and finish. The Kawasaki's I've owned and own today have been bullet proof.

"I have no idea. How fast was I going?"
